21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Snowman Stackables on: March 08, 2004 06:42:12 PM
 I actually found this at a thrift store, but since I am obsessed with Snowmen I thought I'd share the idea with everyone.  It seems like a simple enough craft to make

22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Candy Wreath on: March 08, 2004 06:40:41 PM
 Ok everyone, here is my first post with a pic  Cheesy

Lately I have been into making wreaths out of candy for people.

  This is the one I made my mother in law for Valentines Day

It is 100% fine to eat! I will try to post instructions with pictures.  
 
   You can either buy a wire wreath shape, (I just make them out of coat hangers which I bend then use a strong tape, and tape the overlapping wire together).  


  Then you take a very very long string (I use a "small" cotton string, more hardware then crafts, (I found string got too tangled up)


    Fold your string in two and tie it to the top of your wreath with the knot going "around" the wire.  

    Then you start to make another knot, but before you tie it too tightly you slip the end of three wrapped candies in it, then finish your knot.

    You just keep repeating this process, every once in awhile pushing the candies up to keep the wreath looking full.

   At the end tie a bow if you wish.  Before I put the candies into the knots, I like to make sure that both ends of the candy wrapper is twisted tightly.  If your knots aren't tight enough, the Candy may fall off the finished product.

    When eating the candy, you simply unwrap a candy and slide it out, leaving the wrapper on the wreath!

 Hope these make sense.  I will try to make a new one tonight with step by step pics.

  The bath salts I give out are a combination of Epsom, Dead Sea, and Sea salts.  I add dried Lavender, or add some pure EO.  Every seems to love them. Sometimes I color them as well. Easy , inexpensive gift!

 I am big and I mean BIG into lip balms, etc.  Does anyone know how to get the fragrances of soda for craft purposes? You know to scent lotion etc? I know you can buy pop flavoured lip gloss.  How can I do this myself?
27  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Loofah Soaps on: February 06, 2004 01:20:46 PM
 Alrighty, no digital camera yet, but here is something I made. I grated up some loofah, and using melt and pour soaps made a replica of a soap the "Body Shop" used to sell.  The loofah mixed in the soap makes it a wonderful exfoliator!
