MAKE THESE EASY CONE OMBRE CHRISTMAS TREES

I love a quick and easy DIY as much as the next gal and let me tell you, these ombre Christmas tree cones couldn’t be easier to make! They make such a statement in a festive display too and really POP! I bought the plain cones from Hobbycraft and they were only £2 each so it’s a cheap and effective way to add to your Christmas decorations as well!

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain Christmas tree cones // White spray paint // Colourful spray paint in the shades of your choice (We used berry pink, spa blue and sun yellow from Rustoleum // Gold craft paint // A small paintbrush //

STEP 1:

First you’ll want to spray paint the cones white until they’re completely covered, I did two coats just to make sure. Then allow them to fully dry.

STEP 2:

Next, it’s time to spray paint on your colours, making sure to stop before the bottom of the cone to create the ombre effect. I found it best to spray about two thirds of the cone.

DIY CHRISTMAS SLOGAN PUN GLASSES

Calling all jingle ladies! Here we go guys, Christmas DIYs start right here and I couldn’t be more excited about it! We’re kicking things off with these funny pun slogan glasses because we all love a good pun don’t we?! These are so easy to make, we’re even stocking the stickers in our shop if you’d prefer to just buy them instead of making them (we love making Christmas as easy and fun as possible!) so let’s get started shall we? Time to get SPROUT of control with the Christmas DIYs….(paha sorry couldn’t resist!)

YOU WILL NEED:

Glassware of your choice // Gold vinyl* // /Cricut Machine // Transfer tape //

*If you don’t have a cutting machine or would prefer to just buy the vinyl stickers instead of cutting them out, then you can buy these Christmas Slogan pun stickers here and then skip straight to step 4!

STEP 1:

Open up the Cricut design space and using the font tool, type the quotes you want to cut out, the 10 slogans we went for are as follows:

-EVERYDAY I’M BRUSSELIN
-ALL THE JINGLE LADIES
-SLEIGH MY NAME SLEIGH MY NAME
-BELIEVE IN YOUR ELF
-HAPPY HOLLA DAYS
-UP TO SNOW GOOD
-SLEIGH WHAT?
-MINCE PIES BEFORE GUYS
-COS I SLEIGH
-SPROUT OF CONTROL

I then sized them all to 2 inches wide because that’s what would fit my glasses best, but size yours to whatever works for you.

HOW TO MAKE HALLOWEEN THEMED BATH BOMBS

I don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVE me a bath bomb! After we moved house last year the only downfall was not having a bath, I used to love getting in the tub, watching the crazy bath bomb fizz away while I tucked into a good book! Even though I don’t have a bath anymore my love for bath bombs still remains strong (clearly) and we all know what amazing gifts they make so I thought I would whip up a batch of Halloween themed bath bombs ready for this month! I love the idea of making a different bath bomb each month and collecting them over the year to gift at Christmas, so your gal pals have a different monthly themed bath bomb for the upcoming year! Anyway, for now let’s get cracking on these spooky bath bombs shall we?

YOU WILL NEED: (Makes 10 Bath Bombs*)

2 cups baking soda // 1 cup citric acid // 1 cup cornflour // 6 TBsp Epsom salt // 2 Tbsp coconut oil // Witch hazel (preferably in a spray bottle) // Lavender oil )or scented pure oil of your choice) // Green food colouring // Pink food colouring // Bath bomb moulds //

*Obviously the amount of bath bombs depend on how big your moulds are but this mixture made 10 bath bombs for me, 1 large, 3 medium and 6 small)

STEP 1:

First, add all of your dry ingredients (baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, and Epsom salt) into a mixing bowl and give them a good mix up together. Then, pop the coconut oil in the mix and blend together by mixing it with your fingers. You need to do this until there aren’t any clumps of coconut oil left in the mixture.

STEP 2:

Add your lavender oil into the mixture, if you’re using a 100% pure oil then you’ll only need around 10 drops, if it’s more of a fragrance oil though you’re going to need to add around 20 drops of it to really get that scent in there!
