This is year three of homemade gifts for co-workers and neighbors. I wanted to try something outside of my normal (meaning no cooking for these gifts). So I'm in practice mode right now.
The first thing I tried was decorating a candle with pretty ribbons. While I have the ribbon on and it looks nice, what I had bought to cover up the ribbons seam isn't working. I'm still trying to figure out if I can come up with a good way to cover it up. But overall this is successful.
The second thing I'm trying to homemade potpouri mix. I found a recipe online and am trying it out as I type. It is one that you cook on the stove and just keep adding water to it. I can smell the cloves but nothing else yet. I really hope it starts smelling like cinnamon soon.
If neither of these work, I guess I'll have to come up with a third idea. I like to keep it inexpensive but still nice. Any ideas?
