Click through for four cool DIYs made with personal pictures that also make really memorable gifts.
Keep your hands silky smooth with the help of DIY lotion bars that can go with you anywhere. These cute little lotions make a memorable, personal homemade gift for someone special. Made with coconut oil, which has so many helpful uses around the home, the lotions stay solid at room temperature and melt into hands once warmed by your body heat.
And when you're done making these, pop the finished bars in a small container, like an empty mint tin or sachet. To use, simply rub them on dry spots, and a tiny amount of the lotion melts, leaving skin moisturized without being greasy. Place it back into its container for future use.
You'll love how your clothes, linens, and coats smell with the help of these coffee-filter scented sachets. Super absorbent baking soda sucks out bad scents and refreshes the air. And adding your favorite smells takes these little bundles of goodness to the next level. Here's how to make one:
- Place a coffee filter on your work space, fill with one to two tablespoons of baking soda, and top with lovely smelling ingredients. Use last bits of ground or whole seasonings, such as cloves, cinnamon, allspice, or ginger. You can also add fresh herbs, such as lavender, mint, rosemary, or sage.
- Pull the edges of the coffee filter together, and twist. Secure with a length of ribbon, and your sachet is ready to tuck in a drawer, cabinet, or closet. And one of these cuties would also make a fantastic homemade gift. Enjoy the lovely scent that lasts for months and months.
