  1. Thanks for the shout out, so glad you enjoyed the project! I love the candy cane striped one, what a great idea. I had those more “snow” looking salts too but wasn’t sure how well they would work. So I opted to use the others instead :) Nice job!

    I’m making the candy cane salts, with peppermint for the red and lavender for the white salts. Mmm if they make it out of my house as a gift, it’ll be a miracle. Oh! And a coordinating striped sugar scrub… I wonder if that’ll work… My house is seriously never getting cleaned again until January at least. :-)

    My fav is the lavender gift set. Just beautiful. Personally I plan to attach an ingredient card using business card stock, punch a hole in the upper left corner of the card, and tie or stick it to the sugar scrub container. Paint or paper a box or a great find from a thrift store. Use some filler paper (even construction or newspaper) can be made using your shredder. From a thrift shop pick up some extra spoons to tie to the sugar scrub container or even use small wooden scoops off of ebay or your health food store. A cd of nice easy listening music would also add a nice touch. These you made Lesie are functional, yet elegant. Thank you. I love it!

    I love the Vanilla Sugar Scrub! I wonder how long it will keep? Maybe a teaspoon of Vitamin E mixed in would preserve the shelf life? Thank you for these awesome gift ideas!

    The timing is perfect…went to the mall today to score presents for the picky teenagers during this weekends “fall sale” but am still looking for some homemadeables for some crunchy friends.

    Lovely gift ideas! :)

    These look fantastic! I’m thinking about making a set for myself first (I have to try it out, of course!) and then possibly making some for my mom, sister, and roommates…this should be fun!

    I’m definitely making sets for at least some of my roommates! And I think I’ll salt a jar then put a soap pump in the lid. Gotta love a frosted bathroom!

  9. This is such a great idea, thanks for sharing. I’m so going to try this and will share with my readers.

  10. What a fun gift idea! I love it.

    Hey – LOVE these ideas!
    Quick question though… what is Hodge Podge & where would I find it??
    Thank you for such an awesome craft idea… time to get shopping!

    Also, I’m a candle-maker from way back. It’d be a fantastic idea to do any of these & make your own scented wax and pour into your ready-made votives! Candle-making is easy so long as youve got a few basics :-)

  12. Please excuse me if this is a bit of a dopey question but in my experience sugar + heat (or moisture in a bathroom) = melt = ants/other miscellaneous bugs;

    I know you said you didn’t experience any melting with 5hrs burning but it seems like a clear sealant should be essential with sugar because of the potential bug problem; I sure don’t leave my sugar bowl uncovered!

    Absolutely love and appreciate your experiments with different textures. I’m totally going to link to this post, I want to make sure I add it to my to-try list!

    Wish I’d made these in girl scouts as a youngster rather than those ugly sand candles! They’re way cooler :)

    This is really cool! I’m only gonna try the second two recipes ’cause i spent a hour trying to find  where they sell modge podge

    ha in genere le dimensioni giuste per essere collocato, appunto, su una scrivania.

  26. A good software program would have awesome realism.
    Given the correct vibrations, could this not apply. “I see it on the screen,” Dawn’s voice interrupted.
