Door Christmas Decoration!

Door Christmas Decoration!

Most of them cost so much money we just pass it by. This is an easy way to make one for more than half the price at most stores that sell the pre made.

Perfect for over doorways or arched furniture pieces!

Here's what I did:

Here is what you should have on hand:
Pipe cleaners in different colors 
Glue gun
Old ornaments
Green wreath garland
2- 18 inch green garland wreath from the dollar store
Glitter glue in red or green
Assorted decorations IE old pine cones, red berries, poinsettia flowers, little wrapped presents or drums any kind of ornaments you aren't using anymore. 

Bought two wreaths from the dollar store, clipped the fasteners with a plier, then fastened them lengthwise together with pipe cleaners. 

The I wrapped this with green wreath garland. Fastened it at each end with bows. Used pipe cleaners in green to twist tie together in four places.

I found many loose older ornaments than I took apart and used the flowers, bulbs, presents, drum, birds, berries and pine cones.
I used a glue gun after I positioned them where I liked.

You can also purchase glitter and dip the pinecone and other decorations into glitter before you place them on the banner wreath.

Let dry then hang wherever you like in your home.

Homemade Coconut Oil Salt or Sugar Scrub

I was inspired from my good friend Jessica to make this coconut oil salt body scrubs. After she told me about this coconut oil body scrub she made, I just had to try it. It was so easy and works like a charm to soften rough skin. She is all about healthy eating, healthy living and during her visit we talked the great changes she's made making healthier experiences for herself and others. Thanks Jessica, love this! I also love the sugar scrub also in this post. Keep reading! 
 Thanks for stopping by, Ciao Claudia

Thanks Jessica!

Homemade Coconut Oil Salt Scrub 

1 1/2 cups coconut oil
2 cups Epsom salt
20 drops of your favorite oil ( lavender, fruit scents whatever you like)

The easiest way to mix this is to microwave the coconut oil for a few seconds to become easy to stir.
In a bowl add the oil, salt and mix until well combined. I used disposable bowls and old spoons to mix it with.

Stir in the fragrance oil.

For the Sugar Scrub:

You read that right! These are both two ways to make fabulous scented body scrubs that removes dead skin. I was amazed to see the results in just two uses. Perfect all year long. I made two different kinds. The salt scrub is great to make the bottoms of your feet silky smooth or any rough area of your skin. The sugar perfect for arms, legs, especially after a beach day. Just like going to a spa, so pamper yourself! Use your favorite fragrance oils or citrus peels in either one.  Most jars to store this great scrub in can be found in local thrift stores or use some fancy food jars. Thanks for reading and check out this short Youtube clip above and subcribe and stop by and visit Whats Cookin Italian Style Cuisine two of my favorite pass times. Ciao Claudia

2 cups sugar
1/3 cup coconut oil
20 drops of your favorite fragrance oil

Proceed same directions.

Place in pretty air tight containers ( I got mine at the dollar store). Add a ribbon. These makes great gifts! I love the salt one in the summer especially to use on the bottoms of your feet it makes them so soft and it smells great!

Be sure to clean the shower floors or bathtub as this residue can become very slippery.
