This craft today is a quick one: but a really lovely, useful present: flavoured, fragrant oils and sugars are delicious additions that anyone who cooks will be delighted to receive!
The first is Vanilla Sugar- (you can also make lavender sugar)
In a large jar (I used a kilner jar), fill it with sugar, and into this put a vanilla pod (or stalks of lavender) and leave for a couple of weeks to infuse. That simple!!
The flavoured oils are as simple: decide on what flavour you want: herbs, chillies, peppercorns are all a good choice. I chose organic rosemary and peppercorns in olive oil. In a glass bottle, you put your herbs or whatever you have chosen into the oil to infuse for a couple of weeks.
Made now, these, decorated with beautiful fabric tied around the lids with handmade tags, are a simple, beautiful and useful present for a loved one in your life!
Sweet! My grands and I are making the handprint wreath tonight! I am working on my 3rd batch of limoncello — my sister says it is much better than the purchased liquor, and she has proven it by using up my first two batches, so I need to get some ready before Christmas! I will try to post about it, but I won’t have all the steps completed for several days, so it will have to wait until then.
What a great and beautiful idea! Can’t wait to give it a try!!
Looking forward to joining in this weekend with Advent fun too!!
Oh Lee Ann, that would be great, looking forward to seeing your festive lovelies!!
Gail, I’m really liking the sound of this!! 🙂 Don’t worry, take your time, we will happily wait!!
I decided that, since it’s so easy and not a craft, it didn’t need a bunch of photos so I’ll go ahead and post it today. You are doing so much, it is making me feel lazy!
Hee Hee, it worked 😉 😉 !!!
