  • 12 in Straw wreath
  • Assorted Christmas picks from floral department
  • velvet Bow and hanger

I used a straw wreath for the base of this wreath. And then filled in with lots of assorted Christmas floral picks I picked up from the Craft store. I like to fill into between the picks with extra tree greenery. Add a red velvet ribbon and hang.

Tip : when you trim your fresh tree save the extra pieces and add them to the wreath.

DIY Christmas Candle Wax melts ;

  • Soy wax flakes
  • Silcom wax melt molds
  • Christmas tree candle scents ( 20 drops)
  • glass measuring cup to melt wax
  • Wax warmer to melt finished melts

Measure out soy wax and melt gradually in microwave. Add fragrance to wax and mix. Pour into molds and let harden. After done – pop out of mold. You can melt them in a candle wax holder.

Tip : You can find cut molds in the candy making section of any big box store.

DIY Christmas Room Spray :

  • 4-ounce fine-mist spray bottle
  • 2 ounces distilled water
  • 1.5 ounces Everclear
  • 50 drops  Douglas Fir,
  • 20 drops Juniper Berry
  • 5 drops Clove
  • 5 drops Wild Orange 
    • 1–2 drops Cinnamon (
  • label

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Rinse bottle(s) well with distilled water.
  2. Add your essential oils. I designed this spray to be potent as I find I use less and the scent lingers longer. Feel free to scale down if you prefer a lighter spray.
  3. Add grain alcohol and distilled water. Add Everclear or grain alcohol of choice. Swirl for a few seconds to dissolve the oils, then top with distilled water. Shake well and adjust to your liking, adding more oils for a stronger scent, or more a bit more distilled water for a lighter scent.
  4. Affix the label. With a clean rag or towel, dry the bottle well and attach the label. For easiest placement, place the bottle on a flat, level surface like a table or countertop and align the label parallel to the water line.
