BLOGMAS Day 14 // DIY Festive Tree Decoration

it’s the 14th of December, what? I can’t believe how fast this countdown to Christmas is going, and that in 10 days it’ll be Christmas eve!

So for my final Christmas decor-themed post, I thought I’d show you guys a really quick and super easy DIY that I found online, that you can display in any room of your choice! IMG_0019This DIY is so quick and simple, that anybody could give it a go and it’ll look cool. All you need is some paper/card, decorative wire, and a branch!

Simply start out by cutting different sized stars out of your paper/card, and poke the wire through one of the points of the stars. I used Christmas decor wire, which had these tiny silver stars attached, so that each individual star had its own smaller silver star keeping it on the branch.

Then all you have to do is wrap the wire around a place on the branch, so that your stars hangs nicely.IMG_0023And that is all you have to do! I’ve obviously got my fairy lights on this side of the room, so the branch looks even more festive placed just in front of them. I really enjoyed making this, as it’s so simple but it looks really cute in your room!


 

Let me know if you’re going to give this DIY a go, or if you’ve taken inspiration from any other Christmas-themed DIYs, I’d love to see what you’ve made for the festive season!

DIY Lush-Inspired Sugar Lip Scrub

Fotor0906220935Lately I’ve really been looking for a good and affordable lip scrub. But I quickly discovered how quick and easy it is to make one yourself, so I thought I’d share this DIY with you guys! It’s super quick, and you’re almost 100% guaranteed to have all of these ingredients in your house!

DIY Lush Sugar Lip ScrubYou will need:

A small bowl or container to mix in

Olive Oil

Sugar

Honey

Vanilla Essence (Optional)

DSCN2179Start out by covering the bottom of your container or bowl with the olive oil, then obviously the sugar is the exfoliant, so you’ll need to add this next. The honey next, as that just helps all of the ingredients sticking together. Finally the vanilla essence, or any other flavouring of your choice.

You should mix everything together until it is all stuck together, you’ll know you’re done mixing when the scrub is easily transferable in its entirety to another container.

And it’s as simple as that! I think the best thing about this lip scrub is that you can choose to make as much as you want, and for it to taste like whatever you want!

After applying to your lips, I’d recommend using a chapstick or lip butter.
