Maybe this will give you some holiday decorating inspiration or the very least entertain you! So take a look below to join me as I decorate my home!
So my Tree is a fake tree that is pre lit we got it last year during black friday.. We live in a apartment so Its hard to use real christmas trees but this will do for now..
Let me tell you Baby Hyrum was so excited when I put up the christmas tree!
So I have on my tv stand I thought I would so something very simple My husband put some christmas lights around the bottom of it and I just added some candy christmas trees & A nativity little gift I had received last year..
So For my Kitchen I got a table runner (From dollar store) and decided to make decorations to go on top… I made candles & these super cute candy/bell holder for christmas..
I also put a christmas angel that i received last year as a gift and a christmas candle on my stove , as well as my santa cookie jar!
I don’t have a chimney but I decided to put my stocking up next to my candle decor in my living room wall.. I just hung them up with some clear hooks that you tape onto the wall…
So I usually Film my videos in my room , so I thought it appropriate to decorate that room as well.. On my rocking chair I added a stuffed santa clause I thought was super cute!
Then In my video area of the room I hung up some christmas ornaments , bells & I spread candy all around between my candles…
I had a christmas hat that I used to decorate with .. I also Put some Gigantic candy cane sticks in among my dead wedding flowers !
I also Had a christmas monkey and some left over candy so I put it in my little jewelry tray I made , I put the monkey in this ho ho ho stocking and sat it right on top!
And thats it for my christmas decorating! I do want to get some santa clause chair covers that I saw last year.. So If I get more decorations Ill be sure to let you guys know! I hoped you liked my fun Vlog … Whats your favorite part of christmas? I really hope you are having a good wed! TIll next time!
So I finally did my DIY Crisco Candles! They are so easy to make , they burn longer than regular candles & they take no time at all! So hopefully you are as excited as I am! So lets just get right to it!
Crisco 48 oz ( Whole thing makes 4 Big Candles & 2 Baby Candles)
Crayon or eyeshadow (to color your candles )
Candle Wick (amazon 50wicksfor 9.00)
Hot Glue Gun
So lets get straight to Business….
Put Some Crisco in a Beaker ( I did four cups at a time which made maybe one candle )
Boil water. Heat the Crisco up until it is completely melted. Stir Occasionally. (I used the double boiler method)(If you are using crayons to color the candles you can add them and let them melt with crisco)
When Completely Melted let Cool For 10-15 Min.
Get your Hot glue Gun & Glue Your Candle Wicks to the bottom of your Candle Jars.
Melt Your crayon and add to mixture or add Eyeshadow for some color
Add fragrance , 5ml or your choice to the mixture.
Fill up the candles (you can use sticks to keep Wicks straight or you can just tug upwards while you fill the candles)
Let Them Dry at room temperature for 5 Hrs or refrigerate for 35 Min (even when completely dry it still will be kinda soft)
Last Just Trim Your Wicks To the Desired Length!
And Thats It , You will have some great smelling, cute ,easy to make Crisco Candles!
Hopefully You enjoyed this easy to make candle recipe! So Whats your favorite Fragrance Oil? I love the Hawaiian Breeze One fromWalmart! Till Next time!

Happy halloween! I love decorating for halloween; but sometimes it can be expensive! They I realized how many mason jars I had lying around, I keep all my jam jars, spagetti sauce jars & wash them out and store them. Now here is a simple Halloween DIY to help you use up all those mason jars you have lying around! You can even Use Baby Food Jars to make Baby Pumpkins!
All You Need:
Mason Jars Or Baby food jars, jars of your choice
Paint (clack and orange for pumpkin, green for frankenstein.. You can do whatever you would like)
Glitter (If you so choose..)
Newspaper (to paint on)
Foam stickers (You can get at your local $1 Store)
Fake candle or real candle…
Glue, Hot glue or krazy Glue (to glue candle to the bottom of jar)
1st: Soak your jar in hot water & soap for 5 min to remove any paper stickers (I know those can be a real pain to take off)
2nd: You can put some paint into you mason jar & Flip it upside down and let it drain
*If paints to thick add some water to help it run a lot faster, You only need a dime size drop of paint in there….
or you can just grab your brush and paint the inside yourself…
Its alot faster to paint the inside with a brush, but its your choice…
3rd: Set it out to dry
4th : You can paint the lids it all depends on the look you want..
5th: Paint the face on your pumpkin….(this is the fun part, get creative, you can do scary pumpkins or goofy ones like mine!)
Last: you want to either glue your candle to the bottom of mason Jar (or else it will fall out when you try to light it) or you can just add a fake candle
And Walla! Easy Halloween Decorations!
You can even get more creative & Create Witches, frankenstein & ghosts..
You can add stickers to the outside of your pumpkins or keep them plain its all up to you! On my Ghost I Added A ghost face in front and then ghost stickers in the back….You can use any glass jars you like, the Ghost is actually made with a recycled Snapple Bottle!
I love halloween because I love the crazy costumes & Decorations are so fun!! Hope You guys liked this EASY DIY… Whats your favorite halloween decoration? What do you do with your mason jars?
