Dried Orange Slices to Decorate Gifts

These are less so for giving as a firm gift but how cute are they to use when decorating presents? Think brown paper, twine and some greenery and an orange slice. So pretty.

  1. wow, some great DIY ideas and I absolutely love the hot chocolate ornaments! I think I’ll have to make some for my kids this year, they would love it! #KCACOLS

  2. These are some awesome ideas! I love the idea of DIY gifts, especially for my kids to give to their friends and grandparents! That sugar scrub sounds amazing! And the hot chocolate ornaments are adorable! Thanks for sharing! #KCACOLS

  3. I love the idea of making presents to give instead of buying everything. We tend to make chocolatey treats to give the teachers at school at Christmas and they seem to go down well! I’m really tempted to make some of the gingerbread scrub for myself this year, I bet it smells amazing! x #KCACOLS

  4. The sugar scrubs look nice (for me!), and I love both mint and gingerbread so these scents would suite me perfectly. Also, I’d love some red berry rum, but never remember to get started in time (it’s supposed to be best if sat on the shelf for quite a while, I’ve been told… Thanks so much for linking up with #KCACOLS, hope you come back again next time! x
