St. Patrick’s Day Door Hanger DIY

• Head over to Michaels, Joann or Hobby Lobby for the pieces of this project. The beard and shamrocks were found in-store.

• You can always cut out your own beard and your own shamrocks from cardstock allowing for better variation! Use cookie cutters for the shamrock templates if you decide to cut your own!

• The shamrocks are stacked on top of one another with pipe-cleaners in between to allow you to adhere the shamrocks to the door hanger and have all the shamrock seen. If you try and attach the shamrocks directly to the ruler, hat, beard, etc., most of the shamrock will be hidden by the attachment.

• This is a fast project, and yes, it is all done on the back of a ruler!

Fresh Pine DIY Candle Directions:

• Place your candlewick in a jar allowing the wick to drop to the bottom.

• Begin by heating the soy wax flakes on low heat right on your stove top. It is best to use a nonstick pot to help avoid burning and sticking.
• Continue to stir the soy candle flakes as they slowly melt. Be sure to keep the liquid moving so it does not stick or clump.
• Add in 10 drops Pine Essential Oil OR Wintergreen Essential Oil. You may use more or less essential oils if you like.
• If you would like to color your candle can now tint the soy flakes with a crayon (any color is fine, green was used in this tutorial) or candle dye. It is vital that you DO NOT use food coloring as it will not distribute in the mixture, it will clump and not mix.

• Remove the mixture from the stove and slowly (and carefully!) pour it into the jar.
• Immediately re-center the candlewick if needed.
• Store the candle in a cool place until it sets. Do not touch it while it is setting. Let it sit for a full 3-4 hours before moving.
• Once the mixture has hardened, remove the pencil and you can snip the candlewick to shorten it.

• Light and enjoy!

Safety tip: never leave a lit candle unattended!

Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor, and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils.
