life of a homeschooling pinch penny at xmasBy mommymonster | December 11, 2009
its that time again, and looking at the tiny mound of silver in the savings jar, the trip to the mall is forgone.
now to dress it up a little, remember those old candle ends laying around? get a small cat food can, and put all the white wax you can find in it, add a few red crayons, and put in a small saucepan with water. once the wax is liquid, turn the capped jars over and dip the caps to the necks, while it cools, take some ribbon to wind around the neck and tie your gift label on. put in basket with some shredded tissue, and fruit and a sprinkle of glitter.
at any produce section you can find delicious bundles of herbs, we grow our own. a stem each of sage, thyme, rosemary, basil and oregano is placed root first in each bottle forming a kind of mini garden, fill the bottles with olive oil. cap with a cork and put in a little basket with a bag of your favorite whole grain pasta and a chunk of good mozzarella.
I have noticed that some of my giftees have asked that add garlic to the oil. its yummy.
