Although sweets and chocolates are often lovely takeaways from your family Christmas Tree it’s not the healthiest of options. This week’s Make It Monday are these fabulous Eco-friendly Bio-Glitter baubles! Great takeaways from your tree for all of the family and a nice and easy make!
What You’ll Need:
- A Pipette per colour (Avaliable Here)
- Some Heatproof Jugs
- A spoon or mixing implement
- Some String & Scissors
Ingredients (Makes 6 Baubles):
It is very important that you use low sweat soap, as your baubles will be hung in the tree next to lights.
- 250g Clear LOW SWEAT Melt & Pour Base
- 50g White LOW SWEAT Melt & Pour Soap
- 6ml of Fragrance (I used Mint Frost)
- Liquid Colour (A few drops until you achieve the colour you desire.)
- Silicone Mould Bauble Mould
- 6 tsps of Bio-Glitter (I used the four new coarse glitters)
Bio-Glitter is an Eco-friendly alternative to plastic glitters. Cosmetic Bio-glitter® is based on biodegradable film made from trees, primarily eucalyptus, sourced from responsibly managed plantations. This is a great step in the way of being Eco-Friendly with your micro-plastics, and our new coarse glitters works brilliantly in these baubles.
How To Make:
Melt your bases together in a microwave using your heatproof jug. Be sure to heat in short 30 second bursts and stir!
Mix in your fragrance thoroughly.
Measure out 50g of your melted bases into a separate heat proof jug.
Once you have separated your 50g, you can mix in your colour and glitter.
Once your colour and glitter and thoroughly mixed through, you can pour into your mould.
Repeat with your other colours and leave your baubles to dry!
Once your soaps are dried remove from your mould. You can now create a hole at the top and thread through your string. Now they are ready to hang on your tree!
