    Love the tin candles! You can do the same thing with cute vintage mugs! I got a pair for a gift once and they were adorable and she scented them like vanilla so it smelled like cupcakes!
    I made a few zipper bags this year. I also like to make ornaments, simple embroidery on felt, stuffed. my fave were little elf faces! so cute. I might try the gold leaf ones next year!
    also infused alcohol is easy to do too!
