Present Ideas: Do It In Glass Recipe Tips

We previously shared the Christmas in a bottle concept and now we bring you some more of the presents in glass concepts that were utilized in the Consol Glass Christmas e-guide shoot. The task was taken on by myself, Liezel from Match Set Really like and Lauren from Lauren Kim Photography.

Thought one: Brown sugar + Orange body Scrub
Lauren came up with the notion of employing one particular of the bottles for a pampering entire body scrub. She decorated the lid by including a cute tiny bear on that she initial spray painted gold and then covered with glue, dipped in glitter. I LOVED this concept! Lauren also produced the tag for this bottle.

Ingredients for the scrub:

  • 5 Tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
  • Zest of a single orange


  1. Combine all of the substances with each other
  2. If the mixture looks a little dry add some far more coconut oil
  3. Retailer in a bottle

Concept 2:Make-your-own Gluwein
Another one particular of Lauren’s inventive suggestions was to supply a person unique with the dry substances to make their very own gluwein. We decorated the bottle with a Match Set Adore deer head vinyl sticker and once more some tags that Lauren manufactured. We paired the wine with the yummy Christmas Mince Pies she produced recipe right here and it was a ideal match!

Substances for wine:

  • 2 Litres of Red Wine
  • 1 Cup of Orange Juice from fresh oranges
  • one Cup of Sugar (could need much less/far more dependent on how sweet you like it)
  • 4 Cinnamon Sticks
  • Complete Cloves
  • Total Spice


  1. Pour the red wine into a big pot and put it on the stove on a very lower heat. Do not boil the wine.
  2. Minimize the orange into slices. Place about 4 cloves into every single slice of orange and spot them in the wine.
  3. Break the cinnamon sticks in half or thirds and place them in with the wine as well as 5 Total Spice
  4. Include in the orange juice and mix
  5. Stir in the sugar.
  6. Stir on and off for about thirty mins to give the spices time to infuse with the wine and for the magic of winter to occur.
  7. Taste the mixture – if it is not sweet ample include some far more sugar and stir.
  8. Let it infuse for about thirty minutes.
  9. Serve warm

Concept 3: Chocolate muffin mix
I opted to use my self-created greatest chocolate muffin recipe‘s dry substances and mix them in a layered kind into a bottle. The recipe and How-to guidelines was printed onto a transparency outdated-college and stuck with double sided tape to the side of the bottle. Tip: rather than attempting this on your personal printer at property, take a copy printed on paper to your neighborhood printing retailer and let them photocopy / burn up it onto transparencies for you. Thank you to Liezel from Match Set Love who did the style!

To round off the bottle I added an old drawer knob to the lid. Just to make it seem lovilee!

Idea 4: Nuts about you
A simple something like adding sweets or nuts to a jar can also search lovilee if you include a small some thing to make the jar search rather. there are plenty ideas that contain washi tape, stickers, tags, ribbon and even badges. These badges can be identified in Lauren’s on-line keep right here.
