DIY Soda Can Coasters for Fathers Day!!!



Simply empty out some cans of your choice and rinse them out with water.  Then take some tin snips and very carefully cut off the top and bottom of the can.  This can be a bit tricky.  **But be very careful as these cans are super sharp!!!!    Be sure to save as much of the flat part of the side of the can so that you can get a nice size square for your coasters.  Then cut down the seam of the can.  Most cans will have a definite seam on the side…usually by the ingredient list.


Then take some Silicone and put a good amount on the back of the square.  Then attached them to some simple white tiles that measured 4 by 4 inches.  Home Depot has them in the tile aisle less than 50 cents each .  Flatten and rub the tin square so that it is securely attached.  Wipe any excess Silicone off the top of the tile with a damp warm cloth. 



Then  set a paper towel on the top of it and lay a pile of books on it and let them dry over night!  The next day take  a small paint brush and paint some glossy varnish over the top of it to seal it all off so that the edges dont peel up and to protect the edges from poking or scratching any users of the coasters.







Then simply place some felt pads on the bottom of the coasters to protect your table top from getting scratched!

Make a bath bomb for Mothers Day


Everyone loves to take a bath now and then. And taking one with a Bath bomb can be awesome ...those delightful chunks of good-smelling stuff that explode into colorful fizz in your bathtub....and they can be the perfect gift for your mom this Mothers Day.......heres a simple recipe for you to try


8 oz baking soda
4 oz Epsom salt
4 oz corn starch
4 oz citric acid
Large bowl
Whisk
Biodegradable glitter or dried flower petals (optional)
2.5 tablespoons coconut oil (or any other veggie oil)
About 1 tablespoon water
About 2 teaspoons essential oil (for scent)
4-6 drops of food coloring
Small jar or bowl
12-18 silicone molds

First, mix the dry ingredients (baking soda, Epsom salt, corn starch, and citric acid) together in a large bowl. Use the whisk to make sure the mixture is clump-free. Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate, is a key ingredient in this bathtub explosion: When the high pH powder reacts with a low pH acid, it produces carbon dioxide bubbles.  . If you want, you can add visual decorations like biodegradable glitter into the mix. Just don't use regular-old craft glitter, because it's no good for our friends in the ocean.
Now mix up the wet ingredients (oil, water, essential oil, and food coloring). The easiest way to get this party started is to put them in a jar and shake them up. This is the step where you need to make some important decisions about scent. You can tweak quantity to suit your taste, but you should use about two teaspoons total of essential oil or perfume. Try cinnamon, cocoa, peppermint, or coffee scents for the winter holidays (or a combination of all four to make a mocha-licious bath). Or go with something classic, like a spa-like eucalyptus and lavender mix or a straight-up sugary hit of vanilla extract. The possibilities are truly endless. It's also time to make decisions about color. We recommend sticking to a single hue to avoid accidentally muddying the bath waters. Stick to something like 4-6 drops of food coloring total, but feel free to mix up different pigments.
Slowly add the liquid to the dry mixture. Really slowly. Like a teaspoon at a time. Whisk as you go, and slow down if things start to look fizzy. You should end up with a mixture that just barely clumps together, like damp sand.
Stuff that stuff into your silicone molds, ASAP. You don't want the mix to dry out while it's still in the bowl, which is why you should make sure you have enough molds to make a dozen or more bombs at once. Press the mixture down firmly into your silicone molds of choice.
Let the bath bombs dry. If your mold has a lot of details in it, you might just want to give them a whole day to be safe. Then pop them out.
Throw one into the tub and enjoy the explosive fruits of your labor.
