How to frame calendar pictures


If you’ve ever saved an old calendar because you like the pictures, now is the time to get those out and make them useful! Calendar pictures can make inexpensive decorations for your wall. If you don’t have an old calendar lying around, you could try looking for a discounted calendar from a previous year at a store. For my picture, I used an old calendar that I saved and a cheap frame that came with matting at a craft store.

Step 1: 

Choose the picture you want to use from your calendar. Use the matting to center the part of the picture you want to use.


Step 2:

Lightly trace the outside of the matting on the picture. Cut along the lines you traced.


Step 3:

Place the matting back into the frame. Fit the picture into the frame and replace the back of the frame. You’re finished!


How to scent candles with essential oils



Candles not only give off a warm glow, but they can add fragrance to any room. Put those boring unscented candles to good use by adding essential oils.  Scenting an unscented candle can be quick and easy.

As a safety precaution, do not add oils to the candle while the candle is burning.

Step 1: 

Light the candle and allow it to burn until there is a pool of melted wax in the candle.

Step 2:

Blow out the candle and wait for the wick to stop smoking.

Step 3:

Add several drops of your favorite essential oil or a combination of essential oils.

Step 4:

Allow wax to cool.

The next time you light your candle, it will fill the room with beautiful fragrance! This process may need to be repeated as the scent diminishes.
