Homemade Aluminum-Free Deodorant
Since showering 5 times a day isn’t practical for most, the rest of us rely on underarm deodorant to keep us feeling fresh and clean…and frankly, not smelly. Well, who would have guessed that you can make your own deodorant with only THREE ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry! Here’s a quick and effective how-to, and best of all, its aluminum free!
DIY Calming Snow Globe
This is essentially a Glitter Jar, but with a holiday twist. I chose a plastic rounded jar from the dollar store, and hot glued some Christmas miniatures to the lid before following the normal instructions with white/silver glitter (snow). A more detailed tutorial can be found here.
DIY: TEMPORARY TATTOOS
If you’ve always had an idea of a tattoo in your head that you’re not sure if you want or not, or you’re just bored on the holidays, you might want to try out this DIY and make our own temporary tattoo.
What You Need:
Eyeliner (liquid pen is easiest, preferably waterproof and/or smudgeproof)
3B, 4B, 5B or 6B pencil
Baking or tracing paper
Fluffy make-up brush
Spray-on bandage (waterproof)
Firstly, you’ll need to find an image you want to tattoo (or come up with one) and decide where you want to put it. I’m going to draw the design on the new Endless Drain Major Leagues t-shirts and put it on my left wrist.
You’ll then want to print out the image and trace it (or draw it) onto your baking paper with your pencil.
Place the tracing where you want it, then apply a wet cloth on top and remove after approximately 20 seconds.
Draw along the tracing with your eyeliner.
Sprinkle talcum powder on your design and spread it with the make-up brush.
Spray on top the design with the spray-on bandage and wait for it to dry completely.
Now your tattoo is waterproof and should last for about 3 days. Try not to rub or wash the tattoo too much and it should last longer. Enjoy tattooing.
