Garland has become something we can use all year round. From birthday banners to wedding flair, it’s a great way to add a creative element to your home and event decor!

For this DIY we are stringing together a winter tree garland that you can leave up the entire season.

White with gold accents create a neutral, yet inviting color scheme that will pair well with your existing holiday decorations. It’s all about creating pieces you can use and reuse, time and time again!

You will need:

White and Gold acrylic paint

Twine

Thick cardboard or craft wood (You can find this at most craft stores)

Gold Glitter

 

Step One: Cut your cardboard or craft wood into 10 trees. Here is a stencil you can print: Free Tree Stencil

Step Two: Cut a slit up the bottom of five trees and a slit down the top of five trees.

For the five trees that have the slit on the top, punch two holes, this is where you will feed in your twine later.

Step Three: Paint your trees white

Step Four: Let it dry

Step Five: Brush your gold paint across each tree in various spots, there’s no wrong way to do this, so have fun!

Step Six: Add glitter (we love lots of glitter!)

Step Seven: Feed your twine & hang it up!

We’ve teamed up with California Country Gal to bring you a delicious holiday table favorite! Her company specializes in starch free, grain free bread mixes, and other auto-immune friendly treats.

Check out her website here: California Country Gal

I always make a ton of cranberry sauce for the holidays because it keeps well, takes minutes to make and is so easy to do there’s just no reason to buy canned.  BUT when I’m a lazy gal, opening a can works here too.  The raw (enzyme rich!) ingredients in this salad make it delightfully refreshing and even better the next day for breakfast.

CHIA CRANBERRY SALAD

Serves 10-12

INGREDIENTS

Sweetener to equal 1 cup sugar.  I used 1 cup erythritol

1 1/2 tablespoon organic gelatin or agar powder

1 cup organic cherry juice

1 thin skinned organic orange

2 cups fresh organic cranberries

1 1/2 cup organic whole cranberry sauce (homemade preferably)

1 cup organic sour cream

2-4 tablespoons port wine (optional)

1/2 cup diced organic celery

1/2 cup chopped organic walnuts

2 tablespoons Mamma Chia organic chia seeds

2/3 teaspoon organic cinnamon

½ teaspoon stevia or Pure Monk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Line a jello mold or large bowl with plastic wrap or coat with mild tasting oil or cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, stir together the erythritol and gelatin.
  3. Slowly stir in the cherry juice. Warm and stir over low heat until dissolved.  Set aside to cool.
  4. Chop and de-seed the orange and put into your blender.
  5. Add half the cranberries to the blender.
  6. When the juice/gelatin mixture is cooled a bit, add to the blender and blend until the orange is in small pieces.
  7. Add the rest of the cranberries and pulse to chop, set aside.
  8. In a large bowl stir together the rest of the ingredients.
  9. Stir in the contents of the blender until well combined.
  10. Pour into the prepared bowl or mold and refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
  11. Unmold and serve with sauce: 1/3 cup sour cream, zest and juice of one orange.

Enjoy!

Homemade gifts are truly the most special, especially ones that seed your skin! Why not spend time this holiday season, crafting your own handmade scrub, with the help of Mamma Chia! Our Cranberry Chia Sugar Scrub is the perfect gift to share with co-workers, teachers, neighbors, and family! Simple and easy to make, we promise this will be a go-to for all occasions.

Oh, and don’t forget to make a jar for yourself!

Cranberry Chia Sugar Scrub

Need Need Need!

  • 1 cup Organic Granulated White Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil or Olive Oil
  • 1 oz of Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds
  • 12 ml Organic Cranberry Seed Essential Oil. You can order it here ( if you want to make other scents we recommend lavender or mandarin
  • Mason jars or Bail jars
  • For color: We used strawberry gelatin mix but food coloring, hibiscus powder, or any sort of natural tint used in baking will work

Get to it!

TIP: If using coconut oil make sure to melt on the stove top or in the microwave.

Cranberry Chia Sugar Scrub

The sugar should be wet but not soupy. If too much coconut oil is used, the mixture will solidify once the coconut oil returns to room temperature.

Cranberry Chia Sugar Scrub

TIP: If you are using olive oil skip the first two steps.

Cranberry Chia Sugar Scrub
Combine sugar and oil, mix it up well, and divide into separate bowls. Add coloring and essential oil.

We love snow! But here in sunny San Diego, we don’t get to see a lot of it, so we need to be creative and bring the snow to the sand. We thought that a fun way to upcycle our Mamma Chia bottles, and add some snow to our holiday season, would be to make homemade snowglobes! A festive and simple DIY that everyone will enjoy creating together. Let it Snowglobe!!

Let It Snowglobe

Materials:

Recycled glass bottles or mason jars (We used a Mamma Chia bottle of course!)

Faux flowers, garland, ornaments, and all sorts of holiday flair!

Gold glitter

Fake snow confetti

Hot glue

Liquid glycerin

Distilled water

Let It Snowglobe

Glue the ornamentation to the inside of the jar lid

Tip: Leave enough room on the edge of the lid to make sure the lid will close securely around the entire jar

Let It Snowglobe

Add 2-3 pinches of glitter and snow to the jar

Tip: Less is more when adding the snow

Fill the jar with water, leaving a 1 1/2″ space at the top for displacement

Add 1-3 tablespoons of glycerin, depending on the size of your jar

Let It Snowglobe
Tip: Glycerin can be found in the cake supply or soap making aisle at craft stores

Insert the finished lid into the jar, sealing with the ring band

You’re done! Shake up your globe, and watch it snow!

Don’t forget to tag yours: #Letitsnowglobe #MammaChia

Tip: This is a great craft for the classroom, at home with the kids, or your holiday party!

You can skip the water and glycerin for a “less mess” option.
