Maple sugaring is a fun activity for families. It's also a time-consuming process, but well worth the effort. There's no comparing real maple syrup with imitation syrup. Our Custom Maple Syrup Labels are the perfect gift for home-based maple sugarers. All the hard work that went into collecting sap and making syrup should be rewarded with custom syrup labels. These vintage style Maple Syrup labels are customized with YOUR name. Maple Syrup labels can also have the date pre-printed or left blank. Your family and friends will love getting your maple syrup as a gift, so now you can show off your bottles in style!

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas! Yeah, you know it's Christmas time when a cloud of cinnamon scent hits you in the face as you stroll into the craft store. We created the perfect DIY Christmas Ornament tutorial for crafty canners. This scented glue dough recipe combines the traditional holiday scent and mason jar rings. It's a great way to use rusty canning rings you may have laying around. And it's also a perfect craft to make with kids. Just mix the dough and mold it around canning rings to create scented wreath ornaments. These scented Christmas ornaments make great holiday gifts. Decorate your Christmas tree or garland with these festive-scented ornaments too.
- Regular or wide mouth canning jar rings
- 2 tablespoons white school glue
- 1 cup of ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon of nutmeg
- 3/4 cup applesauce
- Whole cloves
MAKE THE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
- Mix cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir in applesauce and glue.
- Mix and knead for 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth. If dough is too sticky, add more cinnamon. If dough is too dry, add a little water.
- Mold the dough mixture around the canning rings.
- Insert whole cloves for decoration.
- Place ornaments on a wire rack to dry at room temperature. Turn once a day for even drying. Drying will take several days.
- Once dry, decorate with ribbon or paint some holly berries.
- Recipe makes about 8 ornaments depending on what size canning rings you use.
- PLEASE NOTE: These ornaments are NOT edible. Store finished ornaments in a dry location free of excess humidity and cold.

If you're a gardener, you may have saved some of your seeds throughout the years. Saving seeds will save you money and make you more self sufficient. The practice is also a great way to connect to your community of fellow gardeners when you share the seeds.
If you’re new to saving seeds, check out Seed Savers Exchange. They have a wealth of knowledge on the best practices and techniques to get started. You can also join their Exchange to swap seeds with other members. Once you start saving seed, you’ll appreciate the tradition of handing down and trading seed varieties.
We designed three FREE Printable Seed Saver Packets for our gardening friends. Our free seed saver packs are great for saving seeds from your garden. Store seeds for yourself or use them for gift-giving seeds to your friends. Just print, cut, fold, and glue the seed packets to store your vegetable, fruit, or flower seeds. We hope you enjoy using these free packets. And PLEASE, share these with your fellow gardeners and seed savers.
