Christmas is just around the corner and even though I love the season, I’ll be the first to acknowledge that I may get a bit irritable because of all the stress. From school performances to buying gifts to Christmas morning brunch…I’m totally going to need these Calming Christmas Bath Salts before the season is over!

How cute are these little mason jar ornaments and aren’t they perfect for filling with bath salts for a easy, inexpensive gift? I designed this “Stressed, Blessed, and Christmas Obsessed” file to fit on them but there are tons of great ways to use the cut file (for personal projects only, please!) I’m totally planning on making a t-shirt with it! Or maybe an apron? Or some wall decor? The options are endless!

Calming Christmas Bath Salts
- Fillable Clear Mason Jar Ornaments
- Sea Salt
- Epsom Salt
- Essential Oils (you can blend your own or buy a pre-mixed Calming Blend)
- Vinyl (Series 51 is my absolute favorite)
- Free “Stressed, Blessed, and Christmas Obsessed” File
- Cricut Cutting Machine
- Embellishments (optional)
Step 1. Cut the free file, weed, and use transfer tape to assemble as one.
Step 2. Transfer to the mason jar ornament and press to secure.
Step 3. Mix equal portions of sea and epsom salt. Blend in 20 drops of essentials oils. Depending on how fragrant you want the salts, you may want to add more. I wanted to keep the salts white so that the lettering on the ornament would “pop” but you can add bath-safe coloring dye if you’d like! Fill ornament with bath salts.
Step 4. You can either give the ornaments as is or add a few extra embellishments to make it a bit more festive. I used hot glue to add a couple of holly leaves and a red bell for the finishing touches! (NOTE: The ornament will be kinda heavy when filled with bath salts so I highly suggest adding some hot glue to the wire hook on top to secure it more)
Step 5. After the hot glue has hardened completely, tie a ribbon to the top and you’re done!
I love that these ornaments are not only cute to look at but will totally be helpful during the stressful holiday season. I don’t know about you guys but a nice long hot soak does wonders for this frazzled mama! Let me know if you have any secrets to maintaining sanity in the coming months. I could totally use them!
