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 an easy, inexpensive gift? I designed this “Stressed, Blessed, and Christmas Obsessed” file in Adobe Illustrator to fit on them, but there are many 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? What about tote bags? The options are endless!
Use in Cricut Design Space
Are you planning on making this on your Cricut cutting machine? I’ve got a shortcut for you! I’ve also uploaded this file into Design Space with a quick tutorial on using it over there. Don’t forget to like the project and follow me on Design Space for more files!
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 Maker 3
- Embellishments (optional)
Step 1. Cut the free file, weed, and use transfer tape to assemble. I’m pretty partial to my Cricut machines, but you’re welcome to use a Brother or Silhouette machines too!
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 essential oils. You may want to add more depending on how fragrant you want the salts. I tried 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 the ornament with bath salts.
Step 4. You can give the ornaments as is or add a few extra embellishments to make it more festive. I used hot glue to add some 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 cute to look at and will 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!
