DIY Tutorial: Vanilla Extract

5 Oct

from Style Me Pretty

Kathleen over at Twig & Thistle posted this tutorial on Style Me Pretty for making your own vanilla extract as gifts. After being scared to death by the canning manuals I read, I think this may be more my speed. Check out the link, she posted where you can buy what she used. Her lovely instructions are below.

Materials Needed
Small Glass Jars
#4 Size Corks
Mini Gingham Ribbon
Sticker Paper
X-acto Knife
Homemade Vanilla

Step 1: Download the Homemade Vanilla Extract recipe here and follow the directions on how to make it.

Step 2: Download Vanilla Labels here and print onto white sticker paper. Trim out each label. To get nice circles, take your time and use an x-acto knife and self-healing cutting mat – your fingers and table with thank you!

Step 3: Cut ribbon to 8″ long and wrap around the neck of the bottle crossing in the center. Secure ribbon with a small piece of tape and then apply Vanilla label to the center of the bottle. Finish it off by snipping the ends of ribbon to a point.

Step 4: Once Vanilla is prepared and ready, fill the jars with vanilla using a funnel and cap with a cork. Vilolá! a delightful homemade favor for your guests!
