Step 1: Prepare your aroma beads. The amount that you need will depend on the size of your ornament. We used about 3 ounces of the beads to fill one medium sized ornament. So, to create ½ cup of beads place them in a ziplock bag. To this bag, add ⅛ cup of the Christmas Wreath Fragrance Oil and 3 drops of the red liquid candle dye.
Step 2: Close the bag. Then, shake it until everything is blended together. Allow the beads to soak up the fragrance oil overnight.
Step 3: For this step, you will need one of your clear ornaments. Fill your ornament with the aroma beads using a funnel. Place the top back on the ornament and set it aside, for now.
Step 4: Prior to starting you may want to place a mat in your work area to keep your work area clean. If you do not have a silicone mat, you can use a piece of wax paper or newspaper. Prepare your glue. Add about two ounces of the glue to a small glass bowl. Then, use a pipette to add about 2-4 ml of the Christmas Wreath Fragrance Oil. Stir to blend the glue.
Step 5: At this time, prepare your Epsom salt. In a small bowl, mix about ¼ cup of the Epsom salt and about ¼ tsp of the diamond dust mica. Stir.
Step 6: Next, you will need two of the ornaments. Spread a thin layer glue on the first ornament. Then, cover it with a thin layer of the Epsom salt mixture. Repeat this process for your second ornament. Allow the ornament to dry. If needed, repeat this process once your first layer has dried to fill in any spots not covered in the first coat.
Step 7: Once you have completed your ornaments, place a ribbon on each one. We placed our center ornament in the center and added a ribbon that was about 5 inches long. Then, place a shorter, about 3 inches in length, to each of the Epsom salt ornaments.
Step 8: Now, prepare your picture frame. Remove the glass and the back of the frame.
Step 9: Place the picture frame in front of you face down. Use a hot glue gun to adhere the ribbon to the frame. Place the aroma bead ornament to the center of the frame. Then, add one of Epsom salt ornaments on each side of the aroma bead ornament. Pay attention to the spacing to ensure that they are evenly spaced.
Step 10: Once your hot glue has setup, turn your picture frame over. Then, at the top center of the picture frame, add a bow made out of ribbon. Adhere the ribbon using hot glue.
