First, fill a small, heat-resistant measuring cup with soy wax and heat it in the microwave for a minute. Remove from the microwave and stir with a disposable utensil (wooden chopsticks and skewers work very well for this). Continue to heat the wax in increments of one minute until it melts completely.

Then, let the wax cool for a minute, then add 30 drops of the essential oil of your choice. It is important to add it in this step because if you add it before heating the wax, the temperature can cause the aroma to dilute.

After that, pour a thin layer of wax into the bottom of your bowl or bowl. Let the wax cool for a few minutes and, while waiting, trim the wicks.

When the wax has hardened, place the three wicks in the bottom of the bowl, making sure to space them evenly. Let the wax harden a little more before moving on to the next step.

Then, pour the rest of the wax over the first layer. At this point, you may have to melt more wax, depending on the size of your container. Once your container has been filled with wax until about 3/4, let it cool. We want the wax to barely set so that the crystals don’t sink into the bottom of the container.

Once the wax has hardened, start placing the crystals on top of the wax. Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, use your fingers to gently press the crystals deeper into the wax.

If the crystals begin to sink, remove them and allow the wax to cool a little more. If the wax hardens too much before adding the crystals, it may break a little when you push them. Do not worry! Simply take your hairdryer and re-melt the top layer of wax. You could also simply melt a little more wax and pour a thin layer around the crystals if you find it easier.

The last step is to cut the wicks one more time so that they protrude a little from the wax. After the wax has dried completely (this will take a few hours), you are ready to wrap your gift.

We continue with this perfect miniature piñata of Valentine. Following the tutorial, you can make this piñata and surprise your loved one with something sweet.

DIY Valentine’s Day gifts

You don’t need many things to do this mini DIY heart piñata. Here are the supplies.

Heart template (you can draw it or download it for free)
1 sheet of A4 size cardboard
3-4 sheets of tissue paper (the color that you or your loved one likes best)
Masking tape
A glue stick
A thread not very long
A wide variety of goodies such as chocolates, candy, stickers and more

Other supplies:
A pencil
scissors

First, cut out the paper template. Cut 2 hearts and 2 of the small strips. Trace these 4 pieces in the cardboard. And cut the 4 pieces in cardboard.

Next, we will build the sides. Place a flat cardboard heart on your work surface. Form and form the 2 strips in a curvilinear shape and place them on the top and center of the heart. Use the masking tape to glue the strips on the lower heart.

Make sure that when you are recording, your heart shape and cardboard strips are flush along the edges.

Now add more tape to the sides of the heart. Place the tape where you can easily place the second cardboard heart in place. We use small pieces of tape with which it is much easier to work than trying to use 1 long strip of tape!

The bottom of your heart will remain open like this. This place where you are going to fill your heart with all kinds of fun goodies! It is also perfect to break later when you are ready to celebrate and enjoy sweets!

Now, before sealing the bottom, let’s give this DIY heart piñata a little twist of thread. It is perfect if you want to hang it like a real piñata or use it in Valentine’s day decoration.

Cut a length of thread not too long. Twist the thread and tie a knot on one side. The other side will be a loop. Push your loop through the top and center of the heart as in the photo. And use a little more painter’s tape to fix the rope in place.

Fill the heart-shaped pinata with treats! Chocolate, sweets, or because not with another Valentine’s gift, such as a bracelet or a ring, nobody will expect it. To close it, wrap a section of tissue paper around the front, sides, and back of the piñata and stick it with duct tape. You will need to use a section of tissue for the left and right sides of the heart.

Now is the time to decorate the piñata! With the remaining tissue paper, cut the fabric into long strips. Cut fringes leaving the upper third intact. Cut evenly so they look super professional. Make your cuts up and down and space evenly from left to right.
