How to make Granola + X-mas present DIY Jar

X-mas in my mind. I have planned so many times to make granola...almost a year...that means also I'm not the first one who blogs about it. Actually I'm quite late, haha but still I decided to make a suggestion for you. Make a lovely DIY X-mas present for your beloved ones. There aren't anything that one can throw to the trash bin. You can eat the granola, use the glass jar in your kitchen as a storage item and making granola is easy.

There are plenty of choises you can make your granola. I made it of those I've written on the picture. But I added only dried figs after I had baked granola in oven. You are free to choose your favorite berries, and fruits. But be careful that you don't burn your granola :) I did it once because I had too high temperature in oven. You don't want to do it because all those precious almond and other peanuts and seeds aren't cheap and of course I use organic products.

You can decorate your glass jar with handwritten text. I used Illumigraph pen. You can always wipe it off. It's waterbased pigment ink. You can decorate your jars, windows etc. with it.

Illumigraph pen is great tool to make DIY X-mas decoration like Anu Harkki in new Huili magazine did. I actually went to photograph her lovely X-mas present DIY's and you can see all those ideas in the newest Huili magazine. Huili is THE Finnish ecological lifestyle magazine. Only in Finnish but you can always see the pics :)

This week I also took part in Sugar Helsinki blogger X-mas evening. And look what I got! So adorable small X-mas tree. It's a perfect decoration for my workspace. Thinking of decorating it but somehow I like it as it is...small and pure. Will see what I do. It can be planted too but to do that I have to keep it alive through winter. It is sponsored by PEFC Finland.

I will get back to Huili magazine in my next post.

But now I wish you a beautiful weekend my friend!
