Wildcrafting Wednesday ~ Christmas Craft edition

Hello, again!  Can you believe it's December already!?  With Christmas just around the corner, we thought we'd focus this week's gathering of wildcrafting ideas on projects for Christmas gift giving!  Do you have an herbal/natural craft or gift idea you'd like to share with us and all our readers?

Join Kathy @ Mind, Body and Soul , Laurie @ Common Sense Homesteading and me, The Woodwife, as we host the Christmas gift edition of Wildcrafting Wednesday!
While traditional wildcrafting refers to gathering herbs and plants in the wild to use for food and medicine, this is a Blog Hop for gathering your favorite old time, traditional herbal posts, home remedies and crafting ideas. It’s a place to gather information on ways to incorporate herbs and old fashioned wisdom in our day-to-day life. It is anything and everything herbal – from crafts to cleaning to tinctures to cooking – it's remedies and natural cures made at home from natural ingredients – it's self-sufficient living and back-to-basics tips to make and preserve food, save money and resources – if it involves herbs or traditional methods of homemaking, home healing or other traditional skills then we want to read about it!
You see, it's kinda like stepping out into the "wilds" of cyberspace to gather ideas that make our homemaking skills or "craft" more healthy, more resourceful...more sustainable. Wildcraft!

Please join us today as we gather ideas for crafting homemade gifts just in time for Christmas!

Guidelines for Participation:

1. Please link up your crafting blog post using the Linky widget below. If you are posting a gift giving recipe, only real food ingredients are permitted. This means no processed or prepackaged foods!

2. Please link the URL of your actual blog post and not your blogs home page. That allows future readers who find this week's link-up to go directly to the post they want to read.

3. Please place a link back to this post. That way your readers can benefit from all the other crafty ideas too. This also helps out the other participants who are hoping to get more traffic to their blogs. If you’re new to blogging here’s what you do: Copy the URL of Wildcrafting Wednesday from your browser address bar. Then edit your post by adding something like, “This post was shared on Wildcrafting Wednesday at The Woodwife's Journal” at the end of your post. Then highlight “Wildcrafting Wednesday at The Woodwife's Journal”, click the “link” button on your blogging tool bar, and paste the URL into that line. That’s it!

4. Please only link posts that fit the carnival description. (Remember we're focusing on ideas for Christmas gift giving this week.)  Old and archived posts are welcome as long as you post a link back as described above. Please don’t link to giveaways or promotions for affiliates or sponsors. That keeps our links valuable in the future since a link to a giveaway three months old isn’t going to be worth browsing in three months time, but a link to an herbal tip will be.

5. Please leave a comment.  When you link up, I don't get a notification so to help me out by leaving a comment below so I don't miss your post. Thank you!

6. Don’t have a blog? We still want to hear from you! Please leave your herbal tip, recipe, home remedy or craft idea in the comments.

7. And bloggers, please check out the other posts and leave a comment for them too. I know that we would all love to hear from each other.

Happy Christmas crafting!

Much herbal love,


  1. Hi Sharon,
    It's Wednesday again! My daughter as you know already loves helping me making things. She is making a refreshing and uplifting liquid soap in this post that we used for our gift packages.
    This Friday I'm holding a class for a bunch of ladies and we will make lots of body bars, lip balm, soaps etc..Hopefully I get some good pictures for a post ..

    Thanks for hosting and have a good week!

  2. If I can overcome some technical difficulties in posting, I hope to add an easy & quick crocheted slipper pattern link with pictures of a pair I made from yarn from an old sweater.

    Lots of great ideas here, thanks!

  3. Hi Sharon, I added my post with lots of cool herbal recipes for busy folks.Thanks for doing this roundup. Can't wait to check out the other blogs and recipes!

  4. I won't be able to thank you fully for the articles on your web-site. I know you'd put a lot of time and energy into all of them and hope you know how much I appreciate it. I hope I could do the same for someone else sometime.


Thanks for visiting The Journal! I love hearing from you!
