Homemade Extract Ornaments!! Such a cute and unique Christmas gift with homemade all natural extracts!  The little jars look like ornaments with ribbons attached

I always love to make handmade gifts to give for Christmas.  For the last 3 years I have been making homemade ornaments that are filled with goodies like Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments, Dip Mix Ornaments, Gingerbread M&M Cookie Mix Ornaments  and Flavored Milk Mix Ornaments.  This year I had the idea for Homemade Extract Ornaments because I love making my own extracts and found these cute little bottles from Hobby Lobby I knew would be perfect to use!  Extracts are surprisingly easy to make with great results.  You can make so many fun extracts and the ones I included here are just a few of the many you can make.  I picked Vanilla, Lemon, Blackberry, Mint and Orange for my Homemade Extract Ornaments this year!

Make your own extracts and gift them in little jars that look like ornaments for Christmas gifts!  So easy and something that is unique and useful!

What fun flavored extracts can you think to make?  I have seen several nut varieties like almond that would be great too.  My fave of all the extracts though is vanilla because I use it for everything.  I recently made two kinds of Vanilla Extracts using Madagascar Vanilla Beans and Tahitian Vanilla Beans.  You can see my How to Make Vanilla Extract Post for the instructions!

How to Make Vanilla Extract

Homemade Extract Ornaments! {Easy Christmas Gift}


  • For the Lemon Extract use 1 cup Vodka to the peel of 3 Organic lemons I use a vegetable peeler, without the white pith
  • For the Orange Extract use 1 Cup of Vodka and the peel of 2 Organic Oranges I use a vegetable peeler, without the white pith
  • For the Blackberry Extract use 8 oz. Organic Blackberries and 1 cup of Vodka
  • For the Mint use around 10 Organic mint leaves and 1 cup of Vodka


  1. Grab a mason jar or similar glass jar that has a tight lid and mix the vodka and whatever flavor you want in it. Shake and store in a cool, dark and dry place for at least 3 weeks and shake everyday for the best results. Strain and use for all your cooking needs or use smaller bottles to make gifts.

If you do not have a Hobby Lobby which is where I found my jars then these jars from Amazon (affiliate link) look like they would be cute too.  They even have a flat side for a label if you want to add one!

I love your ideas. Especially the mixes and dips in a jar. Is there a way to say wash the containers before use like the little Christmas light bulbs or Christmas balls? Just curious what or how you do it. Thanks you
