3 of the Easiest DIY Projects

One of the most enjoyable things about having great ingredients like raw African Shea butter on hand during the holidays is that you get to do DIY things! They’re a great activity for kids, friends or simply on your own for a little me-time, and given as a gift they always feel special. And since the DIY phenomenon has become increasingly popular, it can feel a little bit overwhelming when faced with the decision of which project to go for.
