Hi Everyone!

Jenny Raulli from Bloom Designs back on Lil’ Luna to share an easy and useful homemade gift with you-  homemade vanilla extract and free printable labels. These make the perfect gift for absolutely anyone in your life- neighbors, teachers, hostesses, friends, bakers, really anyone. I can’t think of anything I use more of during the holidays than vanilla extract. I go through bottles of it. Real vanilla extract is SO much better than imitation vanilla.  Do you know how easy it is to make? You just need a pretty bottle, vanilla beans and vodka. It is such a thoughtful gift.

Homemade vanilla extract needs to sit in a dark location for at least 4-6 weeks before using but simply fill in the date your vanilla will be ready on the free printable labels and gift away this holiday season.  The good news is that the vanilla extract never goes bad.

To make you need

  • vanilla beans
  • vodka (you can also use rum or bourbon)

To make

  • Slice vanilla beans down the center length wise
  • Insert 2 beans for a 4 ounce bottle.  The rule is 1 bean per 2 ounces so no worries if you have a bigger bottle
  •  Fill bottle to the top with vodka
  • Cap and label bottles
  • Store in a dark place

    What size labels do we purchase to print these on?
    Also, what size bottle are these? Very cute thank you!

    I certainly had no idea vanilla extract was so easy to make. Where did you get these cute bottles with the cork top. And where do you suggest getting the vanilla beans. I think this is a fabulous idea!
