Homemade Vanilla

Ok, so this is the best neighbor/family gift ever! And it's under $10! Win win.

I got the idea from this post over at Whipperberry. She gives a great tutorial and the sites where you can get your beans. The one thing I will say is that the vanilla needs to 'steep', if you will, for at least a month. So if you decide to do this as a last minute gift make sure you tell the recipient to wait to use it.

I also took pointers from her packaging because I thought it was the cutest thing I'd ever seen!
I ended up hand lettering my muslin labels and adhering them using spray adhesive.

Then I finished it with some red and white baker's twine and a 'v' wax seal (I got it off of etsy)

What a fun gift!! What other homemade gifts have you loved giving or receiving?


  1. This is adorable!! I would love if my neighbor made me that :)
