She also reminded any budding crafters to add a sealant when using spray paint to prevent any peeling disasters.

She then poured in brand new soap and tied the bottles up with string. Showing off her finished project, displayed on a cute tray ready for Christmas gifting, Stacey wrote: "I can't wait to give them to mum."
