Make easy, DIY flaxseed heat pads (warming pillows, neck relaxers, etc.) with this video tutorial and download free printable gift tags!
One of my most popular DIY's, flaxseed warming pillows (aka, "neck relaxers," "heating pads," or whatever you call them!) now has it's own how-to video!
It's all done up in AOC fashion with the complete steps, as well as tips and answers to questions I've gotten over the years since first publishing the DIY flaxseed heat pads how-to.
This is one of my all-time favorite handmade gifts and one of the most popular with my friends and family - I still get requests for these wonderful little pillows (even from my 4-year-old niece!).
And to celebrate the "release" of the video, I created a set of free printable gift tags for you to download!
You'll find them at the bottom of this post, making it easy for you to attach the directions along with a little explanation of the benefits of using flaxseed in homemade heating pads.
Now, you all know my goal with most crafts, right?
They've got to be easy, do-able, not take too much time, use materials that are not hard to find, and be inexpensive. Because, let's be honest here, why bother otherwise?
These diy flaxseed heat pads area all this and more since they give back to the recipient every time they use them (and if you want to be on someone's mind, make them one of these and they will think of you every time they warm their toes, neck, or back!).
Since these are so popular (I've had readers even ask if I would sell them some!), I wanted to make sure you had every option available to you so that you could make them yourself, whether you learn best through a written tutorial or by watching the steps in a video.

So, now you have your choice to visit my original tutorial on how (and why!) to make flaxseed warming pillows here or watch the video above to see the steps in action. Or do both!
(Please overlook my hesitation when talking about the flax seeds, I really do think they're the best - that's what happens when I can't remember what I wanted to say. Now you know how much I love you - these videos aren't the easiest things for me to make, ha!)
