I created 12 DIY scrubs for Christmas gifts this year (teachers, bus driver, neighbors, Mom, etc)… I found the recipe on Pinterest and quickly mixed up the scrubs and added them to these 1/2pt wide mouthed mason jars I got on Amazon.
I created the toppers by die cutting a circle shape from this die set that fit the lid with some watercolored cardstock. Then I sprayed the circle die cuts with water and added a few spritzes of Color Bursts (exact colors linked below).
The last thing I did was stamp a bunch of these adorable elves from the Elf’d stamp set, colored them in with Copics and added some clear Wink of Stella over the top, and then die cut them with the coordinating die. I wanted these babies to stick so I used some Scor-tape/Be Creative to secure the elves…
- A little less than ½ cup coconut oil
- 1½ – 2 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon peppermint extract
- 1 drop green food coloring
I added the coconut oil (use less if you want the scrub to be less oily) to a bowl and mashed it around with a spoon until it was soft. Then I added the sugar.. I started with 1 1/2 cups and added a bit more until I was satisfied with the texture. Then I added a TB of peppermint extra and one drop of green food coloring. Mixed it all up and voila! Minty green sugar scrub!
