This past weekend, I finally had a chance to try making a DIY Sugar Scrub (I originally had this idea back in August after checking the price in Bath & Body Works — $16 for $13 oz. )
In the spirit of Pinterest, savings, and generally wanting to be crafty, I decided to make the Sugar Scrub into a DIY gift.
I started with a recipe that I found through another blog, plastic Christmas Containers from the Dollar Tree and the following ingredients that were easily found at Target:
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 and 1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
Step 2: Measure 1/2 cup of coconut oil and melt it in the microwave for 20 seconds
Step 4: stir in 1 tablespoon peppermint extract and 1 drop of green food coloring.
(I put the peppermint extract and food coloring drop in a measuring cup together and slowly poured it into the bowl to make sure I would get the light green mint color instead of a darker green)
—the original amount of this recipe was only enough for 1 and 1/2 of the containers shown below, you should adjust the quantity based on the size/ number of containers you have
What do you think about DIY gifts? Have you given or received them?
