It’s Day 6 of my 12 Days of DIY Gift Ideas, and today’s is another favorite! It’s handmade sugar scrub in adorable packaging, that will make your gift recipients feel special and pampered! Let’s talk about how to make it.
DIY Sugar Scrub Video Tutorial
Watch along here and I’ll share all about creating the sugar scrub and also how to make the cute strawberry tag.
DIY Sugar Scrub
Below you can see the basic recipe I used to make my sugar scrub. It includes:
1/3 cup to 2/3 cup coconut oil, depending on your preferred consistency
2 cups white sugar
Dried, crushed flower petals
Crushed, dehydrated fruit
Heat the coconut oil to soften, but not melt it. Then mix in the sugar and other desired ingredients by hand. I found it easiest to mix and knead it with my bare hands.
I wanted to make my scrub with strawberry scent, but I didn’t have any strawberry oil. I decided to use a combination of citrus oils. I found recipes that use crushed, dehydrated strawberries, and I want to try that next time!
Creating Your Sugar Scrub Tag
To create the adorable tag for this set, I used the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and punch, shown in the photo below. I also used a fun technique with my Stamparatus to make the stamping and punching go a little faster. Watch along with the video for more details.
Mini Jam Jars Ideas
There are so many ways to use the mini jam jars. Here are two more – for popcorn/party favors and peach rings!
I’ve shared this technique before, but if you want details on how to stamp and punch easily using multi-piece builder punches, watch the video I shared above or you can learn more here as well.
