This Honey Strawberry Sugar Scrub is the perfect way to pamper the ladies in your life! It’s almost as if you’re giving them permission to take a few more minutes in the shower before they start their hectic day. They deserve it, right? I promise I won’t tell them how easy it was to make this scrub! ;)
Honey Strawberry Sugar Scrub
- 1/2 cup honey (local, of course!)
- 6 large fresh strawberries
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sea salt
- 1 tbsp jojoba oil (organic, if you can)
- 1 tsp vitamin E (optional but will help preserve the strawberries)
1. Mix the sugar and salt together
2. Mix the honey with the oils. Pour into sugar/salt mixture and mix thoroughly. If you don’t want your scrub to separate as it sits, you can heat it up on the stove on low until the sugar and salt dissolves into the honey.
3. Mash up the strawberries into a pulp and add to scrub. Pour into a mason jar, add the cute T&T free printable label, wrap up it up in cute packaging (stop by Mod Podge Rocks where I’m a guest poster today for instructions on making your own V-Day Cookie Gift Tag!) and give it to someone you love! Don’t forget to let the recipient know that there are fresh strawberries in the scrub (yum!) and should be used promptly, within a week or so.
The good thing about being married to a craft junkie is that you get all kinds of handmade things made for you. The bad thing about being married to a craft junkie is that you get all kinds of handmade things made for you!
Like it or not, I made this print for my husband’s Valentine’s Day gift. We’re not super into the holiday or anything but it’s hard not to get swept up in the pink and red loveliness of V-Day. Especially when you’re a Pinterest addict! (Check out my Valentine’s Day board on Pinterest…you’ll see what I mean.)
I sketched this print pretty casually one night so I must warn you, it’s by no means perfect (the offset arrows bug me every time I look at them!) but I thought a few of you might enjoy printing it out. First, I printed the image out on textured greeting card paper (which was the closest thing I had to watercolor paper) and then used your basic (cheap) watercolor set to add color. I kinda like how it looks just black and white but once you start playing around with color combinations, I dare you to try and stop!
In fact, painting this print was so addictive, I made waaaay too many and will be giving them away on my Facebook page as a “Thank You” giveaway in celebration of reaching 500 likes. Jump on over to Facebook if you’d like in on the fun!
