Hi, I recently got the chance to guest post over at Free Pretty Things for You. I had a lot of fun playing with some of Keren's vintage graphics… and some Epsom Salt!
I adore Keren's amazing freebies and with Christmas coming up, I thought it would be fun to make a homemade Peppermint Scrub gift using some of the darling clip art from FPTFY.
Supplies: A widemouthed glass container, Epsom Salt, grapeseed oil, and peppermint oil, a craft stick or bamboo spoon, small rubber stamps and black Stayz-Oz ink.
You can find these fun Vintage Reindeer printables in red or green here.
Grab a rectangle for a label and a circle for the lid.
To make the scrub, mix the following ingredients:
3 1/2 cups Epsom Salt
1 cup grapeseed oil
30+ drops of peppermint essential oil
Place the Epsom salt in a bowl and mix with grapeseed oil, making sure it's saturated but not oversaturated with the grapeseed oil.
Scent with essential oil
Stamp "Peppermint Scrub" on the cute rectangle label, "For You" on the circle, and the phrase "Ho Ho Ho" on the craft stick or spoon.
You can also use leftover scrapbook paper. I punched circles from some happy holiday paper and added the reindeer circle on top. To make the ruffle I sewed some crepe paper together. Double sided tape works well to affix the papers to the jar.
Just add a bow and maybe a jingle bell for fun.
There's a little holiday gift cheer! Thanks to Keren and FPTFY for the a-deer-able graphics.
