Spring Activities: DIY

Spring is quickly approaching and as the warm weather arrives we thought it would be a great time to get out doors and do some DIY projects. Here are a few of our favorites! We hope you'll be inspired to get out there and do it yourself!  
Happy Creating!

Project #1: Painted Votives

These adorable hand-painted votives are the easiest way to brighten your home or event this spring {not to mention they are super easy!}

Project #2: Sugar Scrub
5 cups white granulated sugar
1/3 cup organic coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup organic jojoba oil
3 tsp extract (mint/orange/lemon/vanilla*/rosewater) (use 1/2 tsp per 1 cup sugar mixture)
a couple drops food coloring.
  1. In a large pot with a can protector (or what I did was put the rims of the cans on the bottom), place the cans at the bottom, and fill the pot until the water covers the jars. Heat to a simmer then remove to let dry. Turn off the heat and let the mental lids sit in the hot water while you fill the jars.
  2. Mix together white granulated sugar and both coconut and jojoba oils until evenly distributed.
  3. If you're making a big batch of 1 flavour, add 3 tsp whichever extract and food colouring and mix until incorporated. If you're making separate flavours, add 1/2 tsp extract per 1 cup of the mixture.
  4. Store in the sanitized, jars, packing the sugar tightly. Store in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
