The other day I was looking for some cool baby shower favors, since my baby shower is in two weeks. I thought about doing some cute necklaces for the guests or maybe sugar scrub in a nice personalized jar. Anyways, I didn't do any since my awesome friends who are organizing my baby shower already took care of the favors. But still, while I was looking for favor ideas I thought the sugar scrub would make a perfect gift for bridal showers. Here is how it will look like when finished.
Easy DIY Sugar Scrub for Wedding Favors
Very easy to make and you can find the ingredients locally at your supermarket and craft stores. You will need:
- 1 cup of Turbinado Sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Essential Oil or Fragrance of your choice (for summer maybe something fresh Ocean Breeze related or Coconut)
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Almond Oil or any other of your preference
- 2 caps of Vitamin E
- Small Glass Jar
- Charm, Tags or Cardstock
Ingredients for the Sugar Scrub
Mix the Almond Oil with the Vitamin E and the Essential oil in a cup and add it to the Sugar in a larger bowl. Mix well and then add more of any of the ingredients if needed. I don't like too strong fragrances, so I chose to use half teaspoon, but you can add more. Once you have mixed everything well pour it into the glass jar. You can get small favor glass jars at Michaels or Jo-Ann. If you want larger jars you can find them in the supermarket. Another option is to get personalized jars online. Since it was for my personal use I just re-used a jar that I had at home. Now, for the decoration you can just do whatever your imagination tells you. I used a ribbon that I had at home and since I wanted it with a Beach look I just added a seashell charm, but you can personalize your tags or make your own with cardstock. Just let your creativity guide you!
Personalized Favor Jar Ideas
What do you think? Look nice, right? Very easy to make, it will only take you a few minutes and it looks great! Please note that I'm not an expert in this, so you might consult with your dermatologist if you have very sensitive skin.
But I know not everyone has time or likes doing the stuff on their own, so here are some ready made Beach Wedding or Bridal Shower Favors that I've found online.
