Today we have our second guest poster for our Leprechaun series posts. I’m so excited, this idea is darling. And Toni is one of my favorite bloggers. Her crafts and printables are darling.
I’m so happy to be visiting Our Thrifty Ideas today! I’m Toni from Design Dazzle, and I love every holiday – any excuse for a party! It is so fun to start new traditions, make yummy treats, and have fun together as a family.
St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday! Unfortunately, it often gets overlooked for grown ups. Kids love dressing up in festive green, pinching bah-humbugs, and eating yummy green treats. We love making holidays fun for kids, but it can also be a fun holiday to treat your friends! This moldable sugar scrub is a cute way to show your kids and friends how lucky you are to know them! I hope you and your recipients enjoy this simple, sweet gift that’s as sweet as a pot of gold!
Supplies for Moldable Sugar Scrub
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup melt-and-pour soap
- 1 cup sugar
- 5-7 drops of lemon essential oils
- gel food coloring: kelly green, leaf green, yellow
- shamrock silicone mold
- microwaveable bowl
Step 1: Melt the melt-and-pour soap in the microwave for the instructed time on the package. I melted mine for about 1-2 minutes on 1/2 power, stirring occasionally every 20 seconds or so.
Step 2: Once the melt-and-pour is liquid, mix in the coconut oil. The mixture should be liquid. If it solidifies a bit, reheat it in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds.
Step 3: Mix in sugar, essential oil, and food coloring. Add only a little bit of food coloring at a time, until you reach your desired color. I used about 4 little dabs of kelly green, 3 little dabs of leaf green, and 2 little dabs of yellow. Yellow is key here to get the bright, fun green color!
Step 4: Continue to mix until the consistency is smooth and there are no chunks of different colors. Then, press mixture into a shamrock silicone mold.
