getting crafty: pumpkin sugar scrub

Our craft at the November meeting was simple & perfect for these weeks leading up to Thanksgiving... a pumpkin sugar scrub! You can use this yourself as a body or hand exfoliating scrub, or give it as a super-cute hostess or teacher gift during the upcoming holidays.


Here's the instructions if you'd like to make this pumpkin sugar scrub at home:

What you need:

  • a small jar... the ones we used at our meeting came from Ikea, but you can also find them at Target or Walmart
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice (or more if you like a stronger smell... you can buy this spice or make your own by mixing cinnamon, nutmeg & ground cloves)
  • 3 (scant) tbsp vegetable oil
  • a label (click here to download the labels that we used) & raffia or ribbon if desired

Instructions:

Combine the brown sugar, white sugar, pumpkin spice. Mix well. Add oil. Mix well. Put into jar. Add label. And you're done!

**Tip from Abbey, our master crafter: be sure the dry ingredients are well-mixed & free of lumps BEFORE adding your oil. 

**The lady who designed the downloadable labels for the jars also has tons of other free printables... check it out here! Thanks for sharing, Abbey!
