{Upcycled} Baby Shower Sugar Scrub Favors

Well hello there everyone!
I have been gone for quite awhile and I just want you all to know how much I appreciate those of you who have stuck around as well as you new readers(Thank you Pinterest!). I am almost 19 weeks along with pregnancy #3, and though I am feeling better, I am still SO stinking tired! Blah! Add to that, the Internet on my laptop was not working and that left me with no time for blogging. I am determined to come back though because I have missed the blogging community and my blog friends so much.

I have some new projects in the works,
but for now I will share some things from the summer that never got posted.

I am a big fan up upcycling and repurposing and these
Upcycled Baby Food Jars to Tealight Holders are one of my favorite projects.
I just love the simplicity of them as well as how little they cost to make.
Cute + frugal = Happy ME!

This is another of my favorite projects: Super Skintastic Sugar Scrub.
Not only does it make my skin smooth and moisturized, but it is cheap and easy to make. 
I'll bet you even have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now!

For my friends' baby shower favors we combined these two projects into:

Sugar Scrub Baby Shower Favors!
Get it? Baby food jars as favors for a BABY SHOWER?!? Ha ha ha!
I know...genius, right?

Scrub out the baby food jars really well and let them dry.

Scrub the lids.

Prime and paint the lids.
Mod Podge strips of fabric around jar and tie on ribbons.
Also, remove marking pen before assembling. *Wink Wink*

We used a few of them to hold candy as a cute decoration.

I made a large Sugar Scrub for the preggo (it is SO good for that stretching skin)
and we displayed them all on this adorable vintage baby scale.

Okay, so theres my first real post in months!
What did you think? ;)

I am linking up with these lovely parties:)

Welcome back! I need to find someone with baby food jars they can give me - those candles would be great at Christmas!

Holly @ Life as a Thrifter said...

This is super cute! For a while there, we had an explosion of baby jars in our house! I'll have to remember this for baby #2!

Hope you'll stop by!

Andi said...

Welcome back!!!! And DUDE those are so clever and cute!!! I still need to make that scrub! Hope you are still feeling a better. I never felt "great" through either of my pregnancies so I completely understand!

That is such a cute idea! Makes me wish I had a baby! Oh well, maybe I can remember this when I have grand kids someday.
