Halloween DIY Bleeding Candle Decorations

DIY Bleeding Candles for Halloween | Revamperate DIY Bleeding Candles for Halloween | RevamperateIt’s almost time for Halloween! As it gets closet and closer and closer, I think it’s fair that the Halloween projects get a little easier. After all, the earlier you have your decorations up, the longer you can enjoy them. Today’s project is a quick one that you can make in 10 minutes or less and with easy to find supplies. You might already even have the supplies in your house, making this even easier. 

These bleeding candle decorations are really easy to make as a last-minute Halloween decoration . They use two different kinds of wax to give the appearance that a regular white candle is bleeding, and when the lights are dim and the candles are lit, they look pretty creepy. I used a red candle for the “blood” instead of my own wax because it’s easier and less expensive, but if you see yourself as a more advanced candlemaker, then feel free to make your own red wax. 

DIY Bleeding Candles for Halloween | RevamperateTime: 10 minutes 

Supplies:

  • White candles
  • Red candles (or you can make your own red wax)
  • Glass pourable measuring cup

First, lay out the white candles on a piece of parchment and set aside. 

I recommend using a pourable glass measuring cup for the red wax to make sure you achieve a dripping effect on the white candles, but if you don’t have access to a pourable container, you can also just light a candle and drip the wax onto the candle or use something that doesn’t have a pourable spout. 

Place the red candles or red wax into a pot (preferably not an expensive one), and heat on medium heat. Watch carefully until the wax is completely melted and then pour the wax into your pourable measuring cup – careful not to burn yourself! 

Slowly pour the wax along the top edge of the white candles and let it drip. You can also pour straight over the top and let it drip down the sides, but it can be less predictable that way. Always start slow and remember that you can always add more wax, but you can’t remove it once it’s poured, and it dries very quickly. Continue pouring wax along the edge until you are satisfied with the look.

When all the wax has dried, carefully pull the candles from the parchment and remove any wax that has pooled at the base. Of course, you can keep the pools of wax too! That’s up to you. 

Display them on candle holders and light ’em up! They look so much better when lit, and they make a really simple but beautiful Halloween decoration.

Halloween DIY Gumball Machine Costume

DIY Gumball Machine Costume | RevamperareDIY Gumball Machine Costume | Revamperare It’s really hard to be original with Halloween costumes anymore. It feels like everyone has already thought of my ideas, but this one I just had to run with because I thought it would be really fun to try. I hope you know what it is based on that photo? 

Yup, today I’m sharing my DIY gumball machine costume! This is one of my favorites in the history of all of my Halloween costumes. Last year I shared my DIY pineapple costume, and the year before that I dressed up as an owl with homemade wings (that was tough costume). In other recent years, I made myself a Mindy from Pokemon costume (Andrew’s all-time favorite) and Ke$ha. You never really have to grow out of loving Halloween, especially the costumes! 

This gumball machine costume is really easy to make, but it will take a lot of gluing, so just make yourself comfortable. You can also easily adapt this costume for children instead of adults, and you could even make this in a dress version instead of a top and skirt combo. Have fun with it and make it your own! It’s a fun costume and I can’t wait to wear it for Halloween. 

I’m not the best model, so these were probably the only good photos of me where I’m not fooling around making weird faces. I even bought a bag of bubblegum to blow bubbles during the shoot, so 90% of the photos were outtakes of me failing to blow bubbles and Andrew making fun of me. I should probably stick to taking photos of inanimate objects, right?

DIY Gumball Machine Costume | RevamperareTime: 30+ minutes

Supplies:

  • Red skirt
  • Tank top or crop top
  • Glue gun
  • 1-inch multi-colored small pom-poms (I used 5 80-pack bags)
  • Thick black ribbon 
  • White cardstock or sticker paper 

First of all, you’ll need to pick a tank top or crop top that you don’t mind ruining because you’re about to glue, like, a thousand pom-poms to it. It will forever be your gumball machine top, so don’t worry about buying anything fancy. I recommend choosing a top that doesn’t stretch too tight, because then you’ll have large spaces in between your pom-poms, so go up a size if possible. I used about 5 80-count bags of pom-poms and I’m a size small/medium, so adjust the number of pom-poms you buy as needed to cover your top. 

Heat up your glue gun and, starting at the top of your top, start gluing your mini pom-pom balls around the neck and staps. While you don’t need to follow an exact color pattern for the whole top, you’ll still want the colors to vary so that you don’t have too many of the same colors right next to each other. Glue them closely together to account for any stretching. Keep gluing the pom-poms in rows all the way down and around to the back of the top, preferably offsetting each new line a little so that you can’t see the undershirt at all.

DIY Gumball Machine Costume | RevamperareDIY Gumball Machine Costume | Revamperare SO MANY POM-POMS.

Pom-pom every inch that you think will be showing. If you’re using a tank top as opposed to a crop top, consider how much of the shirt will be tucked in to your skirt. 

Then set aside your top to make the belt. This part is really easy. Using either a marker or your computer, make a label on your cardstock that is about 5-6 inches long and 2-3 inches wide. Write 25 cents with a twist level and a slot for coins, and cut it out as needed. I used sticker paper and removed the backing to wrap around the ribbon, but if you use regular cardstock, you can glue or tape it to the ribbon. This way, you can easily remove it because it’s part of the belt. 

Assemble your outfit! Put on your new pom-pom crop top and your red skirt, and tie the ribbon around your waste. Now look at that – a gumball machine! 

Halloween DIY Skull Candy Bowl

DIY Skull Candy Bowl for Halloween | Revamperate DIY Skull Candy Bowl for Halloween | RevamperateI was never really much of a Halloween person, but in the past year that I’ve dedicate to the blog, I’ve learned to LOVE Halloween. Christmas still totally dominates in my book, but I love decorating for Halloween, creating costumes and making themed treats. This project was one of my favs! I passed by a bunch of styrofoam skulls at Michaels and had one of those “I can make something with that” moments. I wondered what would happen if I tried to make it into a bowl, and after some fiddling and scraping at styrofoam, I’m happy to say that it worked! 

While a skull candy bowl like this one may not hold enough candy for all of your trick-or-treaters, it will look nice filled with candy on your coffee table. But beware! The bowl will be empty before you know it, as was the case with the M&Ms in this picture. Sorry, not sorry? Anyway, this is a fun project – if you enjoy stabbing at styrofoam with a knife, you’re going to love it! 

Time: 25 minutes + bake time

Supplies:

  • Styrofoam skull
  • White spray paint 
  • Polymer clay
  • White caulking tube
  • Box cutter or knife 
  • Rolling pin 

First, spray paint the styrofoam skull with a light coat of white paint. I found that when spray painting styrofoam, it’s best to spray it very lightly from at least a foot away. I was spray painting a little bit too close and it caused some bubbling in a few places, which wasn’t fatal to the project, but it’s not ideal. It just gave the styrofoam a different texture that I planned at first. 

Use a small bowl to outline the opening on the top of the skull. With a knife, box cutter, or other sharp tool, begin cutting out the top of the skull. It’ll take some hacking, but it doesn’t have to look pretty because it will be covered up with clay. 

DIY Skull Candy Bowl for Halloween | RevamperateDIY Skull Candy Bowl for Halloween | RevamperatePreheat the clay to 275 degrees (or whatever your clay requires). 

Roll out the clay with a rolling pin until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. You can either eyeball it or trace a large bowl (larger than the one used on the skull top) and cut a large circle from the clay. Begin squaring the corners and smoothing them out to make the bowl deeper. Place it inside of the skull’s hole and shape it as needed to fit the space. 

Once satisfied, bake the clay for 15 minutes until hard, and when the clay bowl has cooled, place it inside of the skull opening. It should be a tight fit. It may require some pushing or additional shaping of the hole in the skull to get the bowl to fit. With the caulking tube, squeeze caulking around the edge of the bowl and skull, smoothing it out with your finger to completely fill in the gap. Let dry completely and use a damp paper towel to wipe the clay bowl clean. 

Then fill it up with candy! It may not hold enough to feed your trick-or-treaters but it will look great filled with candy on your coffee table. Happy Halloween!

Halloween DIY Coffin Table Planter

Halloween DIY | Succulent Coffin Table Planter Halloween DIY | Succulent Coffin Table PlanterHalloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for (although Christmas still holds the #1 spot)! This year, I started planning my Halloween ideas out way in advance to ensure I wouldn’t be freaking out at the last minute trying to spin up DIYs and recipes, which has made this a pretty stress-free Halloween for me (YAY). Well, lucky for me, all of the department stores had the same idea, so I started seeing all of the Halloween decorations come out in early August and started buying up a storm. 

I stumbled across this coffin-shaped box while I was at Michaels and thought I could do something with it, but I didn’t know what yet. I went ahead and bought it while I thought of something to use it for and decided it was destined to be a succulent planter, but it was missing something…a body. The next time I went to Michaels, it was packed with people searching for Halloween decorations and I found this hanging skeleton that was almost the perfect size for my coffin. 

As my plan came together, I created this spooky coffin table planter filled with dark succulents and bones coming out from the dirt. My cats promptly destroyed it when I was done, but I managed to put it back together and get some enjoyment out of it…it’s definitely one of my favorite decorations this year!

Halloween DIY | Succulent Coffin Table Planter Halloween DIY | Succulent Coffin Table PlanterTime: 20 minutes 

Supplies:

  • Coffin form (about 1-foot tall)
  • Black spray paint (optional)
  • Succulents 
  • Succulent soil
  • Rocks
  • Sand
  • Small skeleton

First of all, if your coffin is plain wood, give it 1-2 coats of black spray paint and let it dry completely before you do anything else. I actually found one that was already black, so it saved me a step or two. 

Then pour a layer of rocks into the coffin until you have about a 1/2 inch layer all the way across. Then cover with a layer of sand – you can use any color because you won’t be able to see it. Pour soil over the sand and plan out where you’d like your succulents and skeleton to be.  

Halloween DIY | Succulent Coffin Table Planter Halloween DIY | Succulent Coffin Table PlanterIf you have a full skeleton like mine, break it up. I didn’t want to use the entire thing, so I broke off the feet, arms, rib bones and head to place toward the middle of the coffin, peeking through the soil. For the hands in particular, I poked the bones into the dirt in a way that makes it look like someone is trying to break out of their grave. ZOMBIES! And then you can barely see a foot and the rib cage through the dirt with the skull slightly covered with a succulent. 

I used a few small and mini succulents to plant around the skeleton, but I didn’t want to place them too close together so that you could still see the skeleton bones peeking through. Plant the succulents and add additional soil on top as needed. As far as the type of succulents to buy, it’s completely up to you, but remember that you’ll need to be able to see the skeleton, so don’t buy anything too large, tall or viney that might get in the way. I loved the really dark blackish and purple colored succulents because they reminded me of Halloween, so those were my first choice. I also added a couple mini plants to add variety.

When you’re satisfied with your layout, lay out the coffin table planter on your coffee table or dining room table. Now you’re one step closer to Halloween! 

5-Minute DIY Easy Fabric Covered Mouse Pad

DIY Fabric Covered Mouse Pad | Revamperate DIY Fabric Covered Mouse Pad | RevamperateNow that I’m working in a new office (a much nicer one at that), I put a little extra effort into making sure my littler cubicle looks nice. Although the drive to and from work is slowing killing me, the new office is much brighter and cleaner, so I take more pride in my office now. I had purchased a cute mouse pad on Etsy when I first started working here, but after over a year of constant use, it got very dirty to the point that I just couldn’t keep it clean. Instead of buying a new once, I made one! 

It’s actually really easy to make your own mouse pad, and you can purchase plain black ones online for next-to-nothing. I found mine on Amazon for less than $5 and already had some really cute fabric that I bought when I was in Ventura that was perfect for this project. In only 5 minutes, you can dress up your desk with a customized fabric covered mouse pad that will last. Eventually, you will probably run into the same problem I had with my fabric getting dirty, but with this project you could even pull off your old fabric and replace it with a clean pattern if you need to. Here’s how! diy-fabric-covered-mouse-padTime: 5 minutes

Supplies:

  • Plain black mouse pad 
  • Spray fabric adhesive
  • Fabric
  • Chalk or pen 
  • Scissors 

First, lay your fabric pattern side facing down and lay your mouse pad on top. Using a piece of chalk or a pen, carefully trace the mouse pad onto your fabric. 

Begin cutting your fabric along the traced line. Remember, it’s always better to have too much fabric! Don’t cut too close to the line to ensure that you have wiggle room to trim it down afterwards. Over a piece of cardboard or concrete (something that can get messy), spray one side of the mouse pad with spray adhesive. If your mouse pad feels different on each side, spray the adhesive on the side that feels most like fabric (most likely intended to be the top). Position your circular piece of fabric over it and press down, smoothing it out until the entire pad is covered and the fabric is smooth. DIY Fabric Covered Mouse Pad | Revamperate DIY Fabric Covered Mouse Pad | RevamperateUsing your scissors, slowly trim off excess fabric around the pad. If you feel confident, you can also use a rotary cutter to make this faster. Personally, I have a tough time controlling my rotary cutter, so I found scissors to be safer. When you’re done trimming, let the mouse pad lay out to dry for several hours before using. Then you’re ready to go!

Start using your mouse pad and dress up your desk! These pictures are of my new desk at work, and I love that it’s so much brighter now. Happy crafting! DIY Fabric Covered Mouse Pad | Revamperate

The Home Depot Halloween Style Challenge: Creepy, Crawly Dining Room Decor

Happy Halloween! I was thrilled to be invited to participate in The Home Depot Halloween Style Challenge this year, and they challenged me with decorating a dining room with some fun decorations, including LOTS of spiders. I used my aunt’s house to decorate this creepy, crawly dining room with several of Home Depot’s Halloween supplies and lots of quilt batting spider webs.

DIY Fall Leaves Wreath

DIY Fall Leaves Wreath | Revamperate DIY Fall Leaves Wreath | Revamperate
Happy first day of fall!

The only real downside to living in California is the lack of seasons. Specifically, the lack of autumn because the leaves barely change color here in SoCal. It’s the one thing I don’t like about SoCal. Oh, and the traffic. I really enjoy fall and wish that we could enjoy it more here, but I still love the sightly cooler weather so that I can wear cozy sweaters and eat soup again after several months of summer. It’s officially socially acceptable to decorate for fall so I’m jumping right into it. After all, as soon as Starbucks starts selling pumpkin spice lattes, it means summer is really over.

Anyway, to kick off the season I’m sharing one of my favorite fall DIYs! I made this fall leaves wreath to hang on my door this year leading up to Thanksgiving. Then, of course, I’ll swap out my Christmas decorations. (yay, it’s almost Christmas! Kind of…)

DIY Fall Leaves Wreath | Revamperate
Time: 25 minutes

Supplies:

  • Styrofoam wreath form (about 12 inch diameter) 
  • Fake fall leaves (various colors and sizes)
  • Pins (like those used for sewing)
  • Glue gun
  • Extra fall decorations (like the mini bulbs I used)
  • Burlap ribbon (or cut burlap) 

I found a large selection of fall leaves at Michaels recently – both the kind on stems and the kind in bags. For this project, I recommend the leaves that come in bags so that you don’t have to bother cutting them from branches. The amount you need is based on the size of your wreath. I purchased about 4 bags and had more than enough for this project.

Using pins to place your leaves is optional, but I found them really helpful for laying out the placement of my leaves before I glued them down. 

To get started, lay out your leaves according to size. Use the pins to place your leaves on the wreath form, varying the sizes and colors so that it looks like it would on a tree. You’ll want the leaves to overlap slightly and all face the same direction (i.e. leaves facing left and continuing all the way around). To make sure the wreath looks full, continue placing the leaves on the sides. You should be able to view it from the side and not see styrofoam. 

As you go and confirm the placement of a portion of your leaves, go ahead and glue them down with your glue gun. It will be easier to glue them in pieces rather than pinning ALL the leaves and then having to go back, so do them in sections around the wreath. Also, when gluing, try to only glue the bottom portion of the leaf in place so that the top can flow out and give the wreath depth. 

DIY Fall Leaves Wreath | RevamperateDIY Fall Leaves Wreath | Revamperate
Continue pinning and gluing your wreath in sections all the way around your wreath until your satisfied with the placement of everything. If you make a mistake, just pull the leaves off (even if they’re glued) and replace them as needed. It shouldn’t do too much damage to the leaf or the wreath. If it does ruin your leaf, no worries. You may even be able to hide that one beneath other leaves so that you won’t even see the damage. 

Add more little pieces of fall garnish if you want. I added those colorful little bulbs in some spots. 

Once done, cut several pieces of burlap ribbon:

  • Two 1-foot-long pieces
  • One 5-inch-long piece

Loop a 1-foot-long piece around the top of your wreath and glue the ends together. Gluing burlap together can be difficult, so just be careful not to burn yourself! Let dry completely.

DIY Fall Leaves Wreath | Revamperate
To make the bow, loop the other 1-foot-long piece around 2 times. If you hold your fingers in the middle, it should look like a bow. If it does, good! If not, adjust the loop or cut the burlap to your desired length until it starts to look like a bow. Cut a small piece of string and tie a knot around the middle to secure it (see above picture). Then use the 5-inch-long piece of burlap to wrap around the middle, covering the string. Glue it on the backside and let dry so that it holds in place. Then glue the back of the bow to the bottom of your burlap loop. 

Once it’s all dry and secure, hang the finished wreath on your door and you’re set for the start of fall! Happy decorating!

DIY Easy Leather Zipper Pouch

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | RevamperateDIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
First and foremost, I’d like to thank my mom for helping me sew today’s project. Sewing is not my strongest skill, and I’m still learning the basics. For me, planning out the proper steps to take is the most difficult part and I tend to make a lot of mistakes. I can’t even tell you how many projects I’ve had to scrap because I messed something up too many times, so I should thank my mom for not letting me scrap this one when I accidentally sewed two pieces together the wrong way. Sewing takes a lot of practice. You can’t just sit down and do it right the first time (or if you can, teach me!) and that’s totally fine. 

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
Today’s sewing tutorial for this cute color blocked leather zipper pouch took me much longer than I anticipated because I messed up at least twice and my mom had to tear my seams out. What else did I do wrong? My seam around my zipper came apart several times because I sewed too close to the edge. I also melted a portion of the “leather” when I tried to iron a seam down because, as it turns out, plastic leather melts. Oops. My point is you can’t get it right every time, and when you’re testing out something new you’ll probably make mistakes. It doesn’t mean you should give up. Start small and tear out a few seams and start over. You’ll get it! 

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
Time: 30 minutes 

Supplies:

  • Half yard of faux leather
  • Half yard of complimenting heavy fabric
  • 7-inch “fashion” zipper (I used gold and black to match but stand out)
  • Complimenting thread 
  • Pins
  • Rotary cutter or scissors 

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
First, cut your fabric. You need two pieces of patterned fabric 8 in x 4 and one piece of leather 8 in x 6 in to make the outside. For the lining, cut one piece of patterned fabric about 8 in x 12 in (not pictured). 

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
Pin the right side of your patterned fabric to the zipper (long side) so that when your zipper is facing up, your fabric is pinned to the opposite side. Check before you sew! Once it’s pinned, if you were to sew a seam along the zipper to secure the fabric and you fold over the fabric to hide the seam, it should show the patterned side of the fabric and hide the seam. Pin the other piece of patterned fabric to the opposite side of the zipper. Then sew as close to the zipper as you can and iron your seams. When you unfold it, it should look like this: 

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | RevamperateDIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
You should have one long piece with the zipper in the middle. Leave face up and place the leather on top, right sides facing together and line up one end of the fabrics and pin. Then pin the other end to end of the fabric. Note, once pinned, it won’t lay flat. Sew each seam. Now you should have a hammock-looking piece with a zipper in the middle. 

Trim excess strings and open the zipper at least halfway. While still inside out, sew down each side to close them off, sewing as close to the zipper as you can. Trim strings and turn the pouch right-side out through the open zipper. Set aside.

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
To make the lining, lay out the fabric, right side facing down. On each shorter end, fold over a 1/2 inch seam and iron flat. Fold in half, right sides facing together and sew each side, stopping before you reach your ironed seam. Trim threads and stick the lining inside of the pouch. When inserted, you’ll see the right side of the fabric. Pin the top seams to the zipper on each side and sew down as close to the zipper as you can.

DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate DIY Leather Zipper Pouch | RevamperateDIY Leather Zipper Pouch | Revamperate
Lastly, use a needle and thread to hand sew any areas you could not reach with your sewing machine. For example, I hand sewed the corners of my lining to the zipper because my my sewing machine could not reach the corners with the zipper in the way. 

Ta-da! You should have a fully functional leather zipper pouch now that is both fashionable and versatile. Use for your makeup or for carrying around when you go out. Happy crafting! 

 

DIY Tassel Earrings

DIY Tassel Earrings | Revamperate DIY Tassel Earrings | Revamperate
Hey, happy Monday! I’ve been having a lot of fun with jewelry DIYs lately and today’s tutorial was the perfect quick fix. I tend to have those evenings where I’m sitting at home watching TV and suddenly get the urge to make something. These homemade tassel earrings sort of just happened one night out of boredom, and they turned out to be a fun end-of-summer accessory! 

These DIY tassel earrings are incredibly easy to make and only require a few cheap supplies. You can make them in every single color you want using embroidery floss! Embroidery floss is one the most under-appreciated craft supplies, but it’s incredibly useful for a variety of projects. This happens to be one of my favorites, but I also used embroidery floss recently to make this ombre string wrapped frame

I don’t know why, but I really love this photo! When I make Andrew take photos of me for projects like this, it’s hard to always stay serious and smile on cue, so we end up making fun of TV photo photoshoots where people say stuff like “act like a lion” and end up laughing with lots of outtakes of me making weird faces, and I just thought this one turned out to be a cool, more candid shot. 

DIY Tassel Earrings | Revamperate DIY Tassel Earrings | Revamperate
Time: 10 minutes

Supplies:

  • Embroidery floss
  • Dangling earring hardware 
  • 2 large jump rings 
  • Round nose pliers 
  • Scissors 

The great thing about embroidery floss is that it’s the perfect size to make tassels! This is the easiest way you could ever make them, and because embroidery floss comes in pretty much every color under the rainbow, the possibilities are endless. Leave the labels intact around the string so that the tassels are easier to make. 

With your round nose pliers, pry open the jump rings, loop them into each end of the string (the tops of your tassels), and attach them to the bottom of the dangling earring hardware. Then close the rings tightly. 

Remove the labels from the embroidery floss. 

Cut two 2-inch pieces of string from the small packet of string, preferable from each end so that you’re cutting an even amount of string off each side, and leave the rest intact. Tie each piece tightly around each end of the embroidery floss, leaving about a half-inch loop (where the jump rings are). When each end is secure, carefully cut right down the middle of the pack of embroidery floss so that it separates into two equal-sized tassels. Use your scissors to even out the pieces as needed. 

That’s all there is to it! The hardest part might be getting the jump rings attached to the tassels because it’s a small space to work with, but as long as you take your time, it will happen. Happy crafting!

PS – beware of cats….they really like dangling earrings, especially when they’re made with string 🙂

DIY Homemade Mango Sugar Scrub

DIY Mango Sugar Scrub | Revamperate DIY Mango Sugar Scrub | Revamperate
Now that summer is basically over (*wheeps*), it’s time to use the last summer fruit I’ll find for another year. I’ve never actually made anything with mango before, and I had NO idea how freaking hard it is to cut a mango. Do you know what the core of a mango looks like? It’s a crazy little fruit. 

Anyway, I made Andrew go hunt down a mango for me so that I could make this really luscious and easy homemade mango sugar scrub. It’s kind of an odd texture because it remains very liquid, but it makes your skin feel wonderful. Plus, it smells wonderful. With only a few ingredients, it makes for a really nice gift or just a treat for yourself. I found this cute jar with a copper top and made a little tag for it, and it really dressed up an otherwise un-pretty colored mixture. Don’t be fooled by the color! You’ll love it.

DIY Mango Sugar Scrub | Revamperate DIY Mango Sugar Scrub | Revamperate
Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 mango, peeled
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

First, peel and cut the mango and add to your food processor. Pulse for several seconds to mash up the mango, and add the melted coconut oil, olive oil, honey and sugars. Pulse for several seconds until all ingredients are combined well. 

Move the sugar scrub to a sealable container, like a canning jar or an old lotion jar and it’s ready to use! Add some ribbon or a homemade tag, and it makes a really nice gift or just looks pretty on your shelf. If the mixture separates, just mix it up again with a spoon and you’re good to go!
