I’ve got 2 beautiful, sweet daughters. One is 10 and the other is 13 and they LOVE to give gifts to their friends! Anyone else have girls in that age range? I’m not sure if it’s just a phase or it’s their personalities… but any excuse to give a gift and they are on it. So needless to say they’ve been planning out Christmas gifts for their friends for weeks. So I suggested they make some cute Peppermint Bath Salt Ornaments for their friends. These are super cute… I’d love one… plus they take only a few minutes to make.
Who doesn’t enjoy a soak in the tub. One of these bath salt ornaments will give 2 relaxing soaks.
Here’s what you need: (affiliate links for your convenience)
Peppermint Bath Salt Ornaments
- 2 cups epsom salt
- 2 tablespoons of baking soda
- a few drops of peppermint oil (add 1-2 at a time till you get your desired scent)
- red food coloring (if desired)
- plastic bulb ornaments
Start by mixing the epsom salt, baking soda and peppermint oil. Then take 1/2 and place in another bowl and add a drop of the red food coloring…mix and add more if needed.
Using a funnel made filling the ornaments super easy. I added 2-3 tablespoons of the red and then 2-3 tablespoons of the white… going back and forth until it was filled.
Placing the ornament in ice cream dish/bowl keeps your hands free.
I added a sprig of greenery and tied it all up with a red and white baker’s twine bow.
A super cute gift idea! This recipe makes enough to fill two 3 1/2″ ornaments.
I’m sure their friends will love them and so will yours!
