Crafted using the exact same recipe as my unicorn poop sugar scrub, both my bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs can be made using the same batch of my moldable semi-solid sugar scrub “dough.” Simply make a batch, then divide it as needed for the number of colors you want.

In my case, I used a combo of colors for a purple-gray for my bunny butts and yellow for my Easter chicks. The simple details are then painted on using micas and isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.

You can pre-make the “dough” base for these spring sugar scrubs then create the shapes and paint on the details with your kids or grandkids for a craft afternoon filled with fun!

DIY Spring Sugar Scrubs

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
6 oz. ultra refined shea butter
1 oz. extra virgin chia seed oil
.75 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. xanthan gum powder
.15 oz. castor oil
.35 oz. vegetable glycerin
.75 oz. Stephenson’s Natural SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base
.05 oz. kaolin clay (white cosmetic clay)
16 oz. granulated white sugar
.25 oz. essential oil or .4 oz. fragrance oil, of choice
liquid melt & pour soap colors and/or skin safe mica powders, to suit

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh the ingredients for my DIY spring sugar scrubs. I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.

Begin by weighing out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat at 50% power in a microwave until melted. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the melt and pour soap base and cut into small chunks. Stir into the melted butters and wax until melted. You can reheat if necessary to continue melting the soap base.

While these ingredients are still hot, weigh out the xanthan gum powder and whisk into the melted ingredients until it has dissolved.

Next, you’ll weigh out the remaining oils and glycerin. Combine the chia seed oil, castor oil, essential or fragrance oil and vegetable glycerin in the bowl with the previously melted ingredients and stir well.

In a separate container, weigh out the kaolin clay and sugar. Mix to combine.

Now pour the clay and sugar mixture into the liquid ingredients and mix well.

Set the mixture aside until it starts to thicken then remix with a spoon or spatula.

Now mix the sugar scrub mixture using a KitchenAid stand mixer as it continues to thicken.

You can place the sugar scrub mixture in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process if desired.

Once the mixture begins to look white and a little fluffy – kind of like marshmallow fluff – remove the mixing bowl from the stand mixer base and place it briefly in the fridge.

When sugar scrub starts to feel as if it’s hardening, remove it from the refrigerator.

Remix the sugar scrub mixture with your hands. Your body heat will make the sugar scrub pliable sort of like Play-doh.

You’re now ready to create your bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs!

You’ll start by dividing the sugar scrub “dough” into the number of colors you’d like to use. Working with one ball of sugar scrub “dough” at a time, add the colorant(s) to the first sugar scrub “dough” a little at a time. Knead well to incorporate the color in between adding the colorant. Once you’ve reached the color you want, repeat with any additional sugar scrub “dough” and colorants.

In this instance I colored half of my sugar scrub “dough” yellow for the little chick spring sugar scrubs and a combination of colors for the bunny butts to create a purplish-gray.

Learn how to make your own fun DIY spring sugar scrubs in bunny and chick shapes for Easter! Made from a moldable semi-solid sugar scrub, these spring sugar scrubs are fun both in and out of the tub!

Now divide the yellow colored sugar scrub “dough” into palm sized or smaller chunks and roll them into balls.

Do the same for the bunny butts, but leave some left over scrub off to the side. Once you’ve rolled out the balls for the bunny butts, roll out several smaller balls for the bunny tails and two more small balls for each of the bunny butts.

Roll the balls for the bunny feet on a flat surface until they are slightly oblong, then gently press flat.

Press the bunny feet onto the bottom of the large balls you created as your bunny butts. If you’re worried about the feet sticking during transport or if you’re gifting your spring sugar scrubs, simply dip the bottoms of the bunny feet into a small amount of melted natural melt and pour soap base and use it to adhere the components of your bunny together.

Now dip each sphere you created for the bunny tails into skin safe glitter or mica. I used Super Sparkles mica powder for my bunny tails. Then adhere the tails to your bunny butts as photographed above the bunny feet.

Set both the chick and the bunny spring sugar scrubs aside to harden back up. You can of course speed up this process by placing them in the fridge.

Once your bunny and chick sugar scrubs are nice and firm you’re ready to paint on the designs! This is done in basically the same way I painted on the micas for my DIY mermaid soaps!

You will use micas to paint the details your spring sugar scrubs. Grab a small container for each color you want to use to paint your scrubs.

Add a small amount of mica to each container followed by a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. As you want bold colors, use as little alcohol as possible to dampen the mica just enough that you can smoothly spread it with a small paintbrush.

To paint on the bunny feet simply paint one large circle in a contrasting color to your bunny’s color at the top of the bottoms of all the bunny feet. Then also paint three small circles on the bottoms of all the feet. Let them dry and your spring bunny sugar scrubs are done!

To make your chick sugar scrubs it’s pretty much the same deal and also super easy. Paint two small circles for eyes – or use candy eyes like I did for my DIY poop emoji bubble bars – and then paint on triangles for each of their beaks! Let them dry and now your spring chick sugar scrubs are complete!

Now all you need to do is package your spring sugar scrubs in large 16 oz. clear PET (BPA free) jars or wrap tightly in food service film and label as desired.

To use simply scoop or tear off desired amount from a chick or bunny and massage onto wet skin as you would a solid sugar scrub cube.

If you’d like to sell these chick and bunny spring sugar scrubs for Easter, be sure to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Exfoliating Whipped Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

13 oz. white granulated sugar
6 oz. ultra refined high melt point shea butter
.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
.5 oz. jojoba oil
.5 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.5 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. lagoon green jojoba beads
.2 oz. aloe vera oil
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum powder
.2 oz. fragrance oil or .1 oz. essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale weigh out the shea butter, cocoa butter and  emulsifying wax. Heat in a double boiler until melted. (Alternately you can also heat in a large glass Pyrex container in the microwave at 50% power.)

Next weigh out the jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil and aloe vera oil. (Please note that fractionated coconut oil is not the same as regular coconut oil and it is always liquid at room temperature or colder. In addition aloe vera oil is not the same thing as aloe vera gel. It’s actually an oil.)

Add the oils to the double boiler and stir well to combine.

Remove from heat and measure out the xanthan gum powder. Whisk into the melted butter mixture until it dissolves.

Now weigh out your fragrance of choice and stir into the melted body butter mixture.

A great scent choice for essential oils is equal parts lemongrass essential oil and peppermint essential oil with just a “splash” of lime peel essential oil. Or if a fragrance oil is preferred, I really love a limoncello fragrance oil for spring!

Allow the mixture to cool until it begins to get cloudy. (You can speed this process up by placing your melted ingredients in the refrigerator for a short amount of time.)

To make the whipped body butter soufflé recipe:

Then, if you are making the whipped body butter soufflé, pour the melted mixture into your mixing bowl and whip until your body butter reaches the desired consistency. I highly recommend a stand mixer for this step as it can take a while.

Once your whipped body butter soufflé has a creamy, marshmallow fluff like texture it can be spooned into your jars. (You should be able to hold a spoon of the whipped body butter upside down without it dripping off.) This recipe will yield two 8 oz. whipped body souffles.

To use, apply sparingly as a little goes a long way. Once your skin absorbs the body butter souffle, it will not feel greasy or tacky and you will really be able to feel the hydration that it locks in. For this reason I loved this product on my hands and feet – but feel free to use it anywhere you like.

If you are scenting your whipped body butter soufflé with essential oils or lip safe fragrance oils, this feels AMAZING on lips too!

To make the exfoliating whipped sugar scrub recipe:

If you are making the whipped sugar scrub, once your melted oils have cooled, weigh out the jojoba beads and the sugar and combine with the melted body butter mixture in your mixing bowl. Whip until the sugar scrub reaches desired consistency or until it holds onto your whisk or a spoon without dropping off.

Now spoon or pipe your whipped sugar scrub into your containers. My whipped sugar scrub recipe yields approximately four 8 oz. jars.

To use, scoop out desired amount and massage onto wet skin in the bath or shower as desired. Rinse off then pat dry.

Homemade Cold Process Egg Soap Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

3.92 oz. palm kernel flakes
3.6 oz. 76° melt point coconut oil
9 oz. palm oil
10.8 oz. pomace olive oil
4 oz. safflower oil
1.08 oz. castor oil
3.6 oz. rice bran oil

11.5 fluid oz. distilled water
4.9 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide

2 egg yolks
1 Tablespoon white kaolin (cosmetic) clay
2.25 oz. fragrance oil of choice, optional

Soap Notes:

Water as % of oils=32%
Superfat/Discount 6%

This homemade cold process egg soap recipe will yield 10-12 bars of soap approximately 4 oz. each depending on how they are cut and fits inside my DIY wooden loaf soap mold.

There is zero egg smell to this cold process egg soap recipe once it has cured. I noticed a slight smell when I first cut my homemade egg soap into bars, however it had completely dissipated by the next day and smelled only like the fragrance oil I’d used for my own batch.

Instructions:

To make this homemade cold process egg soap recipe, you’ll need to follow your basic cold process soapmaking method instructions. (If you’ve never made cold process soap before here’s a good, inexpensive beginner’s cold process soap recipe you can try.) Be sure to take all proper safety precautions when working with lye including goggles and gloves.

You’ll need to begin with eggs that are room temperature so I suggest removing your eggs from the refrigerator ahead of starting the soapmaking process. Crack the eggs open and separate the whites and yolk from two eggs. You’ll only be using the yolks for this egg soap recipe so feel free to scramble up the whites in an omelet! Alternately you could simply use one egg in its entirety – both the white and yolk – for a somewhat different result. While egg yolks serve as a fat in a cold process egg soap recipe, the protein in egg whites are believed to have an astringent effect on skin.

Once your eggs have reached room temperature, you are ready to begin the soapmaking process.

Begin the soapmaking process for this egg soap recipe by first measuring out the distilled water in fluid ounces. (Alternately you can use rosewater in place of the distilled water if you’re after a face specific soap.) Pour into a heat safe pitcher. Next, using a digital scale weigh out the lye. Slowly pour the lye into the water in a well ventilated area and stir until all the lye has dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Now weigh out the palm kernel flakes, coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, safflower oil, castor oil and rice bran oil using a digital scale and combine in a stainless steel pot. Heat until all of the oils have melted, then remove from heat and set aside.

Next weigh out your fragrance oil, if you’re choosing to scent your egg soap, and set aside. (You can also use essential oils in lieu of a fragrance oil, but you’ll want to use half the amount.)

Now measure out the kaolin clay and set aside.

Once the lye-water and soapmaking oils have cooled to around 90°F you’re ready to make this egg soap recipe.

You’ll need to begin by tempering your egg yolks. To do this remove about a cup of oil from your cooled soapmaking oils into a cup or bowl. Add the egg yolks and mix well with a whisk, fork or even a stick blender. Set aside.

Now slowly pour the lye-water into the soapmaking oils. Mix with a stick blender until you reach a light trace, then add the clay, fragrance, and egg-oil mixture. Mix again until the soap starts to thicken again and all ingredients are fully blended into the soap, then pour the soap into your prepared mold.

Lightly cover the soap with cardboard but don’t insulate the soap loaf.

This homemade cold process egg soap recipe is made with egg yolks. Eggs have long offered skin care benefits that include tightening skin, shrinking pores, and calming redness and breakouts. In cold process soap they also help to create a rich, thick lather.

After 24 hours you can unmold your homemade nut free soap loaf and cut it into bars. Allow your soaps to cure 4-6 weeks before use, then wrap and label as desired.

Want to try eggs in your own homemade cold process soap recipe? Give it a try! Just be sure to bring your eggs to room temperature and temper your eggs in your cooled soapmaking oils to avoid an eggy smell or scrambled eggs. then add the tempered eggs at a light trace.

DIY Chalkboard Easter Egg “Baskets”

DIY Easter Chalkboard Pots - Go from Easter basket to plant pots once the holiday is over!

Easter baskets are fun to fill, gift and receive, but when my son was little we used his basket once and then it would sit on the shelf in his closet for a year. Rather than buy something and use it once, why not upcycle your basket into something new after Easter is over?

Easy DIY Chalkboard Plant Pots

I was browsing Darby Smart when I fell in love with these super cute chalkboard plant pots (image above via Darby Smart.) Having happily purchased DIY kits from them previously for my son and niece this past Christmas I went ahead and purchased this kit without hesitation. Not only did they ship within two days, they arrived within two days of shipping and the kit was exactly as described. However, instead of making them into plant pots, I made mine into miniature Easter baskets!

Since the pots come with Cool Bistro Chalk Markers writing your message on these pots is a snap! You can then easily change the message by simply erasing the chalk marker with a wet paper towel and then write a new message. Easter and even spring gardening projects aside, these could also be used for small Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts. Here’s how you make them…

Easy DIY Chalkboard Easter "Basket" Pots

DIY Chalkboard Easter “Basket” Pots

You’ll need:

Three small terra cotta pots (3 1/2″ in diameter by 3″ height)
Broad Point Tip Fluorescent Blue Bistro Chalk Marker
Broad Point Tip Regular White Bistro Chalk Marker
Pebeo Porcelaine Black Chalkboard Paint
foam brush

What to do:

How to Make Chalkboard Planters

Using the foam brush paint your pots with chalkboard paint. Allow to dry 15-20 minutes then apply a second coat of paint.

Bake on the chalkboard paint

Once these finish drying, heat in the oven on a baking sheet at 300°F for 30 minutes, then turn the oven off and allow the pots to cool completely in the oven. This process bonds the chalkboard paint to the surface of the pots.

DIY Easter Craft Project - Easy Chalkboard Easter "Basket" Pots

Now write your message on the pots using your Bistro chalk markers and fill them with the goodies of your choice. I used the crinkle paper that my DIY Darby Smart Kit came packed in as Easter “grass” then filled them with candy, eggs and my DIY Easter “Peeps” Inspired Homemade Soap!

DIY Chalkboard Easter Eggs

I still had a bit of chalkboard paint left over that can be used for other projects. Darby Smart also has some other great Easter ideas and DIY kits right now that use chalkboard paint like the DIY Chalkboard Easter Eggs pictured above from their website.

DIY Chalkboard Coasters for Easter

And these easy to execute DIY Chalkboard Easter Inspired Coasters!

Right now I have three new Darby Smart DIY Kits I just purchased and received waiting for me to get my hands on them! I’m super excited. I’ll be making animal canisters, mini magnetic terrariums, and etched champagne flutes!
