Bling and Body Scrubs

Vanessa has been busy thinking up some amazing craft tutorials for you this week.

Most of you love a bit of bling and sparkle, so our first tutorial will be a great one to start off the week. Upcylce something you have around your home - like an old frame or magnet - with glitter, beads and sequins to give it a whole new life.


Why not try a certain colour scheme, or try making a pattern using the beads that you have?


I am going to use sequins from an old bag that has broken, to continue with the upcycling theme.

You have two tutorials for our next theme - homemade beauty products that you can craft at home from simple items.


In our first, try making a body scrub from items such as zest, sugar and coffee.

You can read how to do this here.



Next, try a coconut oil based bath melt, filled with anything you can think of. Vanessa used ingredients like orange zest and tea leaves.


My favourite, being a lover of tea, is the Earl Grey one.

Both of these would make lovely gifts.



Please send us a photo if you make any of these activities - we love to receive your images and to see your interpretation of an activity.


Stay safe, well and creative!
