STAR SPANGLED BATH SALTS

so...with trying to keep the crafties patriotic...decided to do up some star spangled bath salts!...you know...because tub time needs to be festive too!...the smell?...apple pie of course!...because you can't get more american than that!...

star spangled bath salts

grabbing items that i have on hand...i was able to whip up this in no time!...but even if you have to gather the goods...still won't take too much time away from the firework festivities...

you'll need some bath salts...i used dead sea salts...but epsom salts would work just as well!...a container for giving...soap colorants...would not use food colors...because you don't want the actual tub turning patriotic...fragrance oil...and a little something to make it all sparkle!...

i filled my container with the uncolored salts...just to get a measurement of how much i'll need...then dump out and divide into thirds...i found the easiest way to color and scent is just by placing the salts in ziploc baggies...in one...drop some red color in there...followed by fragrance oil...then shake shake shake...making sure the salts are all dyed...if you need a brighter color...just add some more drops!...repeat this with the blue...then fragrance the white...

now it's time to fill the container!...the trick for this...just snip the corner of the ziplock bag (like you do with frosting) and start layering!...top of with some stars or something just as sparkley!...the stuff i used was from christmas!...lol...

there ya go!...and you know what?...i'm pretty sure that uncle sam himself would even soak in these!...

****check out my linky party directory to see where i'm linking to this week!...

As always, you amaze me! You have to be the craftiest (in a nice way) person I know. Love the idea of Apple Pie scent. Too fun.

Just paid a small fortune for bath salts at lush....and they were not nearly as cute as this. Totally going to give this a shot with my daughter. Seems like she could do it all on her own. Thanks for the great directions! Love this idea!

How cute :) Being a German in England, the colour combo obviously won't work for me, but I reckon I could just use the colours ofthe irish flag to match my favourite football team :D Thanks for the inspiration.
