Mix up a batch of DIY Peppermint Bath Salts and pair it with these free printable gift tags for homemade holiday gifts your friends & family will love!
As someone who has absolutely no holiday shopping done yet, I figured it was at least time to get my holiday crafting on. And being that I have a new love affair with peppermint & an ongoing love affair with LUSH bath & body everything, I thought I’d try my hand at mixing up a batch of peppermint bath salts to gift to my fellow bath-lovin’ friends.
So I went on the hunt for the ingredients, came back home and whipped it right up. Filled with epsom salt, sea salt, baking soda, and peppermint oil this bath salt took less than 5 minutes to mix up and into the individual containers it went! I scooped about 1 cup of bath salt into each 8oz. plastic container and then got to the crafty part.
To make these resemble giant peppermint candies, I cut 3 triangles out of colored cardstock and taped them to the top of the container’s lid. You can download a template for these here to help you trace the shape onto the paper you choose. These were designed to fit a 8 oz. container that has a lid diameter of 4.25″, so you may need to resize the template to fit the size of lid/container you choose.
After filling each container with about 1 cup of bath salt, I then wrapped each one in cellophane, tied the ends closed with bakers twine, and attached one of the gift tags I designed. I’ve included the link to download the tags below, as well as the template to customize the tags through Avery Design & Print Online. Not only can you customize the “type” of bath salts you create (i.e. you can change it from peppermint to lemon if you’d like!), but you can also easily input your own name in the “from” section. The other fun thing I discovered in the software today was that you can use the eyedropper tool to also change the colors to ANY color you’d like. So if you do want to use these gift tags for lemon bath salt later on, you can completely change the wording AND the color to a yellow theme. After you’re finished customizing, print on a sheet of Avery gift tags, and you’re on your way to easy gifting!
