Flor de Lis Lavender Bath Salts

Remember the Numbered Jars Tutorial I posted a couple of days ago? Well, the same day I found those jars, I also found one with a cork topper. I threw it in the cart not really knowing what I would do with it, but I had to have it. While I was figuring out the stencil for the numbered jars, I saw a flor de lis on the keyboard of the Cricut and this idea came to mind!


I followed the same steps as with the numbered ones:



The only difference was the size, which was 3 inches for the flor de lis.



I used a lemony green that matches the accents in the master bathroom:



I filled it up with homemade bath salts, following this recipe from the wonderful Maggie over at Smashed Peas and Carrots.



While I was setting the salts up in my bathroom I remembered a silver spoon I had picked up at a vintage store in Rhode Island. It had been sitting in a drawer of the china cabinet for years with no purpose. I gave it a quick polish and think it looks so happy now!



Happy and at home, hanging from some delightful lavender bath salts!



Update: I am currently training for a 5K and used some of these in a post-run bath last night... they were FABULOUS!!! Please make some for yourself, for your mom, for a friend... they'll love you!

How cute. I make a lot of sugar scrub for gifts and this would be so much cuter than the plastic containers I have used in the past.
