Easy spa crafts are perfect for a spa themed party for teen or preteen girls, or an afternoon at home with nothing to do. You don't need a lot of ingredients to whip up a few homemade spa treatments that can add some fun and relaxation to your evening. Now all you need is a massage.
Girls love spreading glitter all over themselves, and this is an easy craft to make. Just use aloe vera gel mixed with some fine glitter made of polyester and place the mixture in small containers. Stir it up with popsicle craft sticks. The glitter can be made in any color, will stay on where you put it, and doesn't contain a lot of artificial ingredients, making it a sensational spa party favor.
Put together an easy bag of herbs that will have you relaxing in a hot bath and smelling wonderful. Add a cup each of fresh mint, lavender, chamomile, rosemary and rose petals to a cheesecloth bag. The mixture in the bag steeps for 10 minutes in a bowl; then you add the liquid to the bath water. These bags of herbs will make pretty party favors or gifts when tied with a bow and a card with the instructions for use as well.
Melt and pour soap kits are inexpensive and can be purchased at any craft store. All you have to do is add whatever scent you like to the soap using essential oils and soap coloring, if you want to. To make it more fun, use interesting molds to make pretty, small soaps. Once the soap is hard, tie a few into bags to make sweet and yummy smelling crafts for take-home favors.
Girls can make their own spa flip-flop slippers by taking a plain pair of rubber flipflops and embellishing them. Adhesive rhinestones, artificial flowers, foam cutouts and tied-on ribbons are just a few ideas for decorating flip-flops. Provide a hot glue gun and lots of embellishments so customized flip-flops will be simple to make.
