Spread the love

Thanks to The Spa Girl Life for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are my own.

These days, most of us are finding more and more ways to make ourselves comfortable at home. We now have more time to work on those DIY projects to make our home beautiful, we are creating activities for us to spend with the family, or simply trying out new recipes at home.Β 

We are stressed and pushed to think outside the box. Self-care is no different. There is no reason why you can’t create your own mini spa at home to help you relax. No need to get complicated. Just a simple few items can help you decompress in a bubble bath for a little while.

Before you get started, you need to prepare. Set some time and alert the family. Beg them for no interruptions!

While you are setting up your at-home spa, turn on the candle so the relaxing smell can penetrate your bathroom. Don’t worry about wasting it, this candle has 40 hours of burn time. The glass jar is reusable so you know we will create something with it as soon as it’s done πŸ˜‰

#2 – A One of a Kind DIY Bath Tub Tray

You can’t relax in a tub without a comfortable place to put your wine glass! Here’s how to make your own bathtub shelf that is made to fit perfectly onto your tub. All you need is a 4 foot slab of wood from Home Depot, 2 cabinet handles, and a wood stain of your choice.

First, but your piece of wood to the size of your tub so that it sits a few inches over the tub itself.Β

#5 – Inspirational Reading Material

What you don’t want to do in your at home spa is bring a device. We are on our devices ALL. DAY. LONG. If you want to play some music, then fine. Play it, and set it aside. But generally, this is the time to disconnect. Reading something inspirational is key. Here is a list of our favorite books by topic.

#6 – Something to Munch On

Of course us wine lovers can’t go anywhere without a glass of wine, and that includes the tub! But the perfect addition to the wine is some delicious dark chocolate to cleanse the pallet.

For a non-alcoholic option, consider this relaxing tea blend. Pair this with some fresh bread or fruit.

With the pieces of wood left over from the tray, we also made these fun signs using the Cricut just for fun!
