These beauty DIY projects range from handmade facial cleansers to DIY solid perfume scents that are an affordable and organic alternative to store-bought perfumes. Fans of natural cosmetics will appreciate this list of crafty beauty ideas that are 100% organic and free from added chemicals.

Standouts from this list include a chocolate cake creamy scented sugar scrub from Soap Deli News blog. The recipe is 100% natural and leaves one's skin feeling incredibly soft after use. This beauty DIY project is made by blending together coconut oil, shea butter, almond oil and sugar and can be duplicated with household items or grocery store finds.

Another great example from this list is Free People's recipe for SPF sun oil. While branded body oils can come at an expensive price, this product combines coconut, carrot seed, olive and avocado oils to create a DIY serum. The finished product leaves one's skin feeling flawless during hot summer days and is a winning recipe for a smooth tan.
