KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so in this week's Pinspiration we are helping you with some simple and affordable ideas. Heather Haley shows us how to make a customized coffee mug and Erin Barnett shows you a natural facial scrub.

NATURAL FACE SCRUB - Honey, Almond Facial Scrub

What you'll need:
1/4 cup almond meal
4 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon jojoba oil

Mix together and put in a decorative jar for a nice gift to pamper your Valentine.


What you'll need:
White mug
Permanent Marker

Decorate the mug, or a plate, to your heart's desire. You could put someone's initials or a quote, or let the kids design a custom gift. Put the mug in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. (Make sure the item is only washed by hand to avoid fading.)

To make the seal stronger and able to go through the dishwasher, you can use an oil-based Sharpie marker and an acrylic sealing spray.
