How to Make DIY Flower Soap

How to Prepare a Bar of Soap for Melting
  1. With a kitchen knife, carefully shave a bar of soap into small strips and drop the shavings into a microwave-safe bowl. Use as much soap as you like, depending on how large your candy molds are and how many flowers you want to create.
Soap Shavings After Melting in the Microwave
  1. Add a few drops of water into the bowl, and microwave the bowl on high for 10-second intervals, stirring the soap in between with a spoon. Heat the soap until it attains a soft, waxy consistency.
Melted Soap Pressed Into Flower-Shaped Candy Molds
  1. Once the soap is moldable, press it into the flower-shaped candy mold. Place the mold into your freezer until it solidifies.
How to Trim a Sandwich Bag to Create a Gift Bag
  1. Using scissors, cut off the “zipper” of a plastic sandwich bag so that only the clear part of the bag remains. Repeat this step for each stocking stuffer you’d like to make.

  1. Once the soap hardens, carefully take it out of the mold. Place two or three soaps into the plastic bag and tie the top of the bag with a festive bow.

Pop one bag into each of your family members’ stockings, and get ready for a fresh and squeaky-clean holiday!
