Yesterday we had lots of fun making soap and bath salts. For the soap I just bought a kit from Michael’s. I also bought some extra colorings because I was planning to use them for my bath salts. But the package didn’t include the red it said it did, so I used the colors for the soaps.
First we started the soaps, the kit I bought only included 2 rubber stamps to place in the molds although the mold we had could make 3 soaps. So we made two bars at a time. It was really simple. Just melt, scent, color pour and walla pretty soap bars. My oldest girl loved doing this. Here is a picture of our finished soaps:
Didn’t they come out cute? The swirl and the blue colors were my dd’s idea. She has good ideas 🙂
And here are our finished Candy Cane Bath Salts . We used vanilla scent, because we couldn’t find any peppermint essential oil readily available in our area. But I love the scent of vanilla, so I think they came out great anyway.
I think these came out adorable. The pattern for the knitted jar covers came from this blog here.
Well, I need to scoot. Cookies are baking, laundry is going and I need to be busy and not playing on the computer. Even though it is one of my favorite toys, lol.
