Do you have a little princess in the house? If so, this is the perfect craft for you and her to do together. If you’ve never tried to make your own decorative soap before, it is quite easy. Add a little “bling” to your soap and Voila! Bling Soap Bars for a princess!
DIY “Bling” Soap Bars Supply List
6 count Wilton silicone heart mold
20 oz melt and pour soap base
4-5 drops Vitamin E oil
1 teaspoon strawberry fragrance oil
1 teaspoon bubble gum fragrance oil
Lilac and red (or pink) soap colorants
6 plastic Valentine heart rings
DIY “Bling” Soap Bars Directions
1. Most melt and pour soap bases come in a large block with 1 oz cubes that can be cut/broken apart. Separate 20 of the cubes from the block of soap base.
2. Chop or grate the soap cubes into smaller pieces and place half of them in a microwave bowl.
3. Microwave half of the cubes for 45 seconds on HIGH and stir. Continue to microwave in 20 second increments increments until completely melted.
5. Add the strawberry fragrance oil and a few drops of the red or pink soap colorant to the melted soap and whisk to combine.
6. Immediately, pour the melted “pink” soap into the heart-shaped molds, filling each mold half way. It will harden within 2 minutes of pouring into the molds.
7. Add the remaining soap cubes to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds and stir. Continue to microwave in 20 second increments until the soap is completely melted.
8. Add the bubblegum flavoring oil and lilac soap colorant and stir well to combine. Pour into each heart mold and fill up to the top. Be sure to stir really good or some of the soap that settles to the top will remain white in color. (It will just give your soap a 3 layer look).
9. Wait 1 minute before gently placing a toy ring into the middle of each soap mold. The soap should be firm but not completely hardened.
10. Place the silicone mold in the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour.
11. Remove the soap bars from their molds and place in an airtight container for
storage up to 6 months!

Okay, this is so neat! I love the idea of making two layers of colors as well as the heart molds! I’ve always been curious about trying D-I-Y soap projects; the thought of being able to make your own unique type of soap is so cool to me. I may just have to start with this one. Thanks for sharing! 😀
