Handmade Gifts- Soaps
Hello to all my sweet friends out there! I promised I’d share some of our homemade Christmas gift ideas with you this Holiday season… I wanted to share with you my first soap-making adventure. I’ve been wanting to try making soaps at home… so I researched and found some great recipes HERE on Martha Stewart’s website. We made cinnamon-clove soap, an orange zest soap, oatmeal-honey soap, and lavender. This is a great craft for the kids to get involved. My “little ones” stirred in the ingredients and grated the orange zest. (with supervision- it’s very HOT) I love that you can chose almost any container as a mold. We used little tart molds, Christmas tree ramekins, and snowman jello molds. We followed the Martha Stewart Soap Recipes HERE, then let them dry overnight. Packaging and/or wrapping the soaps is fun, too! You can also check out Martha’s Soap Making Basics if you are a beginner, like me 🙂 Well, I hope you get a chance to try soap-making during your craft time this Christmas 🙂 Let me know how it goes… P.S. This is our early Christmas surprise… say Hello to Jovi Thanks for stopping by to visit! Lots of love & Blessings
Love your surprise….definitely the cutest thing I've seen all day!
Oh, that puppy is so adorable. I will never forget when I was in 4th grade and their was a beagle puppy under the tree with a red ribbon….my best Christmas ever!
thanks for the link to soap making beginners. I've been wanting to make some for a while now. Maybe after the holidays I'll have time:-)

That may be one of the best surprises ever – Jovi! What a little darling. I was impressed with your newly acquired soap making skills, but am even more impressed with the Jovi acquisition. 🙂

I love the soaps, so cute. But the cutest is the one on the last picture. What a lovely one.
The soaps are cute and I bet them smell wonderful. But Jovi is darling and I just want to pick that puppy up and love on it!!!

My girls love to make soap. We even did that as a birthday party once. Love your new pup! Those paws!!!
How fun! I think we'll have to give soap making a try one day. They are beautiful and look like they smell amazing. And Jovi is just adorable! We've been without our beloved dog for almost 2 years now and I'm ready to bring a pup home. 🙂
