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… soaps- cinnamon 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. soaps-ingredients We made cinnamon-clove soap, an orange zest soap, oatmeal-honey soap, and lavender. soaps- orange 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) soaps- lavender 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! soaps-packaged 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 Jovi 1 Thanks for stopping by to visit! Lots of love & Blessings
