your guests to use all spring long, or even for packing in your Easter basket as little gifts.
Wouldn’t you just love to wash up with a few of these pretties?
- White Melt and Pour Soap Base
- Soap Colorants
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- Glass Measuring Cup
- Hot Glue Gun
- Spray Bottle with Rubbing Alcohol
- Place to prop up eggs as they cool ( I used a silicone soap mold)
Begin by using the hot glue gun to seal up the holes in the Easter eggs. You
want to just add a dab of glue to the outside of the egg.
Next, arrange the bottom half of the Easter eggs in your container with the
open side up. Cut your soap into 1″ cubes, place in your glass measuring
cup or bowl, and microwave until just melted (about 30 seconds). Pour
some of the melted soap into another bowl and add your colorant. Mix to
combine. Let the melted soap cool slightly until it starts to form a
film on the top and then mix and pour the white soap into the Easter egg
half about 3/4 of the way full.
Then pour in the colored soap until the soap just reaches the top. Let the soap cool for an hour.
When the soap has cooled, repeat the process with the top of the eggs. When the top is full of melted soap, spritz it with the rubbing alcohol and
then invert the cooled soap in the bottom half of the egg onto the top
half and press the egg closed. Depending on how full you filled the top
of the egg, some soap may spill out the sides. Now set aside and let
cool completely (about 2-3 hours).
Once cooled, gently pop out the soap from the plastic Easter egg mold and you are ready to wash away!
I love how the soap turned out marbled and layered and with just the
right amount of color. These colorful layered soap DIY Easter eggs are
going to look mighty pretty in my bathroom for the next few months! Have you tried making your own soap yet? If you like this tutorial, you might want to check out the tutorial I did for gradient soap bars on the A Beautiful Mess blog.
