DIY It - Confetti Filled Soap

It's been a while since my last soap tutorial, so I have been thinking up a few easy soap tutorials to share with you all. This confetti filled soap is so easy that it is pretty much impossible to mess it up, which is always a plus with a DIY project don't you think? You could even say it is Pinterest fail proof. Yay! Plus, who doesn't need confetti filled soap in their life?!



Now that confetti you see in there isn't any old confetti. Nope, it is soap confetti! Tiny chopped up bits of colorful dyed soap imbedded in clear soap.

Supplies:
  • Clear melt and pour glycerine soap
  • White melt and pour glycerine soap
  • Soap colorants (I like to use these color blocks)
  • Soap mold (I used a rectangle, but you can use any shape silicone mold you want)
  • Spray bottle with rubbing alcohol
  • knife, glass measuring cup, spoon
Begin by chopping up your clear soap into roughly 1/2" cubes. Place a small handful of clear cubes cubes, plus a dime sized sliver of one of your color blocks, and a dime sized sliver of the white soap into your glass measuring cup and microwave for 15 second intervals (stirring in between) until the soap melts and just starts to bubble. Remove from the microwave and stir and then pour into one of your molds. Repeat for each color you want in your confetti soap. 


Let the soap cool and then remove from the mold and chop into small chunks using your knife. There is no rhyme or reason to the pieces, you just want them small. This is where that whole Pinterest fail proof thing comes in. If you can cut, you can't go wrong here!


Once you have all your small soap confetti bits, you will want to clean out your measuring cup and add roughly 1 cup of clear soap cubes to the cup. Repeat the melting process until no cubes of soap remain solid.


Pour the clear melted soap into your mold about 1/2 way full and then spray with the rubbing alcohol. Immediately add in a handful of your soap confetti pushing it down into the clear soap until the mold is filled. Spray the top with rubbing alcohol again then move on to your next mold and repeat the process. You want to be sure to pour your clear soap and add the confetti soap one mold at a time or else the soap will start to set up before you add the confetti. If the soap in your measuring cup starts to get hard, simply microwave it again to remelt it. 


Once all your bars of soap are cool, you can remove them from the mold and they are ready to use. If you are going to give them as a gift, you can wrap them in clear plastic wrap or put them in a cello bag. Glycerine soap can bloom (crystalize) slightly if left out, but as soon as you use it, it will be back to normal and the crystals will come right off. 


These confetti soap bars would make such a fun party favor don't you think? They also look super cute next to the sink for all your guests hand washing needs! And if you want to make them even cuter, use a shaped mold like a heart to make them. Now how freaking adorable would that be?!
