These cute little bunny soaps make the perfect little gift for Easter. I can’t believe I’ve never made soaps before, they’re so bloomin easy! I always thought it would be complicated and involve tons of ingredients. But it isn’t and it doesn’t. It’s totally craft cheating to be honest, because all you’re doing is melting down an existing block of soap and cutting it into new shapes. I love it! And as I have a thousand cookie cutters the prospects are endless. Mo ha haaa.
You Will Need:
- 1kg White melt and pour soap
- Soap base colours
- Essential Oils
- Loose bottom baking tin (or silicone tin)
- Bunny cookie cutter
- palette knife
1. Begin by breaking the soap into chunks and placing into 2 mugs. I found it tricky to get my soap base out the tub – after much (lethal) hacking I realised I could place it in hot water for a moment to loosen. Easy when you know.
2. Get your essential oils and colours at the ready and lay out your tins. Place the mugs in the microwave to melt the soap. Give them short blasts and stir periodically until the soap has just melted. Combine into one mug and add a few drops of essential oils and colour, then stir.
Pour into your tins – if you’re using a loose bottom tin, pour just a tiny bit in to start to seal the edges so that it doesn’t leak out the bottom. No, I didn’t do this for the first colour as you can see!
Quickly skim away any bubbles or froth and set aside to set for an hour. Then pop out the soap and use the cookie cutters to create your shapes.
Repeat to create a range of different coloured/scented bunnies.
