Once you see Peeps at the store, you know Easter is right around the corner. Put your own spin on this iconic holiday treat by making some soap bars inspired by Peeps! Doesn't matter if you're young or old, male or female, everyone loves a good soap bar which makes this the perfect Easter DIY gift. If you're hosting your own Easter celebration, we suggest using this DIY as decoration that your guest can take home as a souvenir gift.
What You Will Need:
1. Wilton's Peeps Mold (here)
2. White Glycerin Soap Base (here)
4. Plastic Cups
5. Stirring Sticks
(Directions From Clubcrafted.com)
1. Following the instructions on the packaging, melt about 1/3 of the soap block. I say 1/3 because I found it easier to melt little by little since I was using so many different colors. Once the soap has melted, quickly pour the soap into plastic cups. If you’re doing multiple colors like me, you really only need to fill them about halfway. Drop soap coloring into each cup until desired color has been reached. Stir well and quickly poor into mold. Note: Make sure you act quickly in adding the color, stirring, and pouring into the mold because the melted soap will harden up on you quicker than you think. It’s similar to dealing with candle wax. Repeat this step until your Peep molds have been filled.
Step 2: Let soap (in the molds) sit out for about 45 minutes or until hardened.
Step 3: Once soap has hardened, take your Peeps soap out of the mold. I loved that the mold was made of silicone making it easy for you to remove the soap.
