Some days, I really love being a blogger. DIY projects go smoothly, blog posts come together, and I get to spend a full 30 minutes choosing cute papers and washi and twine combinations. This was one of those days:)

These DIY confetti soaps are perfect for kids (stocking stuffer, anyone?), and are so easy to make.

Make this recipe, then visit this post for soap packaging ideas!

I used melt and pour soap, so it was as simple as melting down the soap, adding fragrance, pouring into molds and stirring in confetti. Here’s the how-to:

rectangle soap mold

melt and pour clear glycerin soap


vegetable spray


paper, etc. for wrapping

Step 1: Prepare your mold by spraying with vegetable spray. This will help the soap come out easily once set. Cut your soap into squares, and place into a glass, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave according to package instructions.

Step 2: Once soap is melted (be careful not to overheat, as this can affect the consistency of the soap), add fragrance. I used doTERRA Wild Orange Essential Oil, and added 6 or so drops to t

he soap mixture. Mix well, and then pour into molds.

Step 3: After pouring soap into molds, add a pinch of confetti to each mold, and stir in using a wooden dowel. You will need to work quickly, as the soap sets faster than you’d think!

Step 4: Put in the refrigerator, and let set for 30 minutes, or until hard. Gently pop out soap once set. Having a hard time getting the soap out? Just put the mold in the freezer for a couple of minutes!

Step 5: The fun begins! Wrap and decorate your soap with whatever materials you choose. I chose scrapbook paper, twine and washi tape, but there are so many creative ways to make your soap gift-worthy!

Hey there! You can get this kind of confetti from amazon! Paper confetti might be a bit more enviromentally friendly!

This is awful for the environment!! At least change the ingredients to bio-degradable glitter/lustre.
