How to Make Homemade Candy Cane Soap


I love this craft idea which I think would make a wonderful gift.  I found this idea at the Celebrations website; however, here are the instructions:


What You Will Need:

–   1 pound of clear glycerine soap (which you can find at a craft store)

–   Soap Molds

–   Peppermint Oil



What You Will need to do:

1.  Place candy canes in a freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin or hands.  Place crushed candy canes on the bottom of the soap molds. It’s easy to gage by putting one candy cane per piece of soap.


2.   Cut the glycerine soap into little pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl.


3.   Microwave glycerine in 30 second intervals, mixing until melted.  Mix in 3-4 drops of peppermint oil.


4.   Pour glycerine in soap molds, over crushed candy canes. Pour slowly so candy canes don’t shift.  If candy canes move around too much while you pouring the soap, use a toothpick to move the candy cane pieces back into place.


5.   Allow soap to completely harden before removing from molds.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
