During the Holiday season I like to change things up around the house and make things feel festive down to the candles and soaps. These DIY Ornament Soaps are not only easy to make but are an adorable addition to any bath. Your guest not only will get the cute factor with these, but they will get a few to take home as gifts! The best part, the options on these are endless. I went with a light turquiose since we have a coastal feel in our guest bath. I wanted them to resemble a glass ornament. As you can see I went with a clear turquoise base color and a white solid base as these little ornaments had various designs on the top. I love how you can see right through them. Could you imagine these in a red or pink color combo? I’m obsessed. The fragrance oil I went with makes you feel like you’re in a resort in the middle of the winter season. I LOVE how these turned out!

Begin by cutting a 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 piece of clear soap into small cubes in a measuring cup. Microwave the clear soap for 20-30 seconds until melted.
Add a drop or two of your turquoise colorant and stir until mixed. You will have to work quickly at this point. With a spoon fill each mold cavity part way with your mixture making sure you leave enough room for your second base color. Spritz with rubbing alcohol to remove any air bubbles.
Once your first layer has harden you will want to cut a 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 piece of the white soap base. Cut small pieces and place them in your measuring cup to melt. Microwave for 20-30 seconds until melted. Add a drop or two of your fragrance oil and stir until mixed. With a spoon fill each mold cavity to the top. Spritz with rubbing alcohol to remove any air bubbles.
At this point let your soaps harden for at least an hour and remove from your mold.
Now you are ready to impress all your guest with your mini soap ornaments!
