Directions:

Use a butter knife or plastic knife to cut soap into smaller ½” cubes. Place cubes into a microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Cover loosely with paper towels. Place into the microwave oven for about 45 seconds or according to the manufacturer’s directions. Remove and stir gently. Be careful when removing the dish from the microwave because it will be hot. Continue microwaving at 15-second intervals until soap has melted. When the soap has melted, remove the dish from the microwave. Do not microwave once soap is melted, it can cause discoloration.

 

Plan your design of the soap. If you will be using more than one color, decide which color will go in first. The deepest part of the mold should be poured first.

 

Add a few drops of coloring to the soap. Mix color thoroughly adding more dye until desired color is reached. Note: Color may lighten when soap is cooled.

 

Pour colored soap into the mold. Tap mold lightly onto the table to set and pop any air bubbles. To harden soap faster, place the mold into the freezer for a few minutes. Remove mold from freezer.

 

Carefully twist mold a little to loosen soap from the mold. Turn mold upside down and release the soap from the mold.

 

Stick a craft pick between two petals on the plumeria, like a lollipop. Be careful not to break the soap. Tie a ribbon onto the craft pick below the plumeria. Tie the ribbon into a small bow. Do this to five of the plumeria.

 

Place the Styrofoam ball into the clay pot; use a little glue if necessary to hold in place. Arrange the five plumeria and stick into the Styrofoam. Cover the Styrofoam with the iridescent shreds.
