In the second part of the Mistletoe soap project, I will show you how to finish your festive holiday soap decoration. If you missed the first part on making the holly leaves, click here to be taken to that tutorial.
step 6: Melt clear soap base (it’s fine if you remelt some of the base you used for embedding the leaves in), taking care to control the temperature so the soap doesn’t boil or steam too much.
step 7: Add iridescent glitter and Holly Berry fragrance (I used .5 ounce of fragrance for a pound of soap for a really bold scent) and mix well.
step 8: Make sure your soap is cool enough to pour so that it won’t remelt your first layer of soap. Usually 120F. Spritz the surface of the the first layer with rubbing alcohol and pour your second glittery layer. Spritz the back of the soap to disperse any air bubbles.
step 9: Cut about a 6 inch loop of ribbon or string.
step 10: Place the ends of your ribbon in the soap. We tried to position ours behind the leaves so the ends would be hidden. Hold in place with a piece of tape or you hand until it sets up.
Step 11:Allow to sit for 24 hours and remove from the mold. Hang above a door a frame or some other high traffic zone and casually wait underneath for someone kissable to walk by.
