Peppermint Soap Patties Project

Spread holiday cheer this season with homemade peppermint soap patties. Wrap them in a stained coffee filter and twine, add a customized tag, and let the festivities begin!

Peppermint Soap Patties Project Instructions:

  1. Crush one candy cane and set aside for later.
     
  2. Cut a soap base into small, cheese-sized cubes with a soap cutter. A half of bar will yield two molds.
     
  3. Fill a glass mason jar (without the lid or rim) with the pieces of soap, and heat in a microwave for 30 seconds.
     
  4. Stir the melted soap with a dedicated spoon (something that you do not plan to use for food purposes), and continue heating for 10 seconds at a time until completely melted. Carefully remove the jar from the microwave (wear protection on your hands, since the glass might be hot) and place on a heat-safe surface.
     
  5. Add peppermint essential oil to the jar to your liking, and mix together with your dedicated spoon. For a stronger scent, just add more essential oil.Pour the liquid into your soap mold, add the crushed candy cane to each mold, and let cool. Place in a refrigerator to speed up the cooling time.
     
  6. Once your soaps have cured, gently press on the back of the mold to pop them out.
     
  7. Wrap each soap base in a stained or non-bleached coffee filter, and tie with coordinating twine and jute.
     
  8. Stamp “peppermint” onto a grubby tag and cut to size.
     
  9. Back the stamped tag with a decorative Papaya Art sticker, and adhere to the coffee filter.
     
  10. Add a Tidings Token and chandelier teardrop piece for an extra festive touch.
