Today is National Purple Day, dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. Folks in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness. In honor of the day, I thought I’d feature a purple themed wedding craft – Peacock Soap Wedding Favors!
I’ve made things for gifts for weddings, in fact one of my favorite projects, the Quilled Monogram, was a wedding present. I also enjoy making handmade wedding favors and decorations.
For this project I used:
clear melt-and-pour glycerine soap
white melt-and-pour glycerine soap
white gift boxes
purple satin ribbon
alcohol in spray bottle
David Tutera Rhinestone Hair Snaps
Begin by cutting up the clear glycerine soap into 1 inch pieces. Add to a microwave safe cup and microwave at high in 30 second increments, stirring each time until soap has melted.
Pour a thin layer of clear soap into the mold. Add a feather and then add enough clear soap on top to cover the feather. Allow this layer to dry about 20 minutes before going to next step.
Melt the white glycerine soap using the same method as above. Lightly spritz the first layer with alcohol, and then pour a layer of white soap to fill the mold. Allow soap to dry for at least 30 minutes before unmolding. To unmold, simply push from the center and soap should pop out.
The result is pretty feathered soaps! Now we need to make a great gift box to contain them!
Use dots of hot glue to attach a ribbon around the circumference of the box.
Add a peacock feather to the top, and glue it down with a bit of glue applied to a rhinestone hair snap from the David Tutera Bridal Collection. Nothing like a little bling to finish it off!
And there you have it! Beautiful little soap favors for your Peacock themed wedding!
