These DIY soaps would make adorable party favors and gifts, or keep them for yourself! They also make great guest soaps as a fun and whimsical surprise – especially the glittery rainbow popsicle soap.

I really like this easy craft project because it uses a melt and pour soap base, making it a great craft for kids. Growing up, soap making was actually one of my favorite craft projects. I had my few simple soap molds and would just crank them out. I used every one of those soaps as well and always felt proud I had made them myself. If I knew then I could make soap look like desserts and treats, I don’t think I would ever stop making soaps!

Instructions to Make the Glitter Rainbow Popsicle Soap

Step by Step Instructions

Cut off some of the clear glycerin soap base into 6 microwave safe containers. Each one will be a different color so add a few drops of a single color of soap dye into each. You want to have red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Microwave them on 10 second increments until melted and mix in some of the body safe glitter.

Tip: If you don’t have all of those colors, that’s totally fine, you can mix the colors using red, yellow, and blue. (Red+Blue=Purple), (Red+Yellow=Orange), (Blue+Yellow=Green)

Add in a drop of fragrance to each and mix in. Since you have multiple layers, you don’t want to add in too much to each.

Then starting with the red (or pink, in my case), pour the melted soap into the popsicle mold. Wait for a film to form on top and then carefully pour in the orange soap.

Tip: It’s a good idea to spray each layer of soap with rubbing alcohol before pouring on the next layer. This pops any bubbles and allows the layers to stick together more easily.

Next, pour in the yellow soap. Continue pouring in each color on top of the other so the next colors would be green, blue, and lastly, purple.

Tip: If your mixed soaps harden, you can simply eat them up again in the microwave.

After you have all of the colors in the popsicle mold, put the top on and insert a popsicle stick. Make sure the popsicle stick is at least half way down the mold.
