Today we have a fun little project for you that will add beauty and fragrance to your home! From eHow.com comes this quick and easy step-by-step process for making balls of soap to place in a bowl or elsewhere as a unique decorative feature. They also make a great gift!
- Choose your favorite soap that comes as a bar. You can use any fragrance, color, or brand of bar soap to make homemade soap balls.
- Grate your bar of soap, or multiple bars of soap. You can use any standard cheese grater. Grate as much soap as you want to make into soap balls into a large bowl.
- Wet your hands with water and scoop up a handful of grated soap. Firmly press the soap shavings together.
- Wet your hands again and add more grated soap to the soap ball you are forming. Continue adding shavings to your soap ball until it is the size that you prefer. You can make multiple small soap balls or one large one per bar of soap.
As you make soap balls you may need to adjust how much water you add to the shavings. If the grated soap will not stick together, add more water. If it is beginning to lather up and become very mushy, use less water. If your soap ball is too wet, you can let it dry out before adding more shavings, or re-grate it and start over.
Try grating multiple bars of soap that are different colors or fragrances, and combining the shavings together to form new scents and interesting color combinations. And the most important part: have fun!
