What To Do With Plastic Eggs After Easter? Make Natural Handmade Soaps!

If you have a lot of those colorful plastic eggs sitting around after Easter, I have a project for you.  Today I'm guest posting over at "My Repurposed Life" with a tutorial on how to use those leftover eggs to make beautiful handmade soaps!  

With this simple and versatile DIY project you can design custom soaps by adding your  choice of colors, scents, and natural elements (mine are made with dried Lavender and essential oil).  The egg-shaped soaps make a lovely gift when packaged in an upcycled egg carton.

  3. These are really pretty. I have never tried soap making (other than at Max's party), but these would be great to have on hand for gifts.
