Valentines Day Crafts

Striking Decorated Soap Craft

It’s time to embellish hearts, purchase candy, and sharpen Cupid’s arrows. February is nearing and that means Valentine’s Day. The holiday is full of love and appreciation, but too often we are overwhelmed with gifts of chocolate and roses. Please don’t get me wrong- I have a soft spot for a piece of good chocolate, but it is fun to mix up the norm every once in awhile. This year I decided to make “fancy” soaps decorated with dried herbs for gift giving in lieu of the traditional Valentine.

These simple gifts are economical and striking. The soaps are constructed primarily of items you already own or can easily locate at a dollar or grocery store. The dried herbs or flowers dress up this craft and make it unique. Crafters of every skill level will be able to whip up some gorgeous offerings that will be cherished by the recipient.

To make these Valentines Day Crafts decorated soaps, here is what you will need:Continue reading
