DIY Wedding – Peacock Theme Soap Gift Box

by Susan Myers on February 26, 2013

This is DIY Wedding week at the Sitcom!  Today, we are creating a Peacock Themed Soap Gift Box!

I am joining The Country Chic Cottage, along with a bunch of other craft bloggers in order to show you some great DIY wedding ideas.  I will be showing you several different tutorials this week that will work well with a peacock themed wedding.  And I will be using some great supplies from the Bridal Collection by David Tutera!

I’ve made things for gifts for weddings, in fact one of my favorite projects, the Quilled Monogram, was a wedding present.  But I have actually never tried my hand before at making wedding decorations and favors.

My first project this week is a wedding favor in the theme of peacocks.  I created little feathered soaps to give away to the guests!

For this project I used:

clear melt-and-pour glycerine soap
white melt-and-pour glycerine soap
soap mold
feathers
white gift boxes
purple satin ribbon
peacock feathers
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!

These soaps are beautiful! I don’t think I would want to use them–just display them!
