Decorative Hand Soap

Pretty up your liquid hand soap!

Mother's Day Gift Idea #2
We have a clever way of turning inexpensive liquid hand soap into a beautiful way of wasing your hands! This is not only a great Mother's Day gift idea, but nice to have at your own bath or kitchen sink! Want to learn how!!! 

What you need:
Liquid hand soap. Silk flowers. Ribbon. Cello gift wrap. Skewer stick. Scissor. Gift hang tag.
{We found our liquid soap and silk flowers at the Dollar Store.}
What to do:
Remove the liquid soap label from the soap bottle.{we soaked ours in hot water for awhile, and peeled it off. You want to have the bottle free of anything on it so the flowers will show through}

Take your flowers and start trimming them off from the main stem.
Open up your liquid soap and pour some off into another bottle or jar{that you can have for a later use}, so that there is enough room to put in your flowers.

Using your skewer stick, begin poking the flowers down inside the soap bottle until you are satisfied with the look. Replace the top and wipe clean.

Decorate the outside of the bottle:
Using your ribbon and a little clipping of your flowers, tie them around the neck of the soap bottle.

                   This is what you will end up with afterwards!

Time for gift giving:
Wrap up your soap(s) with the Cello wrap and ribbon. Remember to put your to~from hang tag on your gift!

           We hope we have inspired you today in some small way!
                             Remember, keep it Homespun!

                                  I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
