Follow the steps below to make this soap and scrunchie in one.

You will need:

Scrunchie soap making (14)
  • Position paper cupcake holder on a flat surface
  • Fold scrunchie into itself and secure with plastic strip and tape
  • Chop M and P into jug, and melt in 30 second bursts until just liquid
  • Add colour drop by drop and stir until desired tone achieved
  • Add pearlescent and watch your soap blend!
  • Add fragrance - guideline 2% of soap weight and stir
  • Pour gently into positioned paper cupcake holder until two thirds full
Method continued:
  • Insert your scrunchie and hold submerged in the soap
  • Gently pour the remaining soap around the scrunchie until ‘full’
  • Secure scrunchie with a stick for a minute or until set in position
  • When cooled (approximately 60 minutes) release plastic strip
  • Stand back and admire!
Refer to previous tips if need be.
