I use to think homemade soap was a craft for preteen girls doing a spa-themed party or something. No idea why that was what I thought, but now I know that there’s so many people who enjoy whipping up DIY soap recipes at home. And I get it – you get to choose what ingredients go into it (no harmful chemicals, or ingredients you can’t even pronounce), plus make them into any creative color, shape, scent or style you’d like! Now THAT sounds like my kinda thing 🙂 Whether you’re a pro or just wanting to try making your own for the first time, this DIY Honey Bee Glitter Soap is super simple, plus turns out amazing for a gift – or just to enjoy in your own home!
Don’t feel intimidated, because I know there’s some complex DIY soap tutorials out there – using weird ingredients or dozens of steps – but this is one of the awesome EASY ones. Y’all know how I don’t have time to waste on unnecessary steps or crafts!
