Crafts for Fourth of July : DIY Flag Soaps

A red, white, and blue Fourth of July themed soap with silver stars next to a P&J Trading red, Strawberry Shortcake Fragrance Oil bottle.

CRAFTS FOR FOURTH OF JULY

Fourth of July is not complete without fireworks, great food, fun activities, and a little patriotism. It is one of our favorite holidays here at P&J Trading! There is something unique about sitting outside, soaking in the sun as we spend time with friends and family on this day. Thus, as a reminder of all the special aspects 4th of July brings, we decided to make American Flag inspired soaps! 

Each red, white, and blue layer of these soaps are deliciously scented with a P&J Strawberry Shortcake. We also added in a few silver stars for fun! This is a simple melt and pour DIY and will only take about 15 minutes to make. These Fourth of July soaps are perfect as party favors or to place around your home. Simply follow along in the video above or read the step-by-step instructions below.
