    I really wanted to make a Christmas Tree shaped soap for gifts this year, but I don’t have a mold in that shape.
    So I got a bit creative!

    My original plan was to just carve my soap bars up into the shape of Christmas trees. But then I realized I had a cookie cutter in that shape, so I tried it out on my first batch.
    Came out great! I even added a bit of decoration to them.

    My second batch I did a wall pour and tried to carve up the bars (as was my original plan).
    I hate them. Carving them up is tedious, and I end up wasting a lot of soap (rebatch here I come!).

    I honestly thought I’d like the carved bars best, but the cookie cutter ones turned out much better then I expected!

    Lesson learned: Buy a Christmas tree mold!

    Ok ... I don’t hate the hand carved ones as much now. Haha.

    Sometimes it takes a different perspective.
