- Pour into Christmas tree soap mold filling about half way up cavity or less. Making trees different depths allows for better placement.
- To make 3 trees for each soap, you will need to repeat above step once the trees have hardened and have been removed from the mold.

- Before pouring white soap, check that temperature of soap is no higher than 125°F so the red does not bleed into the white.
- Pour white soap over the red until all 6 cavities are filled. Spritz top of soap with alcohol to release any air bubbles.
- When white soap is almost firm, spritz the bottom of the trees with alcohol and push down into the white base. You may need to hold them in place for a minute or so until they can stand on their own.
- Grate 4 oz. of white soap base using a cheese grater or potato peeler. Sprinkle white soap curls around the trees for each soap.
- Melt about 2 oz. of clear soap and drizzle this gently over the soap curls to hold them in place. Then immediately sprinkle them with glitter.
- When soaps have completely set up, carefully remove from mold.
- For packaging, we suggest placing in a cello bag and tie with matching ribbons.
