Glycerine Soap Gem Stones

Oh my, sweet smelling gems? This mesmerising and unexpectedly involved activity from Mr Printables is a delightfully scented way to spend a Sunday morning.

You will need:
+ glycerine soap
+ thin-bladed knife
+ chopping block

Colourful glycerine soap is availbale from EBAY and Muji

How to:
Cut each block of soap into a few chunks then keep cutting off corners in different angles and you’ll easily end up with nice faceted shapes.

Display ideas:
1. Thread fishing line through each gem stone to make a mobile and hang in the bathroom window.
2. Fill a glass bowl of gem stones with fairy lights or small light globes below it.
