Jelly soap in a mason jar is a great addition to your shelves for any season. What better way to display product than in little 4-ounce glass jars. These jelly soaps will look just like jars of homemade jelly.
Jelly Soap In Mason Jar
Here is a link for the jars we used for this tutorial. They are a perfect size for using either whole. Or you can pinch off little bits at a time.
The Jar brand doesn’t have to be Mason, however, any 4-ounce heat safe jar will do. And be sure to label the jars as not a food item. They will look and smell scrumptious, but they are not for eating! This Recipe will make roughly 22-25 4 ounce jars. Mix and Match the scents and colors for a variety.
