DIY Rainbow Soap To Brighten Your Day

DIY RAINBOW SOAP for St. Patrick's Day

One of our favorite new crafts around here is making DIY soap. Jessica’s 8-year-old daughter can’t get enough, so we may have enough soap to keep our hands clean for years and years. At least it’s colorful, and useful! The variations are endless with this DIY, and anyone can do it. It’s really fun. We made soap inspired by St. Patrick’s Day and Spring, but who doesn’t love rainbows year-round?

Stuck On These DIY Planters For Valentine’s Day

We took a girls trip to Austin in November (hope to have a recap soon). As we researched the city, and all the fun things to do, the highly popular Austin murals popped up. We never made it to the Welcome to Austin wall, but we did run into the “I love you so much wall.” Just like everyone around us, we stopped to pose for a photo, or two (or 10).

With the month of love (or heartbreak…depending on your situation) upon us, we thought it would be fun to give our mom a small memento to remember “love” wall from the trip. Mom’s have the healing touch, so it seems fitting that we give our mom an aloe plant in a DIY planter inspired by the famous Austin wall.

We know this year is less about succulents and cactus, and more about the sloth. But, who can resist a cactus pun around Valentine’s Day? It’s a plant most people can keep alive (for at least half a year), and it’s an affordable gift to give friends and family.


  • Terra cotta pots
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Cactus or succulent
  • Vinyl


Paint the terra cotta pot. Add the words from your favorite mural (or use the Austin one, too), or think of your favorite cactus puns. You can use paint markers, or paint and a paintbrush. Another idea is to use vinyl to decorate the terra cotta pot, just like we did for the “Stuck On You” planter. We used our Silhouette cutting machine. For some extra personalization, glue wallet size photos and hearts on mini wood skewers, and stick in the pot. Finally, spray the pots with sealant to prevent water from damaging it.
