Halloween Soap

I’ve always been partial to those darling handcrafted soaps with spiders and bugs trapped inside that you often find at boutique stores. They are so fun and festive!

What about making your own spooky Halloween soaps this year?

They are simple to make and relatively inexpensive.

And soap making is one of my favorite Halloween activities to do with my kids.

I’ll show you how to make homemade soap this Halloween – soap that your kids will actually want to use! (Includes affiliate links.)

Here is how to make homemade soap:

Supplies Needed To Make Homemade Halloween Soap:

-Block of glycerin soap (available at any craft store like Michael’s or Jo-Ann’s)
silicone muffin mold
-small plastic spiders (eyeballs or bugs work too)

You’ll also need a knife to cut the glycerin soap, a pair of scissors to trim the toys (I cut off the back of each spider ring and cut each eyeball in half), and a pair of tweezers to place the toys in the melted soap.

Directions To Make This Cute and Spooky Halloween Soap:

Step 1

Cut the glycerin block along the pre-scored lines, filling each cup of a flexible silicone muffin mold with two sections of soap.

Surprisingly, the soap cuts easily with a knife!
Step 2

Another option is to cut the glycerin up and place all of the soap sections (2-3 per muffin cup) into a microwaveable bowl. Then, microwave the soap as directed and quickly pour into the muffin mold.

Step 3

Put the silicone muffin mold into the microwave for 30 seconds to melt the glycerin. It’s likely that you’ll need to continue to heat the soap; do so for 10 seconds at a time and then recheck it.

Step 4

Remove melted soap from the microwave and place on a flat surface. (Bear in mind, the silicone muffin mold bends very easily, so you may want to remove the glass tray from your microwave with the muffin mold on top to avoid spilling the soap.)

Step 5

Using tweezers, push small plastic Halloween toys face down in the melted soap.

Step 6

Allow the soap to cool (at least 40 minutes).

Step 7

Once the soap has fully hardened, gently pop the bars out of the flexible muffin cups. (My 4-year-old daughter became a pro at this!)

Step 8

Cover soap bars with tissue paper or clear wrap and tie with ribbon.

Give some of your homemade Halloween soap to friends and family – but make sure to keep at least one bar for your bathroom!

And that’s all there is to it! Now you know how to make soap at home!

These homemade gifts make for a cute Halloween party favor or a non-candy addition to treat bags.

And who knows, maybe your own little ghosts and goblins will want to wash their hands when they see how fun the soap is!
