Supplies Used to Make Gingerbread Soap:

I usually work with about 1 lb (half of the block) of soap base at a time, which makes six gingerbread man soaps (for this batch I made only four soaps since I was working with the leftovers of another project). Slice the soap base into small cubes (it cuts easily with a kitchen knife), place them inside a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and melt in the microwave in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each to ensure that the soap is completely melted. For 1 lb of soap, I generally microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds, stir once again, and microwave a final time for 20 seconds. When the soap base is completely melted, add the brown soap colorant (I used about half of the bottle) and gingerbread fragrance oil (about 10-15 drops). Stir until well mixed, and carefully pour into the silicone gingerbread man mold. Spray the top of each soap with a couple of spritzes of 99% isopropyl alcohol to remove any bubbles. gingerbread man soaps poured into molds Allow the soap molds to sit undisturbed until completely cool (about 30-90 minutes depending on temperature/humidity). When the soaps are cool and firm, mix ¼ teaspoon mica powder (in your choice of color) with ½ teaspoon of isopropyl alcohol and use a fine paintbrush to paint the gingerbread details. gingerbread soap for christmasEasy peasy and super cute! gingerbread soap with peppermint candies gingerbread soap DIY christmas gift Wrap these cute gingerbread man soaps in a cellophane bag with pretty ribbon or baker’s twine for an easy and inexpensive DIY gift idea! gingerbread soap christmas gift Did I mention that these little guys smell AMAZING?
