Fun and Spooy DIY Halloween Spider Soap

I use about 1 lb (or half of the block) of soap base at a time which makes four large 4-ounce soaps. For these spider soaps I divided the block into half and made each half a different fragrance and color. I used blueberry fragrance oil for the purple soaps and pear fragrance for the green soaps, but you can use whatever scent and color combinations that you desire.

The block of glycerin soap base is soft, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. I slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside the 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and melt in the microwave. Melt in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each microwave session, 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 again, and microwave a final time for 20 seconds.

When the soap is completely melted, stir in a few drops of soap color and fragrance oil.  Add a plastic spider to the soap molds.  Pour the melted soap into the molds, and allow to sit undisturbed until completely cool. Note: the cooling process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on temperature and humidity levels.

    1. Absolutely! However, you would need to place it into the fridge immediately after pouring the soap. Moving the soap after it has begun to set up at all (and it starts to set up quickly!) will result in a slight wrinkling of the surface that will be visibly noticeable when using a clear soap base. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Patricia! I usually get my soap bases off of (you can find the same one that I used by clicking here!), but they are also available at Michaels, JoAnn, and Hobby Lobby.

  2. These are so fun. I can’t wait to make some with my kids. They will love them plus, it might motivate them to wash their hands better so they can get to the spider out first.
