Guys, I have the perfect spring craft for you this week: DIY Succulent soap. Like most of my DIYs they will look super cute around your house or also make a great gift. You can add whatever essential oils you prefer but I chose eucalyptus because something about it seems perfect for spring. Right? So is this DIY Rose & Almond Foam Face Cleanser, but I might be bias. 😉
Not only that, but melt and pour soaps are so fun. If you buy the clear can you can put just about anything in it to create the perfect gift. Have nieces? Shopkins. Nephews? Mini Batman and Spiderman toys. Gardener? Succulents! Or, cute plastic flowers. Coffee lover? Coffee beans. Beach lover? Shells. Someone who loves money? Quarters! You get the picture. Anything that is small and plastic can be put inside these adorable soaps. This article on melt and pour soaps has a bunch of other cute ideas if you need more inspiration.

This literally might also be my easiest DIY yet and is completely fool proof. No Pinterest fails here.
DIY Succulent Soap Supplies:
- Silicone Soap Mold
- Extra clear melt and pour soap base
- Mini succulents/shopkins/quarters (I got mine at a craft store)
- Pyrex or other glass measuring cup
Here are a couple of notes about the supplies:
1.) Any shape soap mold if fine, but make sure to double check that whatever item you put in it will fit. My succulents were slightly wider than the rectangle molds I bought. I ended up liking the look but you might not.
2.) Extra clear is very important. Sometimes even the “clear” is a little foggy, like my photos show. Still cool, but definitely cooler when clearer.
RELATED: If you’re looking for another spring craft, try these DIY Coffee Filter Flowers. Make a wreath or top your succulent soaps with them.
1.) If not cut already, cut your melt and pour (I used a knife) in small cubes and melt about 60 seconds at a time in the microwave.
2.) Fill your molds about 1/5 to 1/4 of the way full to create a base.
3.) Leave to harden. This takes about 30- 45 minutes
4.) Place your item in the mold on top of the hardened soap.
5.) Cut up more soap, melt again and cover the item.
6.) Allow to harden again.
7.) Pop out and enjoy!
If you could make these what would you put in them? Let us know!
