Whether you are bored on a rainy day, are in need of a last-minute gift for a friend/ loved one, or want to start making and selling crafts, soap-making is the perfect DIY all day, every day. They are easy to make, require few materials that you can most likely pick up at the dollar store, and are so rewarding once you are finished. Besides, they are not one of the gifts that will sit at the back of the recipient’s closet for who knows how long, they will actually come to use! I mean, who doesn’t need soap?! Not only can you make beautiful colors and patterns but you have control over the extras that go into the lather. You can customize every piece by infusing them with natural scents and colors rather than the chemicals found in most mass-produced soaps.
Also, I don’t know about you but I have noticed that usually, with a such large list of craft ideas like this, they get worse and worse as you go along. It’s saddening. But don’t worry, I am proud to announce all 56 soaps ideas that you will find below are only the best, cutest DIY tutorials — that will have you wanting to make them all!
