Easy Halloween DIY Project: Spooky Mini Soaps

easy-halloween-diy-spooky-mini-soaps

Today we have a super easy Halloween DIY project that you’ll love! We’re making spooky mini soaps! I love to come up with practical ways to celebrate holidays. In other words, I don’t want to really go out of my way to make or buy something I won’t use or that will just be in my way. For example, pumpkins are cute and all, but I’m not really into putting 18 of them on my porch and then having to find a dump to haul them all away! Have you ever tried to fit 18 rotting pumpkins in a trash can? Not really my idea of money well spent, if you know what I mean.

That’s why I decided to start making things that we already use every day that could also be turned into a way to celebrate the holidays. Well, I give you, spooky mini soaps! Easy to make, the supplies are inexpensive, and they don’t last forever, so you don’t have to store them after the holiday. Since they are minis, they’re only useful for a couple of washes each. Basically, they clean up after themselves! Don’t forget to print out this Easy Halloween DIY for later with our printable card below!
