I am so excited about this! I was looking at purchasing wooden soap molds and most of them were around $30 and I didn’t want to spend that for something that looked very simple! So the hubs and I made them and they are sooo easy to make. Trust me if we can make them anyone can! We are not skilled at woodworking by any means! We used 1 by 4s and depending on the size of the batch of soap you make, you can change the size of your mold. I make a medium to large size batch that makes about 8 lbs, so to make one soap mold we cut 3 1x4s 2 feet long and two 5 inch long side pieces and nailed it all together. Just like a box with no top (by the way we didn’t use a tutorial or anything just kind of did it). They aren’t the prettiest thing in the whole world but o well! But boy does it make my soap look so much better! So happy I finally took the plunge and made these. They only cost us $6 for two of them!! So we saved $54! My soap looks so much more professional and I have a lot less waste then when I was using a large tupperware container. Make sure to line the mold with plastic or freezer paper to make taking the soap out easier!
Yesterday I made my first batch of pumpkin pie soap! It is made with pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice! Isn’t it pretty? I am so excited to sell it at my first ever craft show! More details coming soon!
Hope ya’ll are inspired to take the plunge and make your own soap molds!
