I love crafts that kids or adults can easily do but they are still classy enough to give as a handmade gift or have on display in your home. It seems like there are endless opportunities to give small gifts throughout the year.

Whether it’s for teachers, Mother’s Day, Christmas or a thank you gift, I’m always wracking my brain to come up with easy ways to get the kids involved in gift giving. This decoupage soap craft is so adorable and couldn’t be easier to make.

Wrap them up in cellophane and attach a gift card or some yummy smelling soap, and you have the sweetest gift ever! Or you could make them just to set out in your guest bathroom.

I love that you can customize these soaps with any craft paper to make them just how you want! You can often find these type of smooth soaps at Dollar Tree . . . making this one of the best Dollar Tree crafts ever!

First, cut out your craft paper to fit the soaps. I just cut around the flowers on the paper but you could do any shape that you want!

Can we use glue instead of mud podge like maybe watering the glue down instead of Mod Podge?


Thursday 1st of July 2021

Hi William! My guess is no. Because you can use the soap and you need something strong enough to still keep the design on. If you water down the glue . . . feels like you're just inviting the design to not last as long!

Hello, what kind of soap brand did you use? Seems like most of them do not have a flat surface to apply the decorative paper. Thank you

@Amy, Thanks you! I’m looking forward to making them. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !

I use the Ivory brand! You have to buy several: But it's not expensive and I make them for gifts and make multiples at once!

I’m not sure how this works when using the soap. Can you explain how this doesn’t come off?


Wednesday 9th of December 2020

Hi Rhonda! I'll be honest - I don't know how it doesn't come off. The soap wears away before the Mod Podge, and it works every time. I feel like it's magic and I just embrace it fully lol
