Sooooooo, Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened almost 2 weeks ago and we've already seen it multiple times. For Christmas we got Star Wars Legos, Star Wars pajamas, Star Wars beer coozies, Star Wars socks, cooked a Star Wars turkey. Okay, maybe not the turkey but you get the picture the Star Wars mania is NOT wearing off any time soon. I received a shipment of soap making supplies from ConsumerCrafts.com and I knew I was going to make DIY Star Wars soaps. Just because I CAN. And you can too!
I did a Google Hangout with Crafty Hangouts and Matthew from Matthew's Crafts where we made these soaps. It's a crazy video, as most hangouts are! Before we get into the video, here's what you'll need to make the soaps:
- Clear Glycerin Soap Base – Scored 2 Pound Block from ConsumerCrafts.com
- Essentials Soap Mold – Plain from ConsumerCrafts.com
- Star Wars Episode VI Micro Machines Deluxe Vehicle Pack Fall of the Empire
- Oven Mitts
- Glass Bowl
- Soap Fragrances (optional – I used none)
These make great party favors, stocking stuffers, or gifts for any Star Wars fan. If you have a son who does not like washing his hands or taking a bath, I am sure these soaps will help him wash his hands and bathe ALOT more. That's the only way to get the prize inside!
Here's how we made these DIY Star Wars soaps!
- Cut the glycerin soap block into cubes, following the score lines on the soap, about 3 cubes per soap block.
- Place the soap cubes into a glass bowl.
- Place the bowl of soap in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds at a time until the soap has liquified.
- Carefully remove the hot bowl from the microwave with oven mitts.
- Place a toy in each of the sections of the soap mold.
- Pour the hot soap over the toys to cover. Fill each reservoir to the top.
- Pop any bubbles on the surface of the soap.
- Allow to cool for 20 to 60 minutes.
- Pop the soap out of the mold and enjoy!
You can wrap the soaps individually in plastic bags, tying shut with a ribbon or twine. I hope you enjoyed this fun project! Stay tuned for another soap making tutorial from me later this month, when I share how to make knock off LUSH bars!
