Iâ€™m sure by now you are probably baffled and have questions about making these Spider Sack Mini Soaps. The good news is, making these soaps is no more complicated than making any of our other soap recipes.
How much glycerin do you need?
For my spider soap, I use around 0.5 lbs of glycerin to make 15 pieces of soap. Then you need to cut the soap into 1-inch cubes which you will then melt using a microwave-safe spouted measuring cup.
Where to get the spider models?
The spider models are available on amazon. A box of 300 pieces will set you back around $10 which is pretty affordable. Additionally, these models are durable, non-toxic, and do not deform which means they can be re-used a couple of times.
Can we add fragrance to the soap?
Yes, we can add fragrance to the soap. However, note that most fragrances will slightly change the color of your soap. It is advisable to test the color of your fragrance on a sample before adding it to the whole batch.
How do you get the soap out of the mold?
As long as you use this silicone soap mold, you will be able to just pop the soaps right out of the mold once they have set.
What other creepy Halloween models are available?
There are a lot of mini creepy models you can consider for Halloween soap making. They include bats, scorpions, bugs, and creepy eyeballs. Another spooky idea would be to use the glow-in-the-dark mini models for your soap. Pretty spooky, right?
The addition of itty bitty spiders makes this soap super spooky! This DIY soap recipe will surely wow your guests, and maybe even creep them out a bit, before they realize the spiders are fake!
