Halloween Soaps

Remember when I made this cute little gift for Michael’s teacher?  Well I am back at it again, only this time I made some cute hand soaps for our house!  This is so easy and fun and is a functioning decoration!

Items Needed

  • Hand Soaps (Orange, Purple, White or Clear)
  • Scrapbooking stickers or Vinyl for Silhouette/Cricut

First I found these soaps at Wal-Mart.  Each were only $0.88 or $0.94 each!  I removed the labels from the front and back of the soaps.   If any of the sticky goo is left behind, just soak a paper towel in vinegar and let it rest on the goo for about 10 minutes and then scrape it off.

Next, I found some Halloween Scrapbooking stickers at Hobby Lobby.  If you have a Silhouette or Cricut you can use those to make your designs instead of the stickers.  If you use stickers, just be sure you get the ones that have clear backgrounds.

Then I simply placed the stickers!  You can add a bow around the neck of the pump also but it would just get untied or destroyed with my boys,  so I chose to leave it off!  I used a black cat and star for the purple soap.  I couldn’t find any pumpkin face stickers so I used this cute haunted house sticker for the orange soap.

This one might be my favorite.

  I even added a little spider to the pump top!

If you have a Silhouette/Cricut you could make the orange one a pumpkin and cut out a vinyl face, the white one a ghost face and you could also get a green hand soap (like cucumber melon) and make that into Frankenstein!  There are so many cute options and depending on your tools and what stickers/soaps are available to you, you can totally customize this project to what works for you!

Simple, cute and functional!

Personalized Teacher’s Gift

I got this fabulous idea from Mostly Food and Crafts.  Genius and so simple.  LIke I have whined about a few times before, I don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette so I just used some scrapbooking stickers again.

I pulled the front and back labels off the bottles of hand sanitizer.  I have found, the Germ-X brand’s stickers remove the best!  Note: If you do get some sticky residue left behind, simply soak a cotton ball or piece of paper towel in vinegar and allow to sit on the sticky spot for about 5-10 minutes and then wipe off!  The vinegar breaks up the glue.

According to Michael’s welcome letter, his teacher goes by “Mrs. H.” so I applied the stickers and Wah-Lah!  Whole project took less than 5 minutes for me and now Michael has a cute, practical, gift for his teacher on the first day of school!
