Homemade Letter Soap

A very easy, cute gift that looks hard to make.

Approximate Time: 1/2 hour


  • block of clear unscented soap (for one soap, about 8 oz., depending on size)

  • dye (optional)
  • scent (optional)
  • small amount of white unscented soap
  • square/rectangular mold
  • letter molds
  • freezer
  • microwave
  • knife
  • alcohol in spray bottle
  • microwave safe container
  • Popsicle sticks


  1. Melt a small amount of white soap in the microwave, 25 seconds, mix (with Popsicle stick), repeat another 25 seconds and repeat until melted.
  2. Pour into letter mold of choice.
  3. Place mold in the freezer for about 15 minutes or until solid.
  4. Remove letter from mold.
  5. Melt about 8 oz. of clear soap (or as much needed for the square mold) in the microwave, 25 seconds, mix (with Popsicle stick), heat for 25 seconds, until fully melted.
  6. Add dye or leave as is.
  7. Add a drop of scent or leave as is.
  8. Pour into square mold.
  9. If bubbles form, spray with alcohol.
  10. Wait about 2 minutes so the soap cools a little and doesn't melt the letter, then place the letter in the center of the melted soap in the mold.
  11. Let harden for about a day.
  12. Remove from mold.
