Molds are an easy way to make your project festive. Just pour in handmade soap and let it flow into the details. You can bump up the holiday cheer with fragrance oils, colorants, and additives too. Then the bars are ready to gift! Find everything you need to get started below.

Gingerbread Soap Mold

This mold is perfect for holiday gifts! It's made of silicone, so it's flexible and easy to unmold the soap. You can fill in the gingerbread man details, or leave them plain. Each cavity holds 3 ounces.

As for the design, that's totally up to you! Classic gingerbread colors and scents are always a great option, but feel free to get creative.

We went with classic for this Gingerbread Man Soap. It's made with white and clear melt and pour base and scented with Gingerbread Cookie Fragrance Oil. The notes of orange, clove, cinnamon, rum, and vanilla are a perfect complement for the bronze, red, and white color palette.

Snowflake Soap Mold

If you're a fan of icy colors and scents, give this mold a try. It's also made of silicone and easy to use. Each bar weighs 4.2 ounces, so it fits perfectly in your hand. 

This mold also has details you can fill in with soap. They are a bit smaller, so we recommend a dropper and plenty of 99% isopropyl alcohol to help it flow into the design easily.

We show you how to do just that with the Snowflake Soap Kit. The details are filled in with blue melt and pour and the base is a shimmery white. There are enough supplies to make 8 bars that you can gift, or you can gift the kit itself to your favorite maker!
