November has just begun, but the C&C sisters are already running around like crazy finding crafts and recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas (and, the New Year is not too far away in our minds). Halloween was so awesome, but to us it serves as the gateway obsession for all things holiday and we are LOVING it. 😍
Prepping for the holiday season is no joke. Even if you are traveling to see family in another city or state and not actually hosting a holiday dinner at your home, what always seems to exist is a To-Do list a mile long. Well, we are here to help with that by offering up a last minute and very easy craft that will make your home smell amazing. Today we are featuring the perfect DIY Pumpkin Spice soap and you can make them in less than 10 minutes. 🤓
Ya’ll. We are so serious when we say these are the cutest little fall soaps! The good news does not stop there. They smell so divine! These little leaves and pumpkins (or whatever shape you decide to use) smell like pumpkin spice and are oh, so nice! 🥧 They will make your home smell like heaven. They also are a perfect hostess gift or something to treat your guests in the guest bathrooms. Or, place them right in the kitchen for all to enjoy!
Go ahead and fill your home with the blissful smell of Fall with these beautiful DIY Pumpkin Spice soaps. 🍂 Find our easy tutorial below!
What You Will Need
Soap Colorant (We used the yellow and red and played with the color tones in two separate batches)
Pyrex Glass Measuring Cup (or a cup/bowl that is microwave safe)
Pumpkin Spice (See recipe below to make your own like we did! Measure out about 2 Tbsp of it and store the rest.)

Step by Step
1. Melt your Soap Base: Heat up about 1 lb. of your soap base blocks in your glass measuring cup in the microwave. I suggest cutting off 4-6 blocks at a time (then cutting into smaller pieces so it melts easier). Add in more blocks from there if needed. I started with 20 seconds in the microwave, and placed it back in for 10 second intervals until it was melted all the way through.
2. Add in Soap Colorant: Once melted, add in a couple drops of your soap colorant. We did two batches — one that created a more earthy brown color, and the other a peachy orange color. Feel free to create any color you want!
3. Stir in Pumpkin Spice: Add in about 2 Tbsp. of your pumpkin spice and stir until thoroughly combined. We used our homemade pumpkin spice (see easy recipe below to easily create your own).
Pumpkin Spice Recipe
– 3 Tbsp cinnamon
– 1 1/2 tsp ginger
– 1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
– 3/4 tsp allspice
– 1/2 tsp ground cloves
4. Pour into Mold: Pour your soap into your molds and let sit for an hour until hardened. You can also place them in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
