But there are plenty of excuses (if you need any) you can pick from to make these Monster Eyeball Halloween Soaps! Place them in strategic places in your bath room to get into the spirit of Halloween. Or give them as a gift to the host of your next Halloween party.

They even make a great candy alternative for trick or treaters!

And because they’re made using a melt and pour soap base, they couldn’t be easier to make!

The name gives it away. All you have to do is melt the soap base using the double boiler method or in the microwave and than you can pour it in whatever shape you want!

Or in our case, cut out any shape we want. Because we’ll be using a specific technique to create the eyes of these Halloween soaps.

Whenever I can I like to use the microwave to melt or make things. I know a lot of people love to use the microwave to melt their soap base. But I find it a little hard not to overheat the soap.

That why I always go for my trusty double boiler insert when I’m using melt and pour soap.

Start with the white base. Then the colors, and end with the black pupils. That way you only have to clean out the double boiler insert before you start to melt the clear melt and pour soap.

I made a cute set of green and blue eyes, but imagine all the different colors and shapes you can make. Turn them into bloody red eyeballs, or go for a black cat eye.

Once you’re done shaping the eyes from the white melt and pour soap base, you can carefully place them in whatever mold you like and fill in the rest with the clear melt and pour soap base.

The color of the eyes did bleed a teensy bit when you pour the hot soap on top. I think it adds to the effect!

I like how the eyes seem to float in the clear melt and pour soap. But you can also add a drop of coloring to this soap base. Imagine how the eyes would look floating in a clear red soap!

And here’s a tip to get the best finish: when you see bubbles appear on the surface of your soaps, spray them with rubbing alcohol. The bubbles will pop and you’ll be left with a smooth looking top.

How To Make Halloween Soaps

With this easy step by step tutorial you can create your own Monster Eyeball Soaps!

Instructions

  1. Melt about 1/2 cup (2.5 oz) of white melt and pour soap base in the microwave on a low setting for 30 seconds. Or use the double boiler method.
  2. Once melted pour the soap onto a clean, dry plate. When the soap feels dry and cool to the touch gently pull it off in one piece. Turn it over so the smooth side is facing up.
  3. Use a round tool (a glass, vase, cake cutting tool, ...) to cut out a round shape.
  4. Divide the rest of the white melt and pour soap base into 3 batches. Melt the first batch and a add a bit of color. Repeat step 3 with a smaller round cutting tool.
  5. Repeat step 4 with a different color.
  6. Repeat again but now adding black coloring. Use an even smaller cutting tool for this.
  7. Start assembling the eyes! Press down all the layers lightly with your fingers and place them into the soap molds.
  8. Melt the clear melt and pour soap base. Once melted take your pour on top until the molds are filled.
  9. Optional: spray the top of the soaps with rubbing alcohol to break up the bubbles.
  10. Wait 2 to 3 hours or until the soaps have cooled down and are ready to use.
