Happy Jack-o'-Lantern Liquid Soap
By Elaine Searer on October 04, 2012
Isn't this happy jack-o'-lantern liquid soap bottle just about the cutest fall craft idea you've ever seen?
I'd love to be able to think up cute ideas like this one, but then I wouldn't need to read so many other blogs. I happened upon this idea and two other cute Halloween soap ideas at a crafting blog whose link I will share at the end of this post.
To make my jack-0'-lantern soap bottle, I bought a bottle of orange hand soap at Aldi. At Joann's I picked up a roll of sheer black ribbon and one sheet of Duck Tape. I never knew this Duck Tape by the sheet stuff even existed, but fortunately I was shopping with a friend who was able to point it out to me. Thanks, Cindy!
The hardest part of this project is removing the sticky residue that is left behind on the soap bottle after removing the labels. I used creamy peanut butter to remove the goo on my bottle.
Once the bottle is clean and dry, it's time to cut out and adhere Jack's facial features. I drew the pieces with pencil on the Duck Tape paper backing, cut them out, and stuck them on the bottle. I added a piece of sheer black ribbon around the cap, and my project was finished!
Here's my jack-o'-lantern soap bottle brightening up our bathroom!
Now you've got to check out the Spooky Soap post over at Obsessively Crafting. When you get there, you'll find two more really cute options for fall soap bottle crafts.
I may have to buy more soap just to try them all!
