Mother's Day Decorated Soap Craft

Beautifully decorated soap is a wonderful gift for Mother’s day that kids can make with adult supervision. Children can create unique, decorative soap wrappers that any Mother would love to receive on Mother’s Day using beautiful fabric and assorted embellishments.



  • Square bars of soap
  • Felt, lace or other decorative material/fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Buttons
  • Sequins
  • Beads
  • Rickrack
  • Silk flowers
  • Short straight pins with big round heads
  • Short straight pins with small flat heads
  • Glue


Help children cut the felt, lace, or other material to wrap around the soap. Wrap the material around the soap and secure the material to the back of the soap with the straight pins with the flat heads. Next, turn the soap right side up. Children can decorate the tops and sides of the soap with the flowers, ribbon, sequins. Help children attach the decorations using the straight pins with the rounded heads and glue.

It is important to note that this craft uses straight pins, so be sure to supervise this craft very carefully and help children insert the straight pins. Alternatively, use glue or glue dots.
