Know a Star Wars fan? Make this fun Star Wars craft - homemade soap! Easy to make with craft store supplies and 30 minutes, these DIY soaps are perfect for gifts or party favors!


The first Star Wars movie was released when I was 2 years old so it’s safe to say that Star Wars has always been a part of my life. I remember going as a family to see the later movies and dreaming of becoming Princess Leia.

When I saw Star Wars Jell-O molds at the grocery store a few months ago, I picked up a set to make some fun crafts for the new movie.  I started brainstorming fun uses for the molds besides Jell-O.

Easy Star Wars Craft

I made homemade soap a few months ago and it was a huge success with my kids.

I knew they’d love little mini Star Wars soaps, but I wasn’t sure if the Jell-O mold would work well. Jell-O molds are hard plastic and are notorious for being very difficult to un-mold whatever is in them. I went for it anyway – and it worked!

Star Wars Craft


Homemade Star Wars Soap


Pour and melt soap – each mold used about 2 cubes of melted soap

Jell-O Star Wars Mold but honestly, I think this silicone set would be easier to get the soap out of!

Soap Dye

Essential oils for scent (I recommend Young Living) – I used rosemary and peppermint

Cooking Homemade Soap

Cut off the desired amount of soap from the big chunk o’ soap. I melted them down by 2 squares each as that seemed to fit in to each mold.  Melt the soap according to the directions on the package in a small pot.

I had a measuring cup staying warm in hot water in another pot. Once the soap was melted in the small pot, I poured it in to the measuring cup in the other pot.

Next, add the color and oils.  Quickly pour the soap in to your molds. Move fast because the soap starts to harden as soon as it’s removed from heat.

Star Wars Soap

I used yellow for C3PO and then added a little red to that batch for an orange for Chewbacca.

I rinsed everything off and started over with blue for R2D2 and Darth Vader. Then I added a little yellow to get green for Yoda and the Stormtrooper.

Let the soaps cool and set. I didn’t let them harden completely. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to remove the soap from the Jell-O mold.

Homemade kids soap

The Jell-O molds are a very stiff plastic so you have to kind of wiggle and pull, but the soap will come out. I really thing this set of Star Wars silicone molds would work easier, but you get different shapes.

You can now get the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens on digital download from Amazon!

    I have always wanted to make soap, but it’s hard to find vegan ingredients. This looks so easy and fun though.
