Creative Ways to Wrap Homemade Soaps


Beautiful, homemade soaps deserve equally beautiful packaging. Whether you want the packaging to look rustic, elegant or funky, many creative ideas are available. Just as the options for making the soap vary widely, so do the packaging ideas. Taking the extra time to wrap homemade soap transforms it into a customized gift fit for anyone.


  • Choose the material for wrapping based on how you want the package to look. For example, if you want a funky package, you might choose fabric with a crazy pattern. Wrapping materials to consider include fabric, scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, tissue paper, lace, brown craft paper, parchment paper, tulle, cellophane or even a bandanna. Browse craft stores for inspiration when looking for material options.

    Wrap the homemade soap in the material as you would a present. Cut the material into a piece large enough to cover the entire soap. Wrap it and use tape to hold the material in place or gather the material and tie it with ribbon, string, etc., before adding embellishments.


  • Another option is to use pre-made containers to hold the soaps. Small cardboard boxes used for favors work well depending on the size and shape of the soap. Decorate boxes to match your desired theme for the package. Organza bags, cellophane favor bags, gift bags and other small bags or pouches also work well for the containers. These options make the wrapping process simple because you just place the soaps inside and decorate.


  • Add the final embellishments to complete the presentation of the homemade soaps. Ribbons, raffia, twine or strips of material tied around the bars of soap add a nice touch, while holding the wrapping in place. A similar option is to cut strips of card stock to wrap around the bar. Tape the ends at the back to create a card-stock label band around the soap.

    Additional embellishments customize the homemade soap packaging even further. A label card cut from card stock is easily attached with a length of ribbon.

    If you want to add more value to the soap, wrap it with another gift such as a soap dish or small basket.
