10 Beautiful DIY Soap Recipes for Use and Decor

If you’re into do-it-yourself projects, then you have probably tried making homemade soap by now. If not, it should definitely be up next on your list. There is an abundance of amazing DIY soap tutorials online that not only smell great but look great, too.

In a bathroom, pretty soap bars are some of my favorite things to decorate and stage with. They do double-duty as an item that’s both functional and stylish. You can gather them in a dish, bowl or apothecary jar for some simple decor that will make your bathroom instantly feel more luxurious.

Instead of buying soap bars at the store, why not try your hand at making some of your own for a truly custom look? Here are 10 homemade soap recipes that are simple and beautiful.
