Halloween is the time of year when everyone gets creative
. Kids are constructing their own costumes and many of us are busy making our homes look spooky for the trick or treaters, or even a Halloween party.
But as fun as this holiday can be, it can be a bit stressful to get everything ready, especially if you have little ones. Many of us will need to find time in our day to wind down amidst the chaos.
Not to worry! I have a special homemade bubble bath recipe that’s perfect for Halloween. You can make a bottle for yourself, but this recipe also makes a fantastic Halloween party favor!
This all natural bubble bath recipe can be made with just a few ingredients, and maybe a trip to the arts and crafts store if you want to make your bottles look spooky — and cute.
Creepy Mummy DIY Bubble Bath Bottles
Here’s how you prepare the bubble bath bottles — but feel free to skip this part if you don’t want to jazz up the outside.
For the bottle, you’ll need these things from the DIY craft store:
- Muslin, gauze, OR cheesecloth
- Mod Podge OR watered down Elmer’s School Glue
- Label stickers
- Small plastic bottles (one for each guest)
Now that you have all of your supplies together, the first thing you’re going to do is tear the muslin, gauze, or cheesecloth into several long strips. Dip each strip, one at a time, in the Mod Podge or watered down glue and wrap them around the homemade bubble bath bottles. Now, they’re mummified!
While the adhesive dries, now’s the time to design the label! If you’re talented with graphic design, try using the computer to design the label for an even spookier effect. Once the glue is dry, stick the labels on each of the bottles.
“Mummy Time” DIY Bubble Bath
Now you’re ready to make your homemade bubble bath! You will need:
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup liquid castile soap (unscented)
- 2 Tablespoons glycerin
- A few drops frankincense essential oil
In a large bowl, slowly add the liquid castile soap, glycerin, and frankincense to the water.
No need to mix — pour into the bottles and you’re done! If your guest list is large, you may need to make multiple batches. It’s a fun project, so why not get the kids to help?
