Reindeer Poop Soap
The full list of materials, tools, and instructions are found in the printable tutorial card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through before starting this project to ensure that you have everything required and understand the steps and timings involved.
I’m not sure what the obsession is with poop-themed things for the holidays, but it seems to be a thing! A few years back I shared some other silly stocking stuffer ideas with the same theme:
- Silly Stocking Fillers! Snowman Poop – Free Printable Labels
- Silly Stocking Fillers! Reindeer Poop – Free Printable Labels
So this year it’s the turn of reindeer poop soap – if you’re wondering which of Santa’s reindeer it is – it’s Rudolph’s poop, because of the red nose soap on top!!
Make bars of this reindeer soap for your bathroom this Christmas – it’s certainly a unique piece of holiday decor that will definitely catch someone’s eye! Or make them as stocking stuffers or secret Santa gifts!
If you’ve never made soap before, don’t worry – it’s not to difficult as this recipe uses “melt and pour” soup that can be melted in the microwave – you just need to add coloring and scent to it.
Materials & Tools Used in This Craft
For your convenience, I’ve linked any specialized materials and tools needed for this craft to Amazon below. Full weights and measures need are in the tutorial card at the end of this post.
- Clear Melt and Pour Soap – plenty to make lots of soaps!
- Gingerbread Scented Oil – this is part of a set of holiday fragrances – why not experiment with other scents?
- Brown Mica Soap Colorant – part of a set of colors, which means you can try out different color soaps too!
- Red Soap Colorant – or you could use red mica from the set above if you have that.
- Red Cosmetic Glitter – to add some sparkle to Rudolph’s nose!
- Poop Soap Mold – there is a shaped mold for everything! This one is officially a cake mold, but it works for soaps too!
- Small Round Soap Mold – to make the red nose!
- 3 Microwave-safe Measuring Cups – it’s best to have a set of tools just for making soap
- Spray bottle of 99% Isopropyl Alcohol – spraying this on the poured soap helps to get rid of surface air bubbles, cleans molds before pouring, and helps different soap elements stick together. Also known as rubbing alcohol.

How Do I Make Reindeer Poop Soap?
Just check out the how-to card below with full materials, tools, instructions and demonstration photos. You can print the card out too (don’t worry, the pics don’t print to save your ink!).
- 1 lb / 450g clear glycerine melt and pour soap base
- Red cosmetic glitter
- Red soap colorant liquid
- Gingerbread scented oil
- Brown mica soap colorant
- Sharp knife
- Spoon or whisk
- Poop soap mold
- Small round soap mold
- 3 microwave-safe measuring cups/bowls/jug
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
- Weigh the soap and cut into cubes with a sharp knife - there will be lines on the block of soap that you can use as a guide.
- Add 2 cubes of the clear soap base to one microwave-safe container. Melt in 30-second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted.
- Add 2 drops of gingerbread scented oil, a pinch of glitter, and 1-2 drops of red coloring to the melted soap. Thoroughly stir the soap mixture to combine. If the color is not red enough, add a tiny amount more and stir to the desired shade.
- Spray inside 6 of the round soap mold cavities with rubbing alcohol, then carefully pour the red soap mixture into them until it reaches the top. Spray with alcohol to remove bubbles. Allow to harden completely, or about an hour.
- When hardened, gently pop the soap balls from the mold and set aside.
- Add the remaining soap cubes to a microwave safe container. Melt in 30-second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted.
- Add 1-2 teaspoons of brown mica soap colorant and 1 teaspoon of gingerbread scent to the melted soap and stir well to combine. Add more colorant and scent if required.
- Spray poop mold with rubbing alcohol and add one red soap ball to each cavity of the poop mold. You will see each soap ball has a flat end. You want to place the balls into the mold, rounded side down.
- Spray the red soap balls with rubbing alcohol. This helps the soap ball and brown soap to adhere to one another. Carefully add the brown soap mixture into the mold until it reaches the top. Spray with alcohol to remove bubbles.
- Leave the soaps to harden overnight before carefully removing from the mold.
- Place in gift box or bag to give as a gift or store in an airtight container until ready to use.
