Melt & Pour Soap Making: Harvest Turkey Soaps

Thanksgiving Melt & Pour Soap Turkey Table Place Cards

Mold Market's Turkey Mold is a perfect match for a Thanksgiving table? What, you say? Soap at a dinner table? YES!!!

These soaps are ideal favors for dinner guests while also serving as place cards at the table. Purchase mini ears of indian corn at the local market. Rest each soap in front of an ear of corn. I will shrink wrap the soaps beforehand and use MS Publisher to print the guest name on the belly of each turkey.

You can also make a table centerpiece using the turkey soaps. Insert a piece of floral foam in a decorative bowl and cover with floral moss. Shrink wrap each soap and insert a wooden skewer into the bottom of the wrapped soap. Arrange mini ears of Indian corn and faux Fall leaves in the bowl. Insert skewered soap into the arrangement.

The possibilities are endless. If you have small children attending your Thanksgiving feast, why not pre-pour these turkeys in plaster paris. You will want to do this a few days ahead to ensure that the plaster dries well and is ready for painting.

Set up a painting station for the little peeps using tempera paints (or our GoPlanet EarthTone Liquid Gels) and assorted paint brushes. They will love personalizing their own Thanksgiving turkey while dinner is being prepared.

Have some 4 x 2 x 9" cello bags and twist ties on hand for the kids to take home their finished project. Thanks to Gabby for pouring up these turkey soap samples. She did a great job!
