Today I am going to show you how to turn those old soap dispensers into an adorable accessory for your sink! The best part is it is easy and inexpensive!
I made two different ones depending on what you wanted for your house. Just follow these simple steps and you are good to go!
Mason Jar Soap Dispenser
Step 1: The first thing you have to do is put a hole in the lid to put the dispenser through. To do this I hot glued the center lid in place to raise it up off the ground so it was easier to nail into. Then I just hammered nails in a circle until I had a big circle. I used pliers to bend it back to get the hole big enough.
Step 2: I put the soap dispenser in the lid and then hot glued around it to cover up the metal edges. If you have metal cutters you could trim them back but I was to lazy to track them down.
Step 3: Tuck a grocery sack into the jar to protect it while you spray paint.
Step 4: Screw the lid on and you are ready to paint. Make sure your paint is for plastic so it will stick to the dispenser with out peeling off.
Step 5: Paint away! It took a couple of coats and then you are good to go!
For the monogram dispenser keep on reading!
Monogram Soap Dispenser
Step 1: Remove the label and then use Lemon Essential Oil to remove the residue.
Step 2: Paint! This took several coats to get it all covered. Again make sure you use spray paint for plastic so it doesn’t chip or peel!
Step 3: Cut out your monogram. I had extra vinyl left over from a project so I used my Cricut to cut it out. I found 3 1/2 to be the perfect size for my dispenser. On a side note everyone thinks I labeled it S for soap so hopefully your last name does not start with an S and you will have better luck than me!!
There you go two adorable soap dispensers ready to dress up any sink!!
What DIY craft have you made lately?
