I’m curious .. Do you decorate your bathroom and/or kitchen for Christmas? We do. Well, I mean, we don’t go overboard, but adding a few little Christmassy touches here and there just makes all the difference! So if you’re going to do one thing this year, get yourself a Christmas soap dispenser. Or better yet, make one! Just how cute has this turned out? And it won’t take you any time at all!
what you need for your own Christmas soap dispenser
- One of these mason dispensers. These came in a set of 2 (which was perfect as I wanted to give one away as a freebie to a follower). You could make one for the bathroom AND the kitchen (or give one away as a present!)
- An acrylic decoration that fits in the jar. I bought mine in The Range, but I suggest checking out your own local shops for a suitable one. Make sure it’s acrylic and waterproof as it’s going to be submerged!
- Some E6000
- Some small pebbles / stones (I suggest having a look at the local garden centre or The Range do these ones)
- Clear hand wash – I got mine in Savers for 89p
- Some string
- Hot glue
And this is how easy it is!
Start by taking off the lid of your mason jar
Next, I took off the little hook from the decoration by twisting it with a pair of pliers. Poor old Lucy Goose!
Grab your E6000 and add a generous amount of glue to the bottom of your ornament.
Push the ornament into the jar. Make sure you have it towards one side of the jar as you need enough space for the tube of the dispenser to fit behind it. You can see how I positioned it here:
Hold down the ornament until you’re happy with the positioning and then leave it alone. Just leave it to set for the recommended amount of time. Once it’s fully dried, add the small pebbles/stones to the bottom of your jar and fill the jar with clear soap.
When you screw the top back on be careful to place the tubing of the dispenser carefully behind your ornament. It should be glued down rock solid but be as careful as you can to avoid knocking it too much.
optional finishing touch
The next step is optional but I think it adds a bit of detail and helps it to looks “home made” (if you know what I mean). Sorry, no photos of this bit, but I hot glued some string to the side of the lid. Wrap the string around it and finish it off at the back by sticking it in place with some hot glue. Add a small ribbon (or use your string to make a bow) to the front.
Hasn’t it turned out adorable? Who said hand washing can’t be fun?
