Holiday Soap Dispensers

These holiday soap dispensers are perfect for the holidays!  They make fun, unique gifts for neighbors, leaders you serve with, visiting teachers, friends, family members, etc...  

These also make a perfect craft for your craft group since they are quite easy.
So easy, so adorable.  And you can do so many different designs with this concept.

Don't limit yourself to just use the designs shown.  Any decal we have that is small enough would work on these bottles. 

What you'll need:

1. VINYL DECAL. You can order the Christmas design on our website HERE.  You can order the love design on our website HERE. I used the 3-inch LOVE and the 4-inch Christmas.
2.  SOAP DISPENSER - You will need a liquid soap dispenser.  I like to buy ones that have fun shapes (the ones I used were Dial - the Christmas one is a foam soap dispenser).  You may want to buy these FIRST, so you can measure and see which size decal would work best for the size of bottle you have.
3.  Spray paint PRIMER for plastic items
4.  Spray paint in desired color.  I used red for the LOVE one, and white on the Christmas one.



How to make:
1. Remove labels from bottle on front and back. If the label leaves adhesive on the bottle, use WD40 or GooGone to remove it, then wash outside of bottle with warm soapy water to remove the greasy feel.  Dry off well.
2. Cover the dispenser part with masking tape to protect it while painting. Or you can remove it - I left mine on so I wouldn't spill the soap.
3. Spray the bottle with a spray paint PRIMER made for plastic items.  2 LIGHT coats is *WAY* better than one heavy coat!!  Let dry about 10-20 minutes (until it is not sticky to the touch).
4. Lightly spray with desired spray paint color. Remember - LIGHT coats are best.  Be sure to hold spray can about 10-12 inches away from soap bottle when spraying and keep the can moving from side to side.  Be sure to cover soap bottle completely with paint.
5. Allow first LIGHT coat to dry 10-20 minutes. 
6. Lightly spray again being sure to cover bottle completely.  This will probably be the last coat of paint you will need.  Let dry.
7. When paint is completely dry - at least 30 minutes in a warm room - apply vinyl lettering to bottle.
8. That's it.  Enjoy!
