As your aware Im a fan of unusal decor, and working in bar I used to come accross some interesting looking liqour bottles. I started to collect them with the idea that one day I could do something crafty with them, on a sleepless night trawling through the internet I came accross some inspiration, and here’s what I ended up doing…
A GLITTERY JACK DANIELS SOAP DISPENSER!!
Here’s a few simple instructions on how I did it…
first and foremost, find a bottle you like! Id advise you to go for a slighty smaller bottle rather than a 70cl bottle like myself, it makes the next step much easier. Make sure it’s a screw top bottle, most have a universal size that the majority of tops can fit on to. Give it a thorough wash inside and out, as later you will be filling it with either handsoap or bath soak.
The next stage is glitter, and lots of it!
Choose any colour you fancy, I actually mixed alot of different colours togther so it when the light catches the bottle multiple colours are reflected! You will also need glue, I went for modgepodge you can buy it from any good craft store or shops online such as ebay and amazon.
From here you will need to have a clean surface, preferably covered over with some sort of plastic, this makes it much easier to clean up, because glitter GETS EVERYWHERE! Now your ready to apply the glue to your bottle of choice, I applied with a paintbrush, but do not use a good one, as glue never reallys comes of it properly and it wont be much use to you after that.
Start by applying the glue thickly in sections, this makes it easier to hold without getting to messy, once a section is done, simply sprinkle over your glitter making sure to cover each section without leaving any gaps. Reapeat unitl your bottle is covered completely!
Next you will need to seal your bottle so glitter isn’t constantly rubbing off onto other surfaces, I chose to use…
Spray it on evenly and leave to dry!
All thats left to do is find a dispenser top you wish to use, you can take them from other handsoaps or you can buy them individually online! Most tops will fit perfectly on top of your bottle, however if you chose to go for a taller bottle at the beginning you may find it difficult to find one with a long attachedment, that pumps the liquid from the bottom of the bottle.
Other than that VOILA a unquie soap dispenser to use in your home or to make as quirky gifts!!
