DIY Halloween Soap Dispenser

I previously published this post away back in 2013 and felt that it needed a bit of updating with some new images plus I added a ghost version of the DIY Soap Dispenser as well.
 
 
I had my eye on a Bath and Bodyworks’ Jack O’ Lantern soap dispenser on eBay but with shipping from America on top of the price of the dispenser meant it was over £25! Luckily someone in my work was going to America on holiday to Las Vegas, San Francisco, Palm Springs and Los Angeles (alright for some) so I asked him if he would be able to get me one while he was away. Unfortunately he was unable to get me one 🙁 as they only had Pumpkins (for Autumn, or fall if you are over the pond) rather than the Jack O’ Lanterns. So I thought that I could maybe make my own Halloween Soap Dispenser.

These are so easy to make and would be an ideal craft for the kids to do for Halloween.  If you have green liquid soap you could make that one into a Frankenstein if you don’t want to do the ghost or Jack o Lantern.
 
 

DIY Halloween Soap Dispenser

 

What you need:

Orange Coloured Soap Dispenser for a Jack O’ Lantern

White Coloured Soap Dispenser for a Ghost

Baby Oil (to remove label sticky residue)

Scissors

Black Self Adhesive Vinyl

Ribbon

 


 
 

How to make:

Remove the label from the bottle.

If there is any sticky residue, remove by rubbing baby oil with kitchen paper towel over the surface.  This should dissolve the glue.

Cut eyes and a mouth from the self adhesive vinyl and stick on to the soap dispenser.

Tie a ribbon around the neck of the bottle.

      Thank you, Pilar :)! No, sadly I won't be making Thanksgiving crafts as we don't celebrate that in the UK :(. Will be looking forward to seeing any that you might make though :).

      Hi Fee

      Thanks for dropping in by :). Thanks so much for your lovely comment, it is very simple to make and I'm sure that even the least craftiest person could do it :D.

      I bought it in Home Bargains for 89p, It's quite a big bottle and smells lovely. If you do decide to make one, I'd love to see it.
