Christmas Sticker Soap Pump

I’ve said before and I’ll repeat it often – I *love* Pinterest and blogs for inspiration!  So much creativity that everybody  shares and then the not as creative types like me can recreate and enjoy with our families.

This particular item I’ve seen time and again and I finally took the 10 minutes – I kid you not – to sit down and make one.  I like it enough that I’ll likely do one for every season.

A Christmas soap pump!  So easy peasy and FAST to make.  I used the big box store brand of hand soap and peeled off the front and back label.  Next a bit of Goo Gone took off the remaining bits of glue so that there was a clean bottle to work with.

I used stickers with a clear background, but I don’t know that it’s any kind of requirement.  And last a jaunty bow around the neck.  I think I would prefer ribbon a bit less wide, but this is what I had in Christmas colors and didn’t want to buy any more.  You can barely tell in the photo above, but I also put a star sticker on the top of the pump.

Ta da!  Super fast and it makes me smile every time I go to wash my hands.

Now to watch for more 50% off sticker sales and get ready for the next season!
