I made this soap dispenser from an empty hand sanitizer bottle from work. I work as a massage therapist and we go through hand sanitizer like crazy so I like to rescue the bottles to pretty them up to resuse at home or to give away. I'm in love with Gil Elvgren's pinup girls so I used a one of his reproductions from an old "one-a-day" calendar. Since I planned on using this bottle in the bathroom, I thought this picture of the pinup girl in a robe with a towel wrapped over her hair was perfect for this bottle.
Empty bottle (pump is optional)
Artwork or whatever picture you want
Glue (I used Elmer's)
tweezer (for the gems)
2. Cut your artwork to size.
Depending on how much glue you used, it may need a few hours (or overnight) to dry. Once it is completely dry, put one more coat of Mod Podge over the art and gem stones. This last layer is optional but is suggested if you're using the bottle as a soap dispenser. The Mod Podge won't make your artwork waterproof but multiple layers will help to keep the artwork from being "melted" by any water splashing onto the bottle. The final layer will also help the gems to stay put (unless pried off).
If you do plan on dispensing soap, make sure your artwork and gems do not go to the bottom edge of the bottle in case your bottle is standing in a puddle of water.
Let me know if you make your own as I would love to see yours!
