Wine bottle crafts: DIY soap dispenser

Wine bottle crafts are really popular right now - if you are on Pinterest  (like we are...all.the.time!) you've probably seen everything from wine bottle lights to wine bottle tiki torches.   I am not a big wine drinker, although with all the cool wine bottle ideas out there, I almost wish I was. 

This week my husband handed over a wine bottle (he's finally learned never to throw glass jars and bottles out knowing I will re-purpose them) and I quote said, "Here, can you make something cool with this?" Um, ok..

So it sat on my counter for a few days waiting for me to remove the label and figure out something to use it for.  As I knelt down to grab my bottle of dish soap from under the sink, the bottle caught my eye.  I instantly decided I would turn it into a pretty DIY soap dispenser.

I kid you not, about 5 minutes later my wine bottle soap dispenser was sitting pretty on my counter.  This has to be one of the easiest wine bottle craft ideas around. 

I started by removing the back label.  I decided to keep the front label for a little extra character. Because I did I painted a layer of mod podge matte over it to seal it and protect it from water.  A little of the mod podge got on the glass so I just wiped it off quickly with a paper towel. You don't have to, but if you don't remove the excess the glass that's covered with mod podge will look cloudy and smudgy when it dries.


I dug through my kitchen junk drawer and found this cork bottle top pourer thingy and it fit perfectly on the bottle.  If you don't happen to have a win cork bottle pourer stuffed in the back of a drawer, you can buy them for a few dollars on Amazon. 

 
Obviously, I poured the liquid soap into the bottle before I capped it.  The soap had a hard time getting through the top, so I just added a little water to thin the soap and now it pours out great.

That's it - instant wine bottle soap dispenser.

As always, thanks for stopping by 2IY.  If you like what you see we'd love for you to share it by pinning it.
