Is the soap you keep at your sink an afterthought? Last month, I realized I’d spent all this time updating my kitchen, with cute DIY decor and freshly painted cabinets, only to notice that my soap dispenser was still the ugly bottle the soap came in at the store. It looked completely out of place and made me feel a little embarrassed to see when compared to my other lovely kitchen decor. I went on the hunt to make some DIY soap dispensers for both my kitchen and my bathrooms. I was thrilled to find some amazingly cute and creative ideas, so I wanted to share the best ones with you. If you need an easy DIY gift for Christmas, these clever DIYs will fit the bill nicely. Make a few for yourself and a few to give. Happy crafting!
