31 Days of Halloween - Day 3 - Halloween Hand Soap




It's day 3 of Smeared and Smudged Forum's 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop! 
Below are all the fabulous bloggers:

Here's an easy Halloween upcycle project - Eye of newt hand soap! Dig out you favorite Halloween papers, and embellishments and create a one of a kind home accent!

Materials:
Soap pump bottle
Aleene's Collage Paudge Matte or Glossy

Decorative paper
Halloween ephemera
Gems
Paint brush
Scissors



Remove the label from a soap pump.
Measure the bottle and cut decorative paper to go all the way around.
Paint the bottle and the back of the paper with Collage Paudge and attach the paper.
Immediately coat the outside of the paper with the collage medium.
If your bottle is not straight up and down you may have to do some clipping an overlapping.
Smooth as much as possible.
Add paper embellishments in the same way.
I wanted the bat wing to stand out, so I coated the back of it to seal it.
Glue on the rest of the embellishments and allow to dry.

  6. I love your soap dispenser - although if I try it I'll make sure the bottle is perfectly straight up and down cause it look like a lot of extra work for your shaped one. So Cute!!
