DIY Toothbrush Holder

We just moved into a new house and every night I hear at least one member of the family trying to find their toothbrush and/or toothpaste.  When I saw these adorable DIY Toothbrush Holders I knew I had to give them a try.

I was in search of the smooth sided canning jars, but was happy to find these glass mugs at Joann Fabrics.  I paid $1.99 for each 16oz mug, but it looks like they are now on sale for 99 cents.  Never head to Joann’s without first heading online to see what coupons are available.  Currently there is a “free shipping” offer and a 50% off one item available under the Sale section of the website.  My Coupon Savvy friend, Gina, had several Joann Fabric coupons with her that she had received in the mail.  Gina shared her extra coupons with me and I was able to save $12.49 off my purchase.  Before leaving the store, I signed up to receive future discounts by email and snail mail.  This CEO is looking forward to future savings.

Supplies for DIY Toothbrush Holders:

  • 16oz Glass Mug
  • Glass Paint Pen
  • Wet and Dry Paper-towels

Instructions for making DIY Toothbrush Holders:

  1. Remove bar code sticker from each mug.
  2. Wash each mug with warm soapy water.
  3. Allow each mug to completely dry.
  4. Prep the Paint Pens according to directions on their package.
  5. Design as you see fit.
  6. Keep a wet and a dry paper-towel on hand, just in case the design does’t go as planned.
  7. Let the designs dry completely before placing items inside.

My perfectionism was rearing its ugly head during this project, and I thought I was being really clever by using a highlighter first to map out my design. I do not recommend this strategy.  Once the paint pen and the highlighter mixed it caused the lines to blur.

Here are a few DIY toothbrush holders that were designed without the use of the highlighter.

  1. Hi excellent blog! Does running a blog like this
    require a massive amount work? I’ve absolutely no knowledge of
    computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

    Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog
    owners please share. I know this is off subject but I simply wanted to ask.
