We bought a fixer upper house last year and completely stripped it down. I mean no room was untouched! If you’ve ever gone through the renovation process yourself, you know that finishing out the rooms is just half the battle. Since then I’ve been beautifying and personalizing each room to take it from a house to a home. For me, that means pictures, shelves, cheeky little knick knacks that speak to Tyler and I on a personal level, and sometimes DIY projects. Our guest bath to this point has been rather utilitarian. I decided to start giving it some personality and to try and make it warm and welcoming for our guests. One of the ways I did that was to add a floating shelf which I decorated with different odds and ends. When I think of bathrooms I think of baths, obviously, so I decided to make a bottle for some bath salts I had lying around to display them in a more attractive manner. This was a very easy and quick project and I love how it looks! Here is how I did it:
- Decorative glass container
- Paper flower
- Hot glue gun
- Bath Salts
You could definitely have prettier salts than epsom salts, but it’s what I had on hand. I started at the bottom of the bottle and glued the end of the twine to it. Then I began wrapping it around the bottle, gluing a small section of the twine every three or four wraps. After I reached the desired height I cut the twine and glued the end. Next, I hot glued a paper flower to the cork. Then I added the salts and added the bottle to my bathroom shelf! Here is the finished product:
My husband actually aesthetically arranged everything. I picked out what I wanted then I got confused on how to lay it out. He’s a genius, that’s all I can say. I love how this turned out and I think it adds a nice touch to the bathroom.
I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial! Have a wonderful day! Comment with pictures if you end up making this. I’d love to see what you come up with and how you use them!
