Well I moved to China for a bit had a HUGE garage sale to get rid of all my stuff and the olive oil bottle was one of the items I sold in my pre-move garage sale :o( When I moved back to the states I looked all over for the company my Mom purchased my little oil bottle from and was sad to find out that they went out of business. So here I am 4 years later still missing that olive oil bottle turned into a make shift soap dispenser. What does a crafty gal do when she wants something in particular and can’t find it……..she makes one on her own!
Let the How-2 Begin
I purchased this olive oil bottle at Walmart for around $4.00. It’s been sitting in my craft room for some time so I’m not 100% sure how much I paid for it.I originally planned to hand paint a cute little pear on the bottle to match the one my Mom bought. Then I remembered, I can’t paint or draw worth a flip and needed to think of a plan B. That’s why this little guy sat in my craft room for months.
I was at good old Walmart this week and saw some French inspired Rub Ons in the craft section. Of course a big crafty light bulb appeared above my head; you know an ahhh haaaa moment!
Tip: If you decide to tackle this project be sure you find the smoothest side of the bottle. The bottle I purchased had a few small air bubbles on the sides which will interfere with the Rub On.
Center your Rub On and go to town. You will need to apply pressure and complete several strokes to make sure the Rub On sticks to the surface. You should see me over here trying to think of descriptive words to explain this step without sounding dirty ;o)
In just a few minutes you have a new handy dandy olive oil bottle or soap dispenser (however you choose to use it).
Tip: After you have pulled away the Rub On plastic use your finger to rub over the decal a few times to make sure it's stuck to the bottle.
Now I don’t have to hide our big ugly soap bottle when company comes over. Not sure how long the Rub On will last before it starts to wear off but that’s ok, the kit came with several of the same pattern so I can just redo it if I need to.
