Plastic Soap Dish

(1 rating)

What You Need:

  • 1 or 2 liter plastic bottle, empty, clean and dry
  • Hole-punch
  • Scissors
  • Paint markers
  • Craft knife

 

What You Do:

  1. Help your child start the project by cutting a slit with a craft knife into the bottle at the half-way point. The slit should be large enough that your child can slide a hole punch into the bottle.
  2. Have her slide the hole punch into the bottle and punch out a hole. Then draw a straight line around the bottle matching up to either side of the punched out hole.
  3. Use a scissors to cut along the line. The hole punch should be enough area to begin cutting from.
  4. Recycle the top portion of the bottle, or set it aside for a different art project.
  5. Draw a wavy line around the top edge of the cut bottle to create a scalloped edge. Cut around the wavy line and recycle the leftover plastic.
  6. Use the paint markers to design a fun and beautiful pattern around the base of the plastic bottle, turning it into a soap dish.

Put your favorite smelling soap in your new dish while you help to save the environment!
