How To: Sponge Holder from a Shampoo Bottle

April 5th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

At my house we have a missing sponge issue-- you know, when the sponge gets lost among the huge pile of dishes. My roommate and I went to the store hoping to find a solution, but all we found were overpriced sponge holders. I realize $10-$20 is not a lot for some people, but when you're on a tight budget, it's too much for a silly sponge holder! I decided I would make our own holder. I had an empty shampoo bottle, so I went on Pinterest for some inspiration. When I found Make It and Love It's Holder for Charging a Cell Phone that was made from a lotion bottle, I thought, "I could hang my sponge from the faucet of the sink!" Here's how you can make your own

March 2nd, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

After posting last week's project, Upcycled Candle Holder into a Mini Easter Basket, I realized I completely skipped over St. Patrick's Day! To get some inspiration, I visited Pinterest. I found an adorable St. Patrick's Day banner tutorial from The Crafting Chicks that I loved! I especially liked the "leaves" of the shamrock that were made from hearts. Then, I remembered a post that I saw on TPcraft.com, where they made toilet paper rolls into hearts. Combining the two amazing projects, I came up with toilet paper roll shamrocks!
