I chose to monogram a lotion pump. Sounds dull I know, but wait until you see it later. Smelling good is a priority, just like the next girl, but I also like things to be pretty and unique. We all know that when it comes to purchasing lotion it's tough to find a bottle that is really appealing to the eye, and also smells good. I know, I know #girlproblems. What can I say, Lotion Pumpin' aint easy!
Anyways, I wanted to make something that I could leave out on my vanity or bathroom counter and not feel like I needed to hide it under the sink. Lord knows I would never find it again if I put it under there. Thats where all the other lotions and beauty chotchkies go to die. I couldn't bare another fatality.
THE CHALLENGE: I gave myself the challege of doing a D.I.Y at the cost of $5 or less, so I headed straight to my local dollar store to find the perfect container to put my lotion in. Pickins' were slim, but I managed to do it at the total cost of $4.80 with tax (including the decal of course). Well anywho, here is what the final product looked like. ENJOY!
Junky DIY: Monogram Lotion Pump
|This is what the decal looked like when I first opened the envelope and the GS Monogram business card|
|The "lotion pump" aka soap dispenser I found at the dollar store. I cleaneed the surface before I placed the decal on the pump|
|I peeled the backing off the decal and then I centered the decal in the middle pressing firmly|
|Then I used something hard (that's what she said) to press all the letters onto the surfce of the pump|
|Then I gently peeled back the top layer of the decal|
|All done peeling|
|Then I went for the blow dryer to make sure that puppy stays put.|
|I applied heat to the decal for about 30 seconds|
|Tadaaaaaaa!!!! The final product! Hope you try this at home.|
