When you're ballin' on a budget like us and you love to make things, it's so fun when you find the perfect solution to your needs where it literally cost less than $5 to make and you no longer have soap scum on your countertop. I'm totally in love with this cute little soap stand and hopefully you will be too once you see how easy and cheap it is to re-create! We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
-glass stick candle holder -glass saucer (make sure you get a saucer/plate that will be a sufficient size for your candle holder) - E6000 adhesive - Rustoleum Painter's Touch Satin Wildflower Blue *Note: I put that this project only cost me $2 because I already had the E6000 and spray paint on hand. If you were to have to purchase all supplies, your total cost would be roughly $10.
STEP 1: Apply E6000 to candle stick First, I applied E6000 to the top edge of my candle stick holder. I put a generous portion but not too much because I didn't want the glue to be a mess everywhere. This glue is really amazing. If you haven't used it before, this will soon become your best friend. *Feel free to use a different item for your stand, such as a wine glass, martini glass or something of the sort. I used a candle stick holder because the glass was thicker and seemed more sturdy.
STEP 2: Adhere candle stick holder to saucer You can do this step however you see is best, but I flipped my saucer on it's face and adhered the candle stick holder to the middle of the saucer (again, the saucer being face down). I let it set overnight to ensure that the E6000 was dry.
STEP 3: Spray paint everything The next day, I spray painted my soap stand with it being still upside down, then flipped it over once it was dry and painted the top side.
I love how this cute little soap stand came out! I've been thinking to myself lately that I need a soap dish but never think about it when I'm out and about running errands. To me, this is even prettier and it's big enough that I can add a towel or 2 different soaps (pump and bar) for display when I have guests over. What I find so cool about this project too is that you can make it to fit your personality...get funky with it! Paint the saucer a different color than the stand, add polka dots, paint strips, have fun and make this soap stand a topic of conversation at your next gathering.
