Take your liter bottle of soda pop, and make sure it is all cleaned out. You don't want soda in the bottle because it will make your bags sticky!
Then measure an inch with your ruler, making sure to mark inward 1 inch.
Next, use a box cutter to begin cutting along the line you created. You’ll be doing this process on the top and the bottom of the bottle.
Now onto the fun part! Grab some paint, and a few scrapbooking alphabet stickers. Paint the plastic bottle your desired color then when it is dried and ready, place any saying you want on the bottle. I put “Bags” in glitter letters on mine :)
Finally, take a removable Command Strip, and attach it to the back of the dispenser. That way, if you ever feel like moving the dispenser about your home you can do so without damaging your walls.
Voila!

You now have an adorable plastic bag dispenser that keeps all of your bags in one place, and is super duper handy.

    Does the acrylic paint adhere that well to plastic?

    I have a fabric one but!!!!! I really like this idea and am excited to make one. And also like the idea you can customize it to fit your home in color and any design could be painted on it too. I was wondering if a person could decoupage it if a person wanted to! What do you think?

    I really like this idea. For me I think I will punch 3 holes in th top so I can hang it. I know exactly where I am hanging mine. Thank you for the idea. By the way I am a neat freak.
