Pretty Dish Soap Bottle

Wash Your Dishes With Something Pretty!Not many of us love washing dishes, but it might make it a little more pleasant when your dish soap bottle sitting on your sink counter top is as pretty and cheerful as this one is! Roll up your sleeves and lets get to work!
We got the inspiration for this idea from our Decorative Hand Soap here. We love being able to reuse our olive oil and lemonade bottles for another useful purpose around the house. The bottles are so pretty, they have to be used many times over!
Materials You Will Need:

Dish soap. Glass bottles. Silk flowers. Ribbon.

                                            Pull the silk flowers off of the flower stem.
                                            Poke the flowers into the bottle.
                                            Pour dish soap into the bottle.
                   Tie ribbon onto the bottle and add a flower to the ribbon for decoration.

                                                      Safety Suggestion:
Glass can be very slippery when wet. Add soap to that and well, accidents can happen. We suggest: Wear rubber gloves when washing dishes {need to protect those hands} and use a wet dish rag to handle the bottle when you need to use soap. We find the wet dish rag gives a better grip, less or no slipping. Also use two hands when pouring the soap.

Isn't it just pretty to look at! Match up the colors to work in your kitchen. We used red and yellow in ours.
We hope we have inspired you to create a pretty sink area for yourself so those domestic tasks might be a little more joyful to complete!                     
                                                                    Remember, keep it Homespun!

                                                            Blessed is he who has regard for the weak;
                                                            the Lord delivers him in times of trouble.
                                                           Psalm 41:1
Homespun With Love
