Simple Halloween Soap Dispenser

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing a super simple way to turn an ordinary soap dispenser into something boo-rific! I shared this on my friend, Mandy’s blog last week and I thought you might enjoy it too.

I started with a bottle of Dial Gold hand soap. This was 88¢ at Walmart:


I peeled off the labels. They will not likely peel off and leave a nice clean smooth surface. But, I used De-solv-it citrus scented adhesive remover to remove the residual adhesive, which took all of two minutes. (I’ve heard you can also use Pam cooking spray or lighter fluid, but I have not tried either.)

Next I taped off a rectangle using Frog Tape and added letter stickers to spell out “BOO”.

Then I spray painted the surface with Rustoleum spray paint in gloss black:

I allowed it to dry and then removed the tape and letters.

When the soap runs out, just refill it!

Make this super simple boo-riffic soap dispenser for your next Halloween party!

Super simple, right? Perfect if you have a Halloween party coming up! Your guests will love it!

This might be it for my Halloween posts.

    • Thanks, Lindsay! You’re right, special soaps can be expensive. I already had all of the supplies for this on hand, so almost free. Those are the best kinds of projects! 🙂

    • Thanks, Julie! The spider is actually a hair clip I used last year with my costume. I bought it, but I’m not sure where? It was the perfect accessory for this shot. 🙂


  1. […] Add a little Holiday cheer to your Halloween week with this BOO themed soap. These would make cute little gifts for loved ones. I would be tempted to make them in hand sanitizers and hand them out the kids in the street. Would that be too mean?  Full tutorial can be found here. […]
