Upcycle a Soap Pump with Washi Tape

None of you will be surprised to learn that we've been using the same "disposable" soap pump in our bathroom for about 2 years now. Once the first round of soap had finished, we took the label off but the container was really plain. I knew it needed an upgrade but I wasn't sure what to do. When Downtown tape sent me some rolls of washi tape as a thank you for a giveaway, I started to play around with it and I'm really happy with how it turned out.



Step 1: Clean it
Clean the outside of the soap pump to get any grime or soap residue off. If you are really dedicated, you might even wipe it down with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol.

Step 2: Tape it
Add washi tap stripes going around the outside of the soap pump. Add tape to the top of the pump as well being sure to line up the patterns. Use scissors to trim as needed.

Step 3: Podge it
Use Mod Podge Satin Finish to seal the tape and make it easy to wipe off later. Allow to dry completely before returning to the bathroom.

A big thank you to Downtown Tape for providing the tape for this craft. This is not a sponsored post. I received free tape from Downtown Tape as a thank you gift from them for another project. The tape is great, though! Be sure to check them out.
