I saw a post about how to eliminate those times in the bathroom...."unmentionables" from another blogger and for the life of me I can't find the post of it or who did it. I'll search high and low and if I find it, I'll add a link to their site. It was such a cute post, I couldn't resist!
This was a 3 minute DIY project. It cost me $2 to do it and I loved the idea. I've always known that matches would take the smell (ahem, told ya) out of a bathroom. I visited a home once that had a pack of matches on the back of the commode and that particular night I was happy to see it. I have one of those stomachs, if you know what I mean.
So...here's a simple DIY project that your guests (if they're like me) will love to see in your bathroom. A box of matches displayed is okay....but this is a much better idea! Afterall, bloggers are mostly about decorating and being crafty, right?! Someone had to think this one up!
This is what I did. I went to Dollar Tree and found the cutest votive glass and a box of matches. You cut the striking strip off the box of matches and tape it on the votive. I taped it on the bottom, (update! I moved it to the back of the votive) so it wouldn't be seen. I hope my guests will turn the votive over and see the striking strip! Then it needed to me a decorative touch. I took this DIY project a step further. I needed some sort of ribbon...but I wasn't at Walmart to buy it that very minute...sighs...I'm very inpatient! So...I started searching through the ribbon I had...nothing I tell you would match....then I saw a gift bag with a black, fairly thick string, removed it and tied it around the votive. That was getting better, but still not enough for me. Then I thought of some scrapbooking paper that my daughter had been working with the night before and she was trashing what was left of this beautiful black & white sheet. I cut a section off and taped it to the votive under the string. PERFECTION!
Here's the pictures!
Enough toilet talk! Go make one! You know you wanna!
Found the site that I orginally got this idea from! Check it out!
