My hands can do this --- Bathroom Toiletry Holder



Keeping our bathroom clean is very important to maintain hygiene.  Keeping our things we use everyday organized is another thing not to be disregarded. In addition, setting up even a little interior decoration can make a big difference to reflect your good style and create a nice ambience.   


BATHROOM TOILETRY HOLDER

Materials:
(1)  plastic basket container
(1)  flower foam
(1)  white and (1) red tissue paper
(4)  6-inch floral wires
(1)  long dried stick (C-curving)
(3)  artificial flowers
(6)  artificial fern leaves
(2)  artificial long branch with leaves
(1)  other artificial plant
       needle nose plier

Note: all materials are used already except for the floral wires. Dried stick came from the falling limbs of a tree. You can decide to buy new materials for this project.

Level of Difficulty - easy

Instructions:



Arranging the Floral Foam
Arrange the used floral foam inside the container horizontally. If you have to buy a new and big floral foam, cut it according to the size of the basket.


Attaching the Artificial Leaves on Dried Stick
Attach the lower end of the artificial long branch with leaves to the lower end of the long dried stick (C-curving) with a piece of 6-inch chicken wire. Do not cut the excess wire.  Tighten the wire carefully with a needle nose plier, so as not to break the wire. Do the rest with the same procedure until you reach the top. Follow the curve of the long dried stick as you attach the artificial long branch with leaves.


Attached Artificial Leaves on Dried Stick
This is how it looks like after attaching the long branch with leaves to the long dried stick. It should be curving with the shape of the long dried stick .


Tying the Wires on Basket Handle
Consider first which side of the circular handle of the basket you are going to attach the dried stick. In this case, I position the dried stick near the left side of circular handle. Then stick the lower end of the dried stick to the floral foam in a slanting position.

Move the dried stick back near the circular handle. Insert the excess wire into the holes in the center and tie it around the circular handle of the basket. Tighten the wire carefully with the needle nose plier, so as not to break it. Do the same procedure with the rest of the excess wires until you reach the last wire. Be sure the dried stick is curving with the shape of the circular handle as you attach it. Tighten the wire carefully with the needle nose plier.


Arranging the Flowers (1)
Stick the first tallest artificial flower into the floral foam near the dried stick. You can buy and choose any kind of artificial flowers you like. 


Arranging the Flowers (2)
Stick the remaining 2 artificial flowers in front of the tallest flower. The second flower must be taller than the third one. Bend the stem of the second flower a little bit to one side and the third flower to the other side.


Arranging the Flowers (3)
Stick the other artificial plant at the back of the 3 flowers. You can also buy and choose any kind of plants that can blend well with the 3 flowers.


Arranging the Flowers (4)
Stick the first of the 3 artificial fern leaves at the back of the 3 flowers. Arrange each leaf in one line near the edge of the basket.  Stick the remaining 3 artificial fern leaves in front of the flowers near the edge of the basket. Bend each fern leaf a little bit towards the front. There should be space left in the middle of the basket.

                                                                                  
Arranging the Tissue Papers 
Arrange the red tissue paper first in the middle space of the basket horizontally. Arrange the white tissue paper on top of the red tissue paper diagonally. You can buy and choose any colored tissue paper that will blend with the kind of flowers you have.


Arranging the Toiletries (1)


Arranging the Toiletries (2)
Arrange any items of your choice in the space provided inside the basket. The items you will choose will depend on the place where you intend to display the basket. In display #1, I placed a shampoo, 2 kinds of gift soap, and a conditioner. In display #2, I placed a shampoo, conditioner, a pack of small lotions, a pack of small bottles of perfumes, and make-up remover.

You can choose the best place you like to display in your own bathroom. It's a nice, unique-looking decor in your bathroom and at the same time, holds your toiletries.  You just need a little bit of creativeness and be practical especially, if you have just a small bathroom.
