Personalized Hand Sanitizer

posted in: make it | 2

Big S has finished up his first week of school.  I wanted to send in a fun little back to school gift.  Hand sanitizer is on the optional section of the school supply list.  After being a teacher for ten years, I know how hard it can be to get optional school supplies so we always try to send in a couple of the items on the list.  Instead of just sending in the plain old bottle of hand sanitizer, I decided to dress it up!

Start with one bottle of hand sanitizer and peel off the labels.


Create your vinyl letters and decorations.  I kept it easy and just did a J for the teacher’s last name and circles for decoration.  (A special thanks to E for letting me borrow her Cricut.  I can’t wait to get one of my own soon!)


Place the letter in the center of the bottle.


Add your decorative elements.


Don’t forget to decorate the back of the bottle!


Tie a matching ribbon around the neck of the bottle.


Yay!  A fun, easy, and inexpensive Back to School gift!  This is also a great way to dress up inexpensive soap in your bathroom or kitchen!

I love these examples of other ways to decorate hand sanitizer bottles:
