Introduction

Decorating your bathroom can be a fun way to add some personality and pizzaz to an often overlooked room. One easy DIY project is to make a bedazzled toilet paper roll holder to jazz up your toilet paper dispenser. With just a few simple materials, you can create a glamorous and one-of-a-kind holder that will make your bathroom a little more fancy.

What You’ll Need

To make a bedazzled toilet paper holder, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Toilet paper holder – This can be a basic metal or plastic holder that fits your existing toilet paper mount. Make sure it’s clean before decorating.

  • Acrylic jewels, rhinestones, or sequins – These come in all shapes, sizes and colors to match your style. Choose a color palette that goes with your bathroom.

  • Craft glue – An all-purpose craft glue that dries clear and is safe for most surfaces.

  • Foam brush – For spreading the glue smoothly and evenly.

  • Scissors – For cutting any embellishments.

  • Newspaper – To cover your work surface for easy cleanup.

Directions

Follow these steps to make your own dazzling toilet paper holder:

Prepare the Holder

  1. Disassemble the toilet paper holder and remove any existing rolls or spindles.

  2. Wash and dry the holder thoroughly to remove any dirt or residue. This allows the glue to adhere properly.

  3. Spread out newspaper over your work surface for easy cleanup.

Decorate with Dazzling Embellishments

  1. Plan out your design. Place the jewels, sequins and rhinestones on the holder to visualize placement and get creative with patterns or designs before gluing.

  2. Use the foam brush to apply a thin layer of craft glue to the area where you want to place an embellishment.

  3. Use tweezers or your fingers to pick up each jewel, sequin or rhinestone and gently press it into the glue. Apply gentle pressure for 20-30 seconds.

  4. Continue gluing embellishments, one at a time, until the holder is fully decorated. Wait for each piece to set before moving onto the next.

  5. Let the bedazzled holder fully dry for several hours, or overnight, before reassembling and putting back in your bathroom.

Add Finishing Touches

Once the holder is dry and reassembled on your bathroom wall, you can add any final touches:

  • Display a decorative toilet paper roll like one with a patterned design.

  • Tie a ribbon around the holder neck for extra flair.

  • Add bedazzled embellishments to the toilet seat cover, soap dispenser, trash can or other bathroom accessories to tie it all together!

Tips

  • Choose embellishments in your favorite colors or to match your bathroom’s color scheme.

  • Mix different sizes and shapes of jewels, sequins and rhinestones for visual interest.

  • Glue embellishments in a pattern, like polka dots, swirls or alternating colors.

  • If the surface is curved, bend embellishments gently to help them conform to the shape.

  • Allow plenty of drying time for a strong hold.

So sparkle up your bathroom with a glamorous bedazzled toilet paper holder! This easy craft adds luxury and personality for very little cost.
