Guest Toiletries Container with Chalkboard Labels

When we go on road trips, I always ask housekeeping for extra coffee and extra toiletries. They’re always so sweet and happily give me handfuls of each. The coffee is because one little package is never enough in a hotel room. I save the toiletries for my guests at home. We no longer have a guest bathroom, or for that matter, a guest bedroom. However, all we need do is banish Mr. Awesome to the dungeon  basement, and voila… guest room! For the guest toiletries I gather on our journeys, I found a fun, wide, pink-tinted vase someplace in the dungeon basement and discovered I could fit quite a few of the little toiletry bottles into it. Here’s how I made the labels….

What you need~

  • Sheet of Plain Stickers (I think my mama bought mine at Office Depot)
  • Flat Black Spray Paint (you can use chalkboard paint, but the .98 generic flat black is way cheaper)
  • White or Silver marker (I recommend Sharpie Brand Oil Paint Marker)

First, spray paint the entire sheet of stickers. I took a picture of mine halfway through. It’s kinda hard to see the outlines of the stickers, but you get the idea…

Next, simply use the marker to write what you like. I did a LOT of practice fails before I got some nailed its! While I was at it, I made some for my coffee canisters….

When you have the stickers just so, simply attach them to your vase. Fill with your pretty little toiletries from the sweet housekeeping people, kick your kid into the dungeon basement, and ask some friends to stay the night! You’ll be ready 😉
