Tooth Paste Dispenser Cover-UP!

 We all probably have accured quite the washi tape collection. I know I am well on my way....

And it doesn't help that I KEEP finding ways to use it. I took my kids to Walmart tonight to make another dent in their back-to-school lists. While we were on the toothbrush aisle, my oldest reminded me that we had discussed trying a toothpaste dispenser. We hadn't been able to find on FOREVER. The only problem...we had a choice between Dora and Sponge Bob. Boo. I almost walked away. Until....I remembered I had WASHI TAPE!

We went with Dora...she seemed less...foreboding.

I came home and picked out my colors...and started wrapping. It took me three {magic number for me?} times around to fully cover Dora's Exploration on the contraption.

Once I finished wrapping I had some extra 'overage' of washi tape over parts that I needed to be NOT covered....

So I found my ever-illusive razor blade {not really a good thing in a house of four children}. It was almost magical at cleanly removing the excess washi tape.

 Once I had clean lines all around it was time for Mod Podge. {I'm kind of glad I can type it because I'm pretty sure I say it wrong.}

Here's the second coat of Mod Podge. I let it dry completely and then I assembled the parts (two, not counting the toothpaste tube I added).

We attached it the mirror and we are set to conquer the toothpaste explosions that seemed to occur so regularly in my children's bathrooms.

Have you already purchased {and thrown out?} this addition to my bathroom?
How did it work for you?
