A common alternative use of piping is for everyday use household items. If you are looking for a way to re-organize your bathroom, starting with keeping up with toothbrushes—then here is a great DIY Project for you! This article will discuss how to use piping to make your very own toothbrush holders.

Materials

  • 1 inch PVC pipe
  • PVC pipe end caps (one for each holder)
  • Command hooks
  • Vinyl or stickers
  • PVC pipe cutter
  • Drill (Drill press is even better)

Step-By-Step Process

Step 1: Cutting and Drilling Pipe

The first step is to cut the pipe into 4.25 inch sections. Once you’ve done this, drill a hole about 1/2 inch from the end, making sure it’s on the “back side” where any printing may be.

Step 2: Washing and Cutting Vinyl Initials

The next step is to wash the pipes and create the initials to label each holder. This can be done by cutting vinyl initials, or simply by using stickers. Add end caps as well. These don’t need to be glued on, so you can disassemble them later and wash them out as needed.

Step 3: Install Command Hooks

Lastly, you can install the command hooks on the inside of the cabinet door. Be sure to let them sit for an hour before hanging holders and toothbrushes on them. Now, hopefully you won’t ever have toothbrushes go missing again!
