Easy tutorial for DIY PVC pipe toothbrush holders – watch how we organized our kids’ toothbrushes!
When we remodeled our hall bathroom last summer I knew we had to come up with new toothbrush holders. We hated the long skinny counter that went all the way across the toilet tank so we made it disappear.
But that meant we were left with a tiny vanity, nearly no counter space, and kids who weren’t really tall enough to reach the shelves we’d installed.
That’s when these toothbrush holders were created. Hidden away on the inside of the cupboard door, they are easily accessible and removable if we need them to be.
Supplies for making toothbrush holders
- 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)
Assemble PVC Pipe Toothbrush Holder
Cut pipe into 4.25 inch sections.
Drill a hole about 1/2 inch from the end, making sure it’s on the “back side” where any printing is.
Wash the pipes. Cut vinyl initials (or use stickers) to label each holder. I cut mine to be 1 inch tall.
Add end caps (they don’t need to be glued on, and then you can disassemble them later and wash them out as needed)
Install command hooks on the inside of the cabinet door. Our vanity is small, so more may fit on your doors if you need them. Let them set for 1 hour before hanging holders and toothbrushes.
Now hopefully you won’t ever have toothbrushes go missing in the garbage cans!
- 1 inch PVC pipe (each length: 4.25 inches for child or 5 inches for adult)
- PVC pipe end cap, one for each holder
- Command hooks, small
- Vinyl cut out or letter stickers (optional)
- Drill or Drill press
- PVC Pipe cutter
1. For a child-size holder, cut pipe to 4.25 inches; for an adult-size cut pipe to 5 inches
2. Drill a 3/8 inch hole about 1/2 inch from one end of the pipe - make sure the command hook will fit through
3. Wash the pipe
4. Apply letter stickers to the fronts for identification if desired
5. Add end cap to the bottom, but no need to glue
6. Install command hooks and hang the holders
I remember one time when I was a little kid I dropped my toothbrush in the trash can. But I was super attached to that thing for some reason. So my dad tried to help me out and disinfect it in some boiling water.
Instead the hot water warped the plastic handle (like you might expect) and I had to suck it up and just use a new toothbrush 🙂 Aren’t kids silly!
So grab some hooks and pvc, and make some diy pvc pipe toothbrush holders! What are some of your organizing tricks you’ve set up at your house?
