PVC Pipe Toothbrush Holders

Easy tutorial for DIY PVC pipe toothbrush holders – watch how we organized our kids’ toothbrushes!

PVC Pipe Toothbrush Holder by Crafting in the Rain

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

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.

Drill holes in PVC

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!

Yield: 3 toothbrush 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!
