After the booze is all gone….

Let’s face it, we all like a little alcoholic beverage every once in a while. And haven’t you noticed that some of those alcoholic beverages come in the prettiest bottles? The question is what to do with them. Well, I turned mine into DIY liquor bottle soap dispenser. I don’t use the large liquor bottles though. I like to use the small glass ones, usually found behind the beverage store sales counter.

Soap Pump Dispenser from Liquor Bottle 680x1024 After the booze is all gone....

It’s simple!

Supplies needed:

  1. A small used glass liquor bottle… I love the color of this one.

2. Mod Podge – Gloss

3. An artist brush

4. Soap Pump Dispenser

The brush I used was a small square artist brush. I brushed the Mod Podge over the front and back labels 4 different times. Since these were going to get soap and water on them regularly, I wanted to make sure that I had a nice seal so I started on the glass and worked my way up and down the label making sure all the edges were covered.

I ordered the soap pumps from One Dream Design. They have so many to choose from! You can pick from oil rubbed bronze, brushed nickel, polished nickel, copper, brass… and they have different head styles and sizes. They even carry foam pumps! The best part is you can find pumps for less than $2.50!!! Wahoo!

All you do is cut the interior straw to fit the height of the bottle and screw on the pump head. They fit standard bottles, no adjustments necessary. I made several for the house. The Blue Sapphire is in my powder room on the main floor and I made a Crown Royal one for the basement bathroom.

They are always a topic of conversation and they look so good! I totally love how they came out. It could be a nice gift too! If I were to give it to someone I would give them the unopened bottle of course, already have the Mod Podge work done and include the fitted soap dispenser pump. Once they drink the booze, they can wash it out, add soap and replace the cap with the pump!

This was so fun! Hope you like it as much as I do!

  1. Hi. Think this is a great idea! Just wondering though what size pumps did you buy at one dream design? Did you need any collars?

    Have you ever tried fitting them on bigger bottles? I have a small disaronno, big Bombay gin and an el Jimador bottle I want to use with pumps.

    Also when you use the modpodge do you just cover the label only or do you go over the edge of the label a bit. Yours look great!

    Any help would be great…Thanks very much.

    1. Hi there! I just bought the standard size pumps. They fit the smaller screw top liquor bottles since the heads are the same size as a regular sized bottle. I did buy some collars just in case, since they are inexpensive. However, I only used one collar for a bottle I used that was not a screw top liquor bottle (I haven’t posted that bottle on my site). And yes, when applying the modpodge you need to go over the edges to seal the labels completely.

      Hope this helps!

      1. Where did you get the collar rings, because they want you to buy 6 sets of them at the site where you purchased the pumps. Did you purchase them somewhere else? thank you

        1. I purchased the collar rings at One Dream Design as well. It has been a couple of years since I ordered so they may have changed their purchase options. If you will use the pumps on the actual liquor bottle you won’t need the rubber collars. I actually ended up using them on a vintage glass bottle, but they weren’t necessary for the liquor ones. I hope that helps!

  2. You are a genius!

    I have used glass bottles with liquor pour spouts for years in my kitchen (cobalt blue wine bottle for dish soap, fish shaped wine bottle for olive oil) and baths (oil and vinegar dispensers with pour spouts for mouthwash, cute little ones for nail polish remover and astringent). Love the look!

    But until your site, I have gone slightly mental looking for a spa-look dispenser to put in my tub area. Can’t be glass- would look pretty but it might chop the tub when it falls off a ledge. (And, yeah, I guess it would be a little sad if my girls got cut up with broken glass :-). But hey- there are large liquor bottles that are plastic!

    I am so gonna try this. Don’t even care what liquor it is as long as the bottle looks cool!!!


  3. I bought the pumps, but they don’t fit the Bombay Sapphire? They fit Jack Daniels. Did you adapt them at all?

    1. Thank you for your comment. Actually, no I did not have to adjust them at all. The pumps fit my Bombay Sapphire just fine. Mine was the 375 ml glass bottle. Was that the same size as yours?

  4. Hi! Just wondering how the labels are holding up? I’m about to make one for a friend and am just curious if the modpodged labels have held up after all this time
    thank you 🙂

    1. They are holding up great! Both of the bottles still have their labels and no water has yet to seep underneath them. All you have to do it make sure to go over the edges of the labels really well and apply several coats. Make sure the old coat dries before adding the new one. I hope this helps and good luck!

  5. Dear Yami,

    Thanks for your ideas. I have a 750 ml Bombay Sapphire gin bottle. You said yours was 375 ml. Any idea what size dispenser I need to buy?

    Thank you!

    1. I believe they are the same size. I used the standard size soap pump and it worked fine on the little bottle. Most liquor bottles come with standard size spouts as well. I hope that helps!

  6. Hey Yami,
    Love this idea! This is really a good gift idea 🙂 By the way, are there color options for the pump? I’ve been aiming for gold or rose gold.
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Saw an idea to put hand sanitizer in a corona bottle. How do I find the right pump cap to fit the bottle.
