Each of these ideas is simple and creative to suit the DIYer in you. So, stick around a little longer to find the best DIY toothbrush holder ideas!
1. A Mason Jar
Who would have thought we could use a Mason jar for more than canning? Well, it turns out that you can also repurpose this kitchen staple as a chic bathroom holder. To turn a Mason jar into a bathroom holder, remove the lid and screw on a shower caddy. The caddy will act as a soap dispenser, while the pot can hold toothbrushes, razors, or other small items. If you’re feeling extra creative, you can even paint the jar or add some decorative elements to it.
2. Concrete Brush Holder
Looking for something a little more rustic? This concrete brush holder is perfect for adding industrial flair to your bathroom. To make this holder, fill a silicone mold with concrete and let it harden. Once it’s set, pop out the concrete holder, and voila! You’ve got a unique and stylish way to store toothbrushes, makeup brushes, etc.
3. Wooden Cup
Repurpose everyday household items by using wooden cups as bathroom holders. You can use these cups to hold toothbrushes, pens, pencils, or even jewelry. Drill holes into the bottom of the cup. This will help with the drainage and screw the holes into the wall at different heights. Changing the height will add visual interest to your bathroom décor.
4. Glass Vase
A repurposed glass vase makes for a chic and minimalist toothbrush holder. If you don’t have an extra vase, pick one up at your local dollar store or thrift shop. Remove the label and give it a quick wash with soapy water. Add a few inches of sand or pebbles to the bottom of the vase for stability, then insert your toothbrushes. Done!
5. Wooden Crate
A wooden DIY toothbrush stand can add a rustic touch to your bathroom. You can usually find wooden crates at your local craft store. But if you’re feeling thrifty, check out your local grocery store. Wash the crate with soapy water and let it air dry. Once it’s dry, use a hot glue gun to attach four small Mason jars (with lids) to the inside of the crate. Fill each jar with sand or pebbles, then insert your toothbrushes.
6. Old Wine Bottle
Upcycle an old wine bottle into an elegant DIY toothbrush holder that will be an eye-turner. If you don’t have an old wine bottle, look for one at your local thrift shop. Start by giving the bottle a good wash with soapy water, then remove the labels. Once the labels are off, use a hot glue gun to attach four small Mason jars around the circumference of the bottleneck. Fill each jar with sand or pebbles, then insert your toothbrushes.
7. Hurricane Lamp
Who says hurricane lamps are for the living room? A repurposed hurricane lamp makes a chic and unique toothbrush holder. Remove the glass chimney, and add some sand or stones to the bottom for weight. There you have it! You’ve got a stylish DIY toothbrush holder with a cover that works as a bathroom accessory.
8. Cake Stand
A cake stand is not for birthday cakes anymore! Transform an unused cake stand into a lovely toothbrush holder. You can do this by placing a Mason jar or other small vessel upside down on the plate. Screw the jar in place if necessary. Then, add some pretty soaps, sponges, or washcloths, and you’re good to go.
9. Pen Holder
Got an old pen holder lying around? Put it to good use as a toothbrush holder! Remove the pens and ink cartridges (unless you want to keep them in there for decoration), and voilà! You’ve got a one-of-a-kind bathroom accessory that costs you nothing.
10. Copper Pipe
This DIY toothbrush and toothpaste holder idea is perfect for adding a touch of luxury. If you have a copper pipe and some adhesive putty, you’re good to go for this toothbrush holder DIY idea. The best part about this holder is that you can customize it to fit the specific needs of your bathroom. The copper will add a warm and inviting touch that will make your guests feel at home.
11. PVC Pipe Holder
Here comes another one of the best DIY toothbrush holder ideas. Do you want to do something funkier? Then making a toothbrush holder DIY with plastic pipe sounds swell. This project is ideal for limited-space bathrooms as you can hang it on the wall to save counter space. And if you’re worried about the durability of PVC, don’t be; this toothbrush holder DIY is pretty solid.
12. Cupcake Liner Holder
This toothbrush holder DIY idea is not only practical but also super cute. Keep a cupcake tin and some cupcake liners handy to make this DIY toothbrush holder. Then put one liner in each slot of the tin, and you’ve made the perfect holder. Plus, it’s easy to switch out the liners if you want to try any other DIY toothbrush holder ideas.
13. Wine Cork
Who knew that wine corks could be so versatile? For this holder, all you need is a wine cork and a hot glue gun. First, cut the wine cork in half lengthwise. Then, use the hot glue gun to attach the halves of the cork to the wall (make sure they’re level!). That’s it! This holder can store your toothbrush, floss, etc. It’s also great for small jewelry or trinkets. And just like with the cupcake liner holder, you can change up the look by using different colors or sizes of corks.
14. Straw-Based Holder
This is a super simple way to add a pop of color to your bathroom. Making this DIY toothbrush stand will be easy if you have a few spare straws and a pair of scissors. It would be preferable to have different colored straws. Cut the straws into about 3 inches long pieces, and then use hot glue to attach them to an old mason jar lid. Once the glue has dried, screw the lid onto the jar, and you are done.
15. An Old CD Case
Who says CD cases are obsolete? Certainly not us! If you’ve got an old CD case, put it to good use by making this chic DIY toothbrush holder. Start by cutting off the flap on the side of the case. Then, use hot glue or double-sided tape to attach felt or fabric to the inside of the case. This will add some padding so your toothbrushes don’t get scratched. Next, use a hole punch to make two holes in the top of the case (on opposite sides). Now thread some ribbon or twine through the holes and tie it off. Hang your new holder on a hook or nail, and you’ve created one of the best DIY toothbrush holder ideas!
16. Picture Frame
This holder is for the person who likes beautiful and functional things. A picture frame brush holder is exactly what it sounds like—a frame you can use to hold your toothbrush. To make one, all you need is an old picture frame (you can get one from a thrift store or yard sale), some paint or mod podge, and some ribbon. Paint or decoupage the frame however you like, then attach some ribbon to the back so it can hang on the wall. And you’re done making a fancy DIY toothbrush stand to start a conversation when guests see it.
17. Magazine Rack
This holder is perfect for people who like to keep things organized and tidy. A magazine rack makes an excellent toothbrush holder because it has many parts. You can use these parts for each family member (or each type of toothbrush, if you prefer). You can find magazine racks at dollar stores. Another way is to repurpose an old bookshelf by removing the shelves and hanging them on the wall. Make sure the compartments are big enough to fit a toothbrush (and toothpaste)!
18. Bottle Cap DIY Toothbrush Holder
For a rustic yet chic look, try this bottle cap toothbrush holder. You only need a few bottle caps, hot glue, and patience. The result is a holder that adds character to your bathroom. Plus, it’s super easy to clean – remove the caps and give them a quick wash in soapy water.
19. Clothespin Toothbrush Holder DIY
Another one of the savviest DIY toothbrush holder ideas is to work with clothespins. All it takes is cutting a piece of wood, painting it in the colors of your choice, and adding some white clothespins. As each element comes together and the result begins to take shape, watch as something special emerges from just a few simple materials. Add details like tiny hearts or flowers on the sides of the clothespins, then hold back and admire your work.
For something more substantial as a toothbrush holder DIY, go for cement as the base material. You’ll need a silicone mold, cement mix, water, a mixing bowl and spoon, and something to stir with. Mix the cement and water according to the package directions, then pour it into the mold. Let it sit for 24 hours, and pop out your new DIY toothbrush and toothpaste holder.
Creative toothbrush holder ideas have never been more exciting—or simpler. From upcycled Mason jar holders to hanging loops suspended from a rod, you can choose the perfect holder. It is to suit your style and complement your bathroom decoration. At the end of the day, finding an easy solution does not have to be complicated or costly. Let creativity be your guide.
