Here’s an easy update for your bath! Check out these Repurposed Shampoo Bottles with Free Printable Labels. This DIY project began when I decided to spruce up our master bathtub with our favorite bathing items (bath salts, bath bombs, bubble bath, etc) and I wanted some pretty bottles to hold shampoo and bubble bath. I don’t like spending money and adding more “stuff” to our home (read Your Home Made Simple in 30 Days here) and prefer to repurpose items we already own in our home… so I came up with the brilliant idea to spray paint old Tresemme shampoo bottles and created printable chalkboard labels for each. Keep reading for how to make some of your own and grab the free printable labels below!
DIY Repurposed Shampoo Bottles with Free Printable Labels
- 32 Oz Shampoo Bottles
- Spray Paint (for plastic)
- Plastic Wrap
- Rubber Bands
- Packing Tape
- Printable Chalkboard Labels (get them below)
1.Prepare the bottles to be spray painted. Wipe down the surface and let dry. I used old shampoo bottles (which were empty) but you could use a full bottle as long as you protect the contents inside. Wrap the top with plastic wrap to protect the inside. I used a rubber band to secure the plastic wrap on mine.
2. Spray paint the bottles with 2- 3 coats using your desired paint color. I used silver but black, white or colors to match your kid’s bathroom would be fun.
3. Let dry for 24-48 hours. Replace the pump cap. Add the printable labels (optional).

- Conditioner Label (1)
- Bubble Bath Label (1)
- Body Wash Label (1)
How to add the printable labels
1.Cut the printable labels.
2. Attach a piece of packaging tape across the top.
3. Cut the outer border of the tape, mimicking the shape of the label (you want enough over-hang because the edges of the tape will be what sticks the label to the bottle).
4. Attach the label to the bottle (use additional adhesive (glue/double-sided tape on the back of the label if desired).
Please note: I have yet to test how these hold up while being exposed to water and plan to only use them in the bathtub in our home (where there is little water exposure compared to a shower).
Although these pretty bottles aren’t too expensive (if you prefer to purchase bottles to use my free printable instead of painting), you still can’t beat “free” with this project!
