The holidays are here! The lights! The giving and gifting! The cheer! That means lots of friends and family and unexpected guests. The last thing we need is to greet those loved ones at the door unprepared.
To stay prepared, we need to stock up. On what? Toilet paper, first of all. Because you never know. Now, I live in a house with 1 teen, 2 about to be teens, my fiancee, and a 1 year old who doesn’t yet use toilet paper, but will soon. All of us sharing 1 small bathroom. All of that to say, toilet paper is one of those things that I don’t skimp on.
But to make sure that we are always well stocked, I grab a 12 count Big Roll of Scott® ComfortPlus™ Toilet Paper at Family Dollar. There’s a Family Dollar not even 2 blocks from my house, so it’s super convenient for all of those quick trip emergencies. But who wants any kind of emergency when you’d rather be spending time with your guests?
That’s why I grab the big roll of Scott ComfortPlus. Scott ComfortPlus is the new Scott Extra Soft. So, if you used to purchase Scott Extra Soft, Scott ComfortPlus is the new and improved version.
With thick, plush sheets for a trusted, comforting clean, Scott® Toilet Paper is tested for strength and designed for comfort. In fact, it’s now 3X stronger for unbeatable comfort! Better than the competition, Scott® ComfortPlus™ is 5 in 1 – soft, strong, thick, absorbent, clog-free.
Another way to make sure we’re prepared is to swap out our everyday room decor for more festive selections. Even, and maybe especially, in the bathroom. This doesn’t need to cost a lot, either. All you need to do is get creative, like our DIY Marbled Paper Prints.
These DIY Marbled Paper Prints are such a fun way to include the holidays and seasonal cheer in a room of the house that’s usually forgotten when it comes to such crafty things. And it’s also a reminder to my kids, and maybe some of the guests, too, of a few important rules when visiting the bathroom. Brush, Wash, and Flush. Please, and thank you.
Of course, your guests will have no problem flushing with the help of Scott ComfortPlus. Just sayin’.
For our DIY Marbled Paper Prints, we chose a lighter blue and darker blue acrylic paint for the main design. Then, once dry, we formed the words to our prints with block letter stickers. And decorated with snowflake embellishments for a wintery holiday theme.
DIY Marbled Paper Prints
- shaving foam
- sheet pan
- acrylic paint – 2 different shades of blue
- white cardstock
- white block letters
- snowflake embellishments
- wood skewer
- thick piece of cardboard
- 4 white frames
Cover a table with newspaper or an old tablecloth, some way to protect the surface. Then, apply a layer of shaving foam to a sheet pan.
Add drops of acrylic paint.
Swirl with a wood skewer, leaving some areas of white.
Press a sheet of white cardstock into the shaving foam, making sure all areas are pressed into the foam. Remove gently.
Scrape away excess shaving foam with a spare piece of cardboard. Set on a table or drying rack to dry completely.
Once dry, apply the letters to the bottom of your prints. It’s easier to start with the last letter, working backwards.
Add snowflake embellishments. The great thing about DIY bathroom decor, though, is that you can swap it out for every season or holiday. Red colors with hearts for Valentines Day. Yellow with ducks for springs. Orange and black with pumpkins for Halloween. With a few easy touches, the bathroom can be the most holiday-ready part of the house!
