DIY: Manly Toothbrush Holder

Howdy Folks,
So I share my bathroom with my two boys and, yes, the wifey got her own wellness room, whereas ours is a complete mess. One of the things that does slightly annoy me is the inability of boys (in this case aged 5 and 8) to stow away their toothbrushes after use.

So, we thought about it hard (i.e. for ca. 30 seconds) and came up with the following, must-have, manly toothbrush holder:

 Making these were as easy as it looks - we each chose an action man-type toy, drilled a hole, screwed the figure into the wall, and superglued the arms stuck in a hug. Toothbrushes fit snugly into the caring embrace, and wont fall down. Just wait for the superglue to harden before inserting a toothbrush, otherwise I won't be held responsible :-).

The only problem was that the oldest son (who had originally chosen the army guy on the lower right) strongly felt that he was entitled to 'my' toothbrush holder (the cool green dude). So now I'm stuck with the weird nazi-guy...

Needless to say, since these beauties have been put up there hasn't been a single toothbrush resting on the sink after use. Works like a charm, costs a penny, and looks cool - what's not to like?

Anyways, thanks for reading - if you found the post interesting then any comments or tips are greatly appreciated!
Until the next time; stay safe and have fun!

All the best,


  1. Great idea Kasper. Your son owes you for taking your guy though.

  2. I love this idea! It would look perfect in my rustic bathroom. Thanks! 🙂
