When organizing bathroom essentials, it's easy to just shove them away in any old cupboard or keep them in their original packaging. While this serves its purpose, perhaps you'd prefer something more visually pleasing to the eye, in which case you may want to try a hack by TikTok user @jessceecuh. Rather than leaving items as you bought them, you could create your own beautiful stemmed toiletry holder using Dollar Tree glassware, making for a more visually appealing look. Not only does this hack give you some stunning visuals, but it's also relatively cheap, so you won't have to stretch your purse strings too far, either.

All you'll need is some glass taper candleholders for $1.25 each from Dollar Tree at the time of writing, some superglue, and some glasses of your choice, such as this pack of 12 thick-bottom clear ones for $1.25 each, or a simple stemless wine glass for $1.25, which also comes in a set of 12. You can create as many of these as you want, which is perfect if you want to re-organize bathroom essentials such as cotton balls, buds, samples of beauty products, cotton wipes, or even to store your toothbrush and toothpaste — the list is endless. If you're making several, then you can mix and match different styles as you please. So, how exactly do you re-create this stunning Dollar Tree DIY?

Glue your glasses and candleholders together

Thankfully, DIY-ing your own bathroom storage is relatively simple. All you need to do is take your candleholders and apply a generous layer of superglue along the rim before taking your glass and adding it on top. Repeat this process for each holder that you plan to make. Now, you should allow it at least a day to adhere to ensure everything is set in place and secure, as you don't want your glassware to slip and smash. Once that's done, simply take your bathroom items, whether they're cotton pads or small product tester bottles, and store them into each glass. This way, everything should be easily accessible and easy to find. As a result, you should be left with some pretty unique toiletry storage that you can place anywhere you want.

While displaying these on your countertops is a great idea, you can always stow them away in a cupboard if there's not enough space. When you begin to run low on stock, all you have to do is refill them and continue to use them, tossing any excess packaging in the trash or recycling. Although organizing items into separate categories works well, feel free to combine or customize them even further. 

Add your own touch

If you want to customize your glasses further, one great way to do so is by painting a pattern on them utilizing enamel or acrylic paint. While it may take some time and patience, it's perfect if you have a creative flair and want to create a stylish result. Likewise, if you want a colorful splash but don't fancy giving the painting a go, you could always opt for some colored glassware such as these off Amazon for $23.98. While these look great, there are plenty of options to choose from, so take your time to look around and decide what would be best. Finally, you have the option to add some sticky labels and write down what's in each one for extra organization. This may be particularly useful if you opt for the colored option, as you may not find it as easy to see inside.

This hack is a great option for DIY extra bathroom storage. However, you should be careful to keep them out of reach of children, as you don't want them to smash or fall off the side accidentally.
