Erika Wassall, the Jersey Farm Scribe here, with a quick craft that makes a GREAT DIY gift. It is so easy to learn how to make a Mason Jar Sap Dispenser and it makes cute decor for your bathrooms.
Mason Jar Soap Dispenser Tutorial
What do you need? Simply, a mason jar (with top), a drill and some hand soap. I got my soap from the dollar store.
How To Make A Mason Jar Soap Dispenser:
Pull out the pump from the cheap soap dispenser. Get an estimate of the width of that bottom circular part (the part that goes INSIDE the soap container).
Drill a hole in the mason jar top and either continue to drill larger holes until the hole is big enough, or cut the top with tin snips. You want it to be snug, because then you won’t even need glue! Push the soap pump through (snipping the tube with scissors if the mason jar is shorter).
Fill the mason jar with soap and plunk the top on!! It is that easy!
- Spray paint the jar tops a copper color for an antique look.
- Decorate or paint the mason jars
- Pick nicely colored soaps, and mix with a bulk white cream colored soap for a more subtle color. You can even make your own liquid hand soap for refill time.
I made about four of these mason jar soap dispensers in the course of about 25 minutes. They went SO fast I forgot to continue to take pictures, and they were snatched up by neighbors JUST as quickly. They would make a great gift for anyone with a country theme to their house.
I’ll be making more soon for my kitchen and bathroom! Where will you put your mason jar soap dispensers? Or who will you give your mason jar soap dispensers to?
