DIY Blue Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

My bathroom makeover has begun and I’ve started with some of the accessories that I wanted to build the room around. The inspiration for our bathroom formed from this pin on Pinterest for Blue Mason Jars turned into soap dispensers.

There are a few ways that I found on Pinterest that you can do them including with mod podge and food coloring or glass paint. I decided to buy the glass paint because it was so cheap and I knew that these glass jars were going to be around water.

Here is what you will need:

Mason Jars with Lids(Walmart has 12 of them for $9.99 or Michael’s sells them in singles)

Clear Flower Pot Votive Holders
(Michael’s has them but were sold out every time I looked)

Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glossy Glass Paint 45-Milliliter Bottle, Turquoise

Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glass Paint Thinner 45-Milliliter Bottle

Rust-Oleum 7214830 Hammered Metal Finish Spray, Gray, 12-Ounce

Lotion or soap bottle (recycle!)

You only need a tiny amount of the Turquoise paint (like a drop) Then add the thinner to it. It will look much darker than you need but it’s ok because it will be even thinner on the glass. I used a paint brush but it started creating tiny bubbles in the paint so I would suggest a lint-free rag. I think a sponge might create bubbles as well.

Cover the mason jars with a thin layer. Don’t double coat because it gets tacky and will make it darker in that spot. Allow the jars to dry for 24 hours.

After the 24 hours place on a cookie sheet with wax paper and bake in your household oven at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.

Take your old soap or lotion bottle and cut the top off with the inside threading. Drill a hole into the top of your mason jar lid. Glue the inside of the lid with the inside of the bottle threading. 

Then you can cut the tubing to the desired length of the bottle. Spray paint the lid and pomp pieces. Make sure to unscrew them partially so that it doesn’t get stuck when it dries.

After everything is done you can fill them with whatever you like. I did a lotion, soap and cotton jar. The cotton jar holds the votive candle and fits perfectly into the top.
