Glass Jar Soap Dispenser

Glass Jar Soap Dispenser

As you probably know, because I say it all the time, I save all my glass containers.  Sauce, pickles, wine etc. they really do come in handy for all kinds of home and craft projects.  Today I’m sharing a simple glass jar soap dispenser with a simple decoration.  I made this using a cute little bottle that was on it’s way to the recycling bin.

We have a soap dispenser by every sink in our home, and it would be quite expensive and wasteful to buy a new container every time the soap ran out.  I like the foam containers the best, it’s so easy to refill them with DIY foam soap.  But now that I’m using this pretty glass jar soap dispenser I think I might revert back to the liquid soap again.

A glass jar is so much easier to keep clean than a typical plastic one, even soap jars get gross after repeated use in a bathroom.  That plastic is hard to clean after a while.  

I had to recycle an old plastic soap dispenser that I just couldn’t get clean anymore.  The label was peeling, but wouldn’t come all the way off and it was gross.  I saved the pump and cleaned that up.  To my surprise it fit perfectly on this brown glass bottle I had in my craft room.

I washed up both pieces and filled the jar with soap.

I cut triangles from scrap blue and white vinyl to make a geometric pattern just to dress up the bottle a bit.  The grid lines on the back of the vinyl makes cutting shapes very easy.

These colors go well in my kid’s bathroom but I could use this anywhere in the house.  Now that I have made one, I might try this with other glass bottles.

Super cute! I can't stand to get rid of glass jars, either. Our laundry closet is full of jars and cans I'm saving up for projects!
