All Things New Sundays - DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser & Flower Arrangement

Advertisement

I've been wanting to use mason jars for some sort of DIY for some time now and finally got around to it! I made a soap dispenser for my kitchen and created a flower arrangement for the home!

Now, let's get to the good part: how you can DIY!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED
  • Mason Jar w/ lid (I bought a 12 pack from Fred Meyer for $11.99)
  • Super Glue
  • Soap Dispenser
  • Liquid soap or dish washing detergent (your preference)
  • A drill and a drill bit to make a hole large enough for the soap dispenser

HOW TO DO IT YOURSELF
With a sharp object, mark the center of the lid where you are going to be drilling a hole:

Use a drill gun to create a hole large enough for the soap dispenser tube you are using:

Grab some super glue and glue the dispenser to the lid and set aside to dry thoroughly:

While you are waiting for the super glue to dry, fill the mason jar with liquid soap/dish washing detergent:

Once the glue has dried put the lid back on and your done!! You now have a fabulous new soap dispenser!

Pretty Flower Arrangement
Since I bought so many mason jars, I decided to make a flower arrangement and here are the results:

I love all recycling projects ... and this is great because I have kept several bottles of styling cream that comes with this system so I'm going to find a glass bottle and to make my soap dispenser now.

Love both those ideas, but my favorite is the soap dispenser. i wish I would have seen this before, I went out and bought 2 soap dispensers for the kitchen, one for the hand soap and one or the dishes.
TFS. I will definitely keep this in mind for next time.

Great DIY projects! I love, love, love mason jars and have them all over my house. In fact, I often use them as vases for inexpensive grocery store bouquets. I just think they're so simple and pretty.

I really love the idea of putting the lemons and flowers in the mason jar. I was wondering how long the lemons remained yellow and if the acidity affected the flowers? I would like to do something similaras a wedding centerpiece, but wasn't sure if they could be made the night before or not? Thanks! :)

Denise Pacurar said...

Hey!! You can certainly make this the night before:) my flowers lasted about 3 days without looking old or wilted and the lemons were just fine!! It would be super easy and low maintenance for a wedding!!  <3 Denise

Good idea! Shame you couldn't save the extra hand soap bag but a very clever and simple way to fix up the bathroom! Thanks for sharing.
