Two of my favorite trends right now are gold and mason jars. Today I’m going to show you how to combine those two trends to make a fashionable gold mason jar DIY soap dispenser! It’s hard to believe that a soap dispenser could look so good and be so easy to make, but this project is truly one that takes just a few short minutes and only costs a few dollars.
Mason Jar DIY Soap Dispenser Supplies:
- Small Mouth Mason Jar
- Darice Mason Jar Soap Dispenser Lid with Locking Collar
- Gold Spray Paint
- Rubbing Alcohol and Cotton Ball (optional)
Step 1. Before I spray paint, I like to wipe my glass with a cotton ball with a little bit of rubbing alcohol. This is totally optional, but the rubbing alcohol removes the oil and grease from fingerprints and dirt that might be on the glass. Open up the soap dispenser kit and remove and set aside the white plastic pump, the tube, and the small ring.
Step 2. Place the mason jar and the metal lid that came with the kit onto cardboard or another surface that can be spray painted outside. Spray paint the jar and lid with the gold spray paint, making sure to spray in light coats a few times to ensure even coverage and no dripping. Let the paint dry completely.
Step 3. Fill the mason jar with liquid soap. Place the pump inside the lid hole through the top, and then screw the ring into the pump from underneath the lid. Place the long tube inside and screw it in. Trim the plastic tube (if necessary) with scissors so that the lid can be put back on. Screw back on the lid.
I love that this gold mason jar DIY soap dispenser is so shiny and reflects light so well. Don’t be surprised to find yourself washing your hands more often than normal, just so you can use your new soap dispenser.
