DIY Soap Dispenser


, ,

I wanted to give my kitchen a more sleek and polished look that does not include this unsightly, enormous bottle of dish washing liquid.


Because I use dish soap so regularly, I would really prefer that it remains readily available and not have to store it away in the cabinet.

I’ve seen a lot of chic looking soap dispensers in the stores and even some thrifty creative ones made from mason jars, but I wanted something of a larger scale that would hold quite a bit of soap and still be visually pleasing. It’s not uncommon for me to have a “ah ha” moment, but I can say that I don’t ever remember having one while snacking on chips ‘n salsa!!

The size and shape of the jar happens to be perfect for this DIY project!

Here’s what I used:


  • Large Dollar Store Hand Soap w/ Pump (only $1)
  • 24oz Pace Salsa or Picante Sauce Jar
  • Drill
  • Paint
  • Glue Gun or E6000

Begin with cleaning the jar and lid of its residual contents and soaking it in water to remove the labels.

Drill a hole in the top just big enough to fit the pump stem through (if you don’t have a drill I’m pretty sure you can accomplish this by using a nail and hammer)


Place the stem of the pump through the hole and use your hot glue gun to secure it.
Paint the jar, lid and pump whatever tone you desire.


Once the paint has dried, you can begin to assemble your DIY Soap Dispenser!

Fill the jar with dish soap and screw on the cap.

Display ‘n Enjoy


Oh and by the way, this wasn’t made in New York City!!!

I hope this project inspires you to get your creative juices flowing. Let your creativity run wild.
This project can be customize to your liking.
You can paint it what ever color you like, stencil it or even leave it clear to show the color of the dish soap… Hey whatever suites your tastes!!!

As always, I appreciate you stopping by,
