Handmade Soap Dispensers: From A Bottle of Jack to Seltzer

Glass bottles are back in a big way, and what better way to welcome them into your home than a simple upcycled upgrade? We looked around for some creative, vintage, and just plain fun ways to make soap dispensers a little more personalized. You may not realize just how many people wash up at your place until you add something unexpected, like the upcycled version of this familiar household staple. Here are some of the most creative soap dispensers we have found to date:

1. Old Seltzer Bottles These bottles have been reused for many a year (so many, most of us can't remember the times when they first came about). Just screw in the dispenser lid and Viola! You have a vintage soap dispenser on your hands. If that isn't available, then check out Grasshopper 501's shop with a variety of dispensers to choose from, but it will cost you a hefty $80.

2. Beverage Bottles Now for the whiskey and Patron lovers out there, English Pirate's Etsy shop hosts some fun takes on the dish dispenser from your favorite sources of liquid courage. Prices range from $20 - $40, but we have a feeling this inspiration may take you to the craft store for some unique holiday gifts.

3. Good Old Mason Jar What can you not use a Mason Jar for? Heather Bullard offers a step by step DIY for turning your reliable Mason Jar into an accent for your kitchen. Read about it here.

4. Olive Oil Dispenser Since they already come with a top made for dispensing liquids, upgrading sweet ceramic olive oil dispensers to hold your dish soap can be fun. Just remember it might require a little bit of cleaning now and then.

Have fun recreating this everyday item!
