It’s Day 3 of our Holiday Craft Party and today we’re all sharing Mason jar crafts! There are so many neat holiday ideas for Mason jars, but I decided to make a Mason jar soap dispenser that looks like a snowman. This is a very easy craft to make, and a very simple way to add some festive touches to your bathroom or kitchen! Plus you can keep on using it into the new year!
And don’t forget about the awesome giveaway we’ve got going on this week—we’ve teamed up to offer two $50 gift cards to Michaels plus Minted.com has generously offered up a $50 gift card to use on their site! scroll to the bottom of this post to enter!
This is a cute and really simple craft idea. Pair one with a holiday hand towel and you’ve got a great gift to give your holiday party hostesses or your kid’s teachers!

How to make a Mason Jar Snowman Soap Dispenser
- Mason Jar
- Soap pump insert kit
- FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint in white
- Make sure it will work on glass surfaces
- strip of felt
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
1.) Start by painting the Mason jar with two coats white multi-surface satin acrylic paint, letting it dry completely in between coats. Once the second coat is dry, follow the paint bottle instructions for curing the jar in the oven. This should ensure that the paint won’t flake off of the jar over time.
2.) When the jar is cooled, use a hot glue gun to attach three buttons to the front of the jar (you may need to find a smooth section of the jar and make that the front). Then cut a strip of red felt (or whatever color you have) to make the scarf. I simply tied it around the neck of the jar, then trimmed and fringed the ends with a pair of sharp scissors.
3.) Assemble the pump lid and screw onto the jar. Now this Mason jar snowman soap dispenser is ready for displaying! Well, once you add soap, of course!
I can’t decide if I want to use this at our kitchen sink or keep it in our powder room. Either way, it’s such an easy way to add a festive touch to your home!
You could also do a Santa or elf version – see these Mason jar candy gifts I made last year for inspiration.
