Jar Soap Dispenser

Over at OhOh Blog, Ama made a darling soap dispenser from a simple jar.  It’s a great way to repurpose a glass jar.

For this project, Ama used a jam jar.  The tall, skinny jar is a fun departure from the typical Mason jar.  She added a really darling label as a finishing touch.  If you didn’t know better, I think it would be hard to guess that this pretty soap dispenser didn’t come from a fancy boutique!

Etched Glass Spice Bottles

Maybe you’ve noticed glass bottles of a favorite product piling up in your recycling bin week after week. This was the case for WUVIE at Instructables, who likes to relax at the end of the week with a bottled Starbucks Frappuccino. When WUVIE saw that she had quite the collection of these bottles, she decided to upcycle them into spice jars for her kitchen.

After cleaning the bottles and completely removing the labels, WUVIE used glass etching cream to add the names of the desired spices. WUVIE suggests checking out all the interestingly shaped bottles the next time you’re strolling through the grocery store. There are so many fun shapes and sizes that can repurposed for storage.
