This might be a silly question, but are you a “rectangle” tissue box person or a “cube” tissue box person? Personally, I have been a cube-er for many, many years 😎 . I guess the main reason being that I had no choice since I had plastic cube-shaped tissue box covers for each of our bathrooms. So, recently during our “Master Bathroom Renovation” I had a cute idea pop into my head. I’m calling it my “5 Minute DIY Mason Jar Bathroom Tissue Dispenser”.
(Don’t miss more “Thrifty Style Team” ideas from the entire blog team at the end of this post.)
Why the heck didn’t I think of this before? Don’t get me wrong. I’ve seen DIY Mason Jar tissue dispensers before, but the lid was always involved and it sounded scary, and sharp. Well, not this time. No lid required.
Just look how pretty my version of a DIY Mason Jar Bathroom Tissue Dispenser looks on our bathroom vanity. It seems more pure, authentic and farmhouse rustic. Kind of like it should have always been used this way. Don’t you agree?
By the way…I found the huge glass eucalyptus hand soap dispenser at HomeGoods in the back of the store for $7.99! I love it because not only is it glass, the dispenser is huge, so I can fill it and forget it for months. There’s another version in the second photo below by my husband’s sink. I even have one in the kitchen now, too.
Oh, and 1 more thing before I give you the full tissue dispenser tutorial. If you have an old glass (not lead) canister not in use, why not use it for mouth wash?
Okay, so back to the tissues. This “5 Minute DIY Mason Jar Bathroom Tissue Dispenser” literally does take 5 minutes. It will actually take 2 minutes once you have the technique down.

First, you will need a 32 ounce Mason Jar, or any large jar will probably work. You’ll just have to test it out. The idea is that if the jar is too small, you will be refilling it way too often. As I mentioned, I used a 32 ounce Mason Jar.
Second, you’ll also need tissues (ha ha). I had a cube box for mine, so I opened it from the side like pictured above. You’re basically going to do the exact same technique that the tissue company did, so keep that in mind.
Third, take the pile of tissues out of the box and set them on the counter like so. You will not be able to fit the full box into the jar. I only use 1/3 at a time or it gets too tight for the tissues to come out.
Fourth, fold over the top tissue only like below.
Lastly, roll it all up and stick it into your jar with the 1 top tissue still sticking out. That’s it!
Boom. Now you have a snazzy Mason Jar Bathroom Tissue Dispenser your friends will be asking about the next time they come over.
