5 Minute DIY Mason Jar Bathroom Tissue Dispenser

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmail

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.)

I can't believe I never thought about using a Mason Jar for a tissue dispenser before! This 5 Minute DIY Mason Jar Bathroom Tissue Dispenser is so cute and affordable!

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.

    Well how stinkin cute is this? I can’t get enough mason jars in my life…and I love that it becomes white decor!! Thanks Julie!

    • Julie says:

      Great point, Cindy! A pink or blue one would look pretty in a nursery. Never thought of the color aspect.

  3. Vanessa says:

    That is such a cute idea Julie!! Love it!

    What a great idea!

  5. Tracy says:

    No way, no way…! That is the cutest most clever idea I’ve seen Ü
    Sadly, I’m a 224 count family size mondo-gigantic tissue box girl. No top feeding dispensing on those puppies. My husband and I both have allergies and those cubes just don’t cut it…BUT, guess what’s on my shopping list for today? 2 cube boxes of tissues for my guest bedroom and bath! You’re so smart! I’m so excited!

    • Julie says:

      Tracy, that is how my Mom is. She goes through 1/2 of a box of tissues a day. Have fun setting it up in those other rooms! Great idea!

  6. Michele says:

    I am thinking this will looked great on my end table – I hate how the boxes look but I can’t be far from tissue during allergy season!????

    Thanks for the idea!

    • Julie says:

      Great idea!! I never thought about on end tables, too. I have allergies, too. I can’t live without my Flonase right now. XO

  7. Mary Beth says:

    You are a genius, Julie! I love the look and the fact that it’s so easy to do and it looks awesome! p.s. Now, I have to head to HomeGood and look for those soap dispensers 😉

  8. BETTE QUERIN says:

    Hi Julie:
    That tissue bottle looks so nice. I have an oblong tissue box. Would it work as well as the cube?
    Thanks, Bette

  9. This is pure genius Julie! I am so doing this in my bathroom!

  10. Tammy says:

    Okay… I’m so going to try this and pray that I don’t mess it up! Too cute!

  11. Mom says:

    I loved it when I saw it at your house, love, Mom in NY,

  12. JaneEllen says:

    Love new feature not having to input name/email address every time. Getting lazier as time goes by, will be 78 in few days. Don’ t feel that old however my oldest turned 58 on the 10th. yikes.
    Hope you are having a great Summer so far.
    Love your tissue dispenser idea. If you can find an ” Atlas” jar they are a bit bigger. When I finish with this comment will go dig out a jar, think an aqua one, put tissues in.

    Happy week

    • Julie says:

      Happy birthday early, JaneEllen! Did I ever tell you my husband’s Mom’s name was MaryEllen (one of the sweetest souls I will ever remember) so when I see your comments it feels extra special!

  13. Amy says:

    Okay I do like it, I will probably do it for my guest bathroom heck maybe even my main bathroom but I would put the ring on. But seriously your gonna use a jar as a tissue holder and use that tacky soap dispenser?? They do make a mason jar topper that is a soap pump.. you’re welcome!

  14. Veronica says:

    Thank you for this and the mouth wash ideas! Now I just gotta do them!!! Always like your tips and ideas..

  15. Susan says:
