DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

Happy Friday y'all! I've got something super cute for you today...
Mason Jar Soap Dispensers! I'm kind of obsessed with mason jars. There's just some kind of a rustic- country charm about them that I adore. The other day I saw an etsy shop selling mason jar soap dispensers and I was so in love. But... they were $15 each and I just wasn't about to spend $15 on a soap dispenser. I pondered on it a bit and I figured I could make my own. With items I already had in the house... so it was pretty much free. You can find mason jars by the case in your local grocery store or I usually find them at Goodwill for around .99 a piece. 

All you need for this little DIY is a mason jar, a soap pump from any soap dispenser, a nail, and a hammer. I painted mine afterwards with a little spray paint I had around the house, you can choose to paint yours or leave it clear.

1 Mason Jar, 1 Soap Dispenser Pump
Place your nail into the center of the mason jar lid, hammer it to make a hole and then hammer around the hole until you have a hole big enough for the soap dispenser to fit in.
Place dispenser in jar lid and VOILA!
Totally adorbs clear or...
Spray paint your lid and jar and let dry completely
I went over all the little letters and markings with a sanding block to distress
Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am
I promise you can do this yourself in Oh, about 5 minutes. Good Luck!


  1. Can't wait to try this. It's beautiful.

  2. Would look even cooler with a real metal pump top, you can find them at for about three bucks.
