DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

I have a super simple project you can make with what you may already have (or can run to the dollar store to pick up), a Mason Jar Soap Dispenser! 
 
I’d seen these pinned and around the web a while back, so today, I figured maybe I can try to figure out how to make them to give as gifts for Mother’s Day tomorrow.  Yup, ultra-procrastinator!  

 

What you’ll need:
 
1. Mason jars
2. Glue (I like E6000 for these kinds of projects)

3. Pumps (I bought some cheap soap dispensers and used theirs) 

4. Hand soap, or lotion, or whatever filler you’d like
5. Drill
6. Hammer
7. Nail
8.Twine (optional)
9. Love (mandatory) ;)

Take the lid off the mason  jar and separate its parts.

With a nail and hammer, puncture a few holes on the top of the lid.

Salt shaker anyone??  Not a bad idea!
Then with a drill and the biggest drill bit you have (ok, use your judgment here!), drill right through the holes to create an opening large enough to fit your pump securely.

Put the pump through the hole.

I glued the lid parts together so they wouldn’t slip, although in retrospect, not sure if that was necessary.  Better be safe than sorry I guess!
 
Once the glue dried, I made sure to clean the jar and lid/pump, before I actually put the soap in it (oh, the irony!).  I wanted to make sure all the drill, nail, and hammer cooties were washed away.
 
Then simply filled the jar with the hand soap (also a dollar store find) and added the twine as a rustic and decorative touch.  
In about 30 minutes, we went from this:

You can get really creative with what you put in the jars!  
Love these for any other occasion, or just around your house!  

I made 3 of these in half an hour, and spent about $6 for the soap, and the dispensers, the rest came from my good ol’ supply closet.  

Two will be given out as Mother’s Day gifts tomorrow.  One, naturally, will stay with me!

Have a blessed Mother’s Day!

Love, Barbara

    This is too cute. I love anything in a mason jar but never thought about turning it into a soap dispenser. Just hopping over from Katherines Corner to invite you to Freedom Fridays. So hoping to see you there!
    PS Following you on Linky.
