Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

Recently, I published a recipe for Mason Jar Bread. This week, I thought I would teach you how to make a Mason jar soap dispenser! 



  • Mason jar lid (plastic or metal)
  • Hammer and nails OR a drill
  • Soap dispenser pump (taller than your mason jar)
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Mason jar 

  1. Before you begin, make sure that the lid you chose fits your Mason jar. All "wide-mouth" jars require wide-mouth lids. 
  2. Make a hole (using a hammer and nails or drill) in the top of your Mason jar lid, the same size as your soap dispenser pump. The size of the hole will depend on the size of your pump. 
  3. Cut the straw of your soap dispenser pump so that it doesn't touch the bottom of the jar, but instead rests on the lid when it's inserted. If you're uncertain about how much to cut off, screw on the lid on the Mason jar. Then, trim a little bit off the end of the straw and set it (though the hole) in the jar. If it's too long, trim it a little bit again and see if it's still touching the bottom. Keep repeating this until the pump doesn't touch the bottom of the jar.
  4. Turn the pump upside down so that the top rests on the table. Then, slide the lid over the straw upside down. With the lid resting on the soap dispenser pump, glue all the way around (where the straw touches the lid). Let it dry.
  5. To use your soap dispenser, fill the Mason jar with soap and screw on the lid.

It's been awhile since I've published anything on YouTube, so I thought I would use this opportunity to make you a video as well. Enjoy!
