Easy DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser (Foam Pump)

Sharing is caring!

Earlier this week I shared with you my recipe for homemade liquid hand soap, which is chemical free. This recipe is intended for a foam pump soap dispenser.

Naturally I thought it would be cool to make a mason jar soap dispenser for storing the soap in. It is super easy (and budget-friendly) to create. And, we use a foam pump so it goes perfectly with our homemade soap!

Here is how you make it. Literally, this takes just a few minutes to do! (Makes an awesome gift idea too!)

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser


You Will Need:

Grab your used, empty foam soap bottle and unscrew the bottle from the pump.

Grab your mason jar.

Disassemble your jar from the lid.

Trace, with a marker, the opening of the soap bottle onto the flat mason jar lid.

Reassemble the lid back onto the jar. This will give you a sturdy drilling grip.

Assemble your power drill with step bit attachment.

Use the bit and drill into the circle you’ve made on the lid.

You can wear goggles if you want to be safe.

DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN NEAR. The metal shavings can fly.

Remove the lid  and now use your kitchen shears to finish cutting out the circle you’ve made in the lid.

Watch the sharp edges- you can cut yourself if you’re not careful.

Push the plastic lid through the opening you’ve created in the mason jar lid.

BE CAREFUL. The edges you’ve cut are sharp.

Flip the lid over and apply some hot glue where the plastic and the metal lid meet.

This will keep the plastic in place when you’re screwing and unscrewing the pump on.
