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!)
You Will Need:
- quart mason jar with lid assembly
- step drill bit and power drill
- empty foam soap bottle with pump, (I grabbed mine at Target for $1.50)
- Xacto knife
- kitchen scissors or heavy duty scissors
- hot glue gun with glue
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.
Use the Xacto knife to cut the top of the lid off.
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.
Screw the pump on to the lid.
Fill the jar with your favorite soap.

A double batch of this recipe will fit in the quart mason jar.
And there you have it. A thrifty mason jar soap dispenser!
As I tell my kids, one pump is enough!
These are perfect for kitchens and bathrooms!
See how easy it is to go from a disposable empty bottle to a gorgeous mason jar soap dispenser in minutes?
