Mason Jar Soap Pump

I’ve had a major crush on mason jar soap pumps since I first saw them.

What a brilliant idea. I mean really, what’s not to love?

Even though you may have already seen 101 of them, I’m going to share my version too. So make that 102.

It makes me smile big.

Here’s how I made it:

I started with a regular mason jar… Luckily I have loads of them for canning.

Then, I emptied the soap out of my soap bottle, which I picked specifically for the clear soap pump. It doesn’t hurt that this soap smells amazing either.

Once the bottle was rinsed out, I used a grinder and cut the top of the bottle off. You could easily use a saw.

Then, I secured the lid in place and used our drill, with a metal drill bit, to drill a hole the size of the plastic bottle top.

With the hole cut out, I pushed the plastic bottle top through the bottom of the hole and used hot glue to secure it in place.

Then, I twisted the pump back on…

Once the hot glue was dry, I placed the pump in the jar and found that I needed to trim a little bit off the end of the pump so that it would fit in the jar. I used a pair of scissors and snipped off the extra length.

Then, I filled it with soap. It holds a lot, so I ended up mixing two different soaps together.

And now it simply shines.

I love the detail on the top…

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any cuter, I remembered those lovely numbered tags

And, well, the rest is history.

They’re pretty much perfect together!

And it makes me smile even bigger now.

My only problem is deciding which room to use it in. Right now it’s in the powder bath, but I’m thinking I need one for the kitchen too…

Luckily they’re easy to make!

    Got my mason jar ready to go! Picked up liquid soap- was in local Target this morning but they only had berry scent- where did you get your interesting sounding scent?

    • How exciting, Pam! You will love yours! I found my soap at Walmart, but ended up mixing two different types together. :)
      The cherry blossom & almond is completely lovely on it’s own, but to fill the jar a little bit fuller I mixed in another pink antibacterial soap with the moisturizing beads. That’s why it looks so pretty. :)
      Hope that helps!

  7. This is almost as cute as YOU! Ok, ok, it’s super sweet…& I LOVE it, when we create something that makes us smile:) I’m glad I’m not the only one, who does this!!! GO Shayna…
    Blessings & <3 M

    • Hi Marilyn! Thank you so much for your sweet comment! Welcome to the WGC! I’m so happy you found me! :)

  9. Love the number tag! It finishes it off perfectly! Thanks for sharing.

  10. Not sure where I have been hiding, but this is the first time I have seen this done with a mason jar and I love it! I also love the tag with twine you added. Very creative! I will have to keep this in mine when for the canning party (see that I aspire to host! Visiting via 36thavenue link up.

    • THANK YOU so very much, Barb! I’m happy you found me! :)
      This would be perfect for your canning party, which sounds like so much fun!

  11. I love the idea to use the old bottle top on the canning lid. I bought an old blue Mason jar (that I found really cheap at a flea market) & did mine – wish I would’ve seen your post 1st! :)

  12. I need to make some of these! Super cute and that tray you have the soap on is just precious. I need to find one of those trays as well! My son always uses the spare bathroom down stairs and since he is only 6, he can’t reach the handles to well and always gets a lot of water on the counter while trying to reach the soap pump. That tray would be perfect to help collect the extra water.
