Hey ya’ll I’m Erin from erinssharings. I am so excited to share a project that I featured on my blog and loved! It is one of my favorites and it is so easy!!
I love the look of mason jars and I have seen them all over Pinterest. When I saw one used as a soap dispenser I fell in love. Here is my version of a tutorial on the Mason Jar Soap Dispenser:
What you Need:
– Mason Jar (I used a medium size. You can go as big or as small as you care to)
– Large Nail (I just used one I found in the house)
– Soap Dispenser (I used one off of an old soap bottle that I liked)
– Spray Paint (I used a silver mettalic but you can use whatever color you want)
– and not pictured but you need some glue (hot glue, or any other type of sealant)
-Clear Sealant Spray Paint
1. Using a nail hammer the top of the mason jar in various places. I used the screwdriver to widen the holes. Do this until it is just wide enough for the soap pump to fit inside securely. You might have to cute the straw part of the soap pump, that’s fine. Cut off however much to fit on the bottom of the soap jar.
*Be careful of the underside of the lid. It is VERY sharp!!!!!*
2. Glue the soap pump to the lid of the mason jar.
3. I chose to spray paint my lid and pump to match. I placed a piece of newspaper under the lid and screwed the lid to the jar creating a cape. Then I spray painted it the silver color and let it dry.
I also chose to use a clear sealant on mine after I painted the color. I feel like this further protects the paint from wearing and chipping.

4. Fill it up with your favorite soap and start pumping!
I have been keeping mine in the kitchen filled with soap for a cute decoration. I have also been thinking of filling it with dishsoap for a cute and easy way to pump soap when washing dishes.
