Let the mason jar lend its cute, vintage charm to your kitchen or bathroom by trying out this DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser project.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-mason jar with lid
-old soap bottle with pump
-drill with a large diameter bit (or any tool that can help you poke a large hole in the lid)
-glue (any strong, water-resistant adhesive)

Create a hole in the lid of your mason jar with a drill (make sure to keep the lid screwed on the jar while doing so to keep it in place) that is big enough to fit the pump from your soap bottle. Test the fit of the pump in the hole, and if needed, use a widening bit to enlarge the hole further if it’s too small.

Check to see if the straw of the soap pump is too long to fit inside the mason jar–if it is, cut the straw to the proper size. Make sure to cut at an angle for better suction.

Apply your glue to the base of the soap pump’s top part, then affix it to the lid of your mason jar. Let dry, then flip the lid with its newly-installed soap pump upside-down so that you can apply more glue to the underside of the lid–around the pump–to make sure it stays in place.

Allow to dry completely.

And you’re done!
