How to Make a DIY Foaming Hand Soap Pump from a Mason Jar

DIY foaming hand soap dispenser from a mason jar

This DIY foaming hand soap pump made from a mason jar is so handy for lots of reasons.

Most foaming hand soap bottles only hold 5-10 ounces of soap solution. A standard pint size mason jar holds a little over 16 ounces, so you will have to fill it up less often!


This foaming soap pump is also way cuter than the plastic ones you buy with or without branding.

Of course, if you love farmhouse style accessories for your kitchen or bathroom, you'll also love having the ability to turn a plain or ugly soap dispenser into a pretty mason jar soap pump.

Using a plastic lid like I do in this tutorial also makes it easy to make your own foaming soap pump without having to worry about rust like you do when you use a traditional mason jar lid.

If you have previously purchased foaming hand soap, you can reuse the top of any existing foaming hand soap bottle to make this project!

DIY Foaming Hand Soap Dispenser Directions:

I repurposed a well-used foam soap bottle to get the top pump portion and just the threaded bottle top.

To do this unscrew the pump from the top of the bottle.

Then cut the threaded top off the old bottle with sharp scissors or a utility knife. You want to keep the shoulder of the plastic bottle and a little bit of the bottle (just enough to grip) attached.

ProTip: Be careful with the cutting as the plastic can be rather sharp during the process.

See? The cut edges are all covered from the outside.

If desired, you can use a little bit of sandpaper to smooth the inside edges if you have little ones to help you make the soap to ensure there aren’t any sharp edges.

Now fill your jar with your preferred foaming hand soap solution, screw the lid on and you're good to go!



That's it!
