Mason Jar Soap Dispenser
Here are some good uses for old mason jars and empty foamy soap pumps. I made a black one for my kitchen and a white one for my bathroom. Add a little ribbon and it will match any room!
My mom had empty black and white Bath & Body Works foam soap containers so I used the pumps from those. Then, I took an empty milk jug and cut a circle from the side. To size it right, I traced a mason lid onto the side of the jug before cutting. Then I cute another circle out from the middle to fit the soap pump. For the black one, I spray painted the plastic piece from the milk jug as well as the metal jar ring. For the soap, I used some cheap refill hand soap and mixed about 4 parts water to 1 part soap. The trick to foamy hand soap is that its basically just watered down regular soap with a fancy pump (and cheaper for companies to produce). So i mixed the soap and water in the jar and waited a bit until the foam went down. Cute huh?
