Create your own soap dispenser using a mason jar and a plastic pump. This cute dispenser is inexpensive and easy to make. You can use any kind of jar with a lid, but Mason jar lids are a little thinner than the typical jar and the inner lid is flat which makes it easier to nail or drill a hole into. You can paint the lid, the jar, both or neither. Add ribbon or twine or raffia. Or add your own special touch to this project.
