Mason Jar Pump Dispenser – DIY

DIY Mason Jar Pump - Life With Lorelai 500x500

Mason Jar Pump!

A couple of weekends ago, I posted a scrumptious recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup. The photo I used showed the syrup in a mason jar with a pump. I loved this idea, and decided to make one for myself. The project is really very simple, but Luke and I had a great time doing it together. Here is the How To…

DIY Mason Jar Pump - What You Need - Life With Lorelai 768x384

What You Need:

  • Mason Jar with Canning Lid and Ring
  • Plastic Bottle with a Pump (Soap Dispenser)
  • Nail
  • Power Drill with a Hole Attachment
  • Box Cutter
  • Stainless Steel Washer or a second Lid (optional)


  1. Empty contents of pump bottle and clean.
  2. Measure width of bottle threads. (We used a soap dispenser that measured 7/8″)
  3. Measure for the center of the lid, and use the nail to mark the center.
  4. Drill hole in the center of the lid and smooth edges.
  5. Use box cutter to slice off the top of the bottle with the threading and a little shoulder to keep it from pulling through the hole.

  1. Check fit of all pieces. Trim pump straw (at an angle) to proper height for jar.
  2. Slide bottle threading through the stainless steel washer, and then through the lid hole.
  3. Place pump through the threading and tighten.
  4. Place lid on jar and lock in place with the lid ring.


  • We used the stainless steel washer to give extra support for the pumping. You could also double the lid for more strength. Both of these are optional.
  • All pieces are removable for easy cleaning, especially when using the pump for food items.
  • DO NOT use zinc lids if you will be using the pump for food. Be sure to use the canning lids only!

  1. What a great idea and tutorial. Lorelai you are awesome! Pining it.

  2. Cindy Howell says:

    This is a great idea! Did you have any trouble getting the soap completely out of the pump?

  3. coversaralea says:

    This idea is so creative! Thank you for sharing!

  4. What a neat decorative idea, simple yet stylish and traditional. I’m not sure I’ll get that motivated, but I think it is so cute I will definitely pin 🙂

  5. I’ve seen these done before but never with part of the soap bottle to make it that easy!
    I’ve nominated you for the Squirrely Blogger Award. Make sure to stop by my blog tomorrow to see your nomination.

  6. Love your idea and it was so simple! Next week I have a mason jar post planned! It will go very well with this one!

  7. So fun! It looks pretty simple. That’s a great idea to use the top of the bottle to keep the pump from slipping through.

  8. Love the idea but where can I get canning lids? I want to try it! I love all the cute little things that can be done with mason jars.

    This seems easy. I have a random canning jar I’m looking to recycle. Can you do this with other jars? For example, I have small empty Coconut Oil jars.
