Mason Jar Pump Dispenser – DIY

Mason Jar Pump!

A couple of weekends ago, I posted a scrumptious recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup (This recipe has been updated. Find the new recipe here… Pumpkin Spice Syrup–Improved Recipe, Saavy?). 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…

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!

Rory and I are loving our Mason Jar Pump Dispenser filled with Pumpkin Spice Syrup! I hope you find this DIY project easy and fun. Let me know if you give it a try.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. I’ve seen Mason jars used as soap dispensers but Ive never seen anyone use the short jars. So cute! Awesome idea. Thank you for sharing and linking up to Scraptastic Saturdays. This post has been shared via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Have a wonderful week.

  4. I love this! I actually just bought a bunch of mason jars (just because I love them) and was determined to do a project with them soon. I also just got an order of Essential Oils in…may need to use this idea to make some fun Essential Oils lotion concoction to keep in there. Having fun co-hosting the #HomeMattersParty !

  5. I love this idea! I’m totally going to do it this summer. I love that you can add your own touches to make it match with the season or room decor. Thanks so much for sharing it! & thanks for allowing me to co-host at #homemattersparty

  6. That is a really great idea to use a pump from another bottle to make the mason jar pump dispenser! Mason jars uses are endless. #HomeMattersParty
