Here are the tools I used. The brick was laying on this outdoor table and so I used it instead of going to get a hammer. The pump came from an empty face wash bottle. I made the hole in the lid by tapping the top of the small screwdriver until it broke through. Then I used the needle nose pliers to enlarge the hole. I was careful to leave the hole as small as possible, yet be able to force the pump through. This way, it fit tightly and so I didn't use any glue. Some hot glue on the underside would have secured it better and I may still do that. But, for now, its working great!
If I had more time I would have spray painted the lid black to match the pump. I can't wait to make more of these. I need one in each bathroom filled with colorful hand soap. They'd make great gifts.
It is filled with a small bottle of dish soap and water, sitting on the kitchen sink. Don't you think it fits our farmhouse kitchen perfectly?
After making the mason jar soap dispenser, I checked on the rose I had been rooting under a mason jar. There's new growth, so I know the roots have grown. After letting it adjust to life outside the mason jar, I'll set it out in the yard. CLICK HERE to read about how I root roses with a mason jar.

Here's an old gallon size jar, but not technically a Mason jar. I found it at Mama's. I have lots of ideas for it.
