Recycled soap dispenser

So i have been seeing these cute soap dispensers made out of jars everywhere. And wanted to make some of my own. 
I was planning on making them out of the jars below.
But when i realized that the jar below (that was sitting on my window sill, pictured above) and the whatchamacallit on the right (i bought months ago at the thrift store to make a soap dispenser) FIT TOGETHER PERFECTLY!
So crazy... and perfect. i just poured the soap i already had into the jar and popped the whatchamacallit on top. It was just tight enough to not fall off when tipped upside down and not too tight that i couldn't get it off.
Then my husband drilled a hole in the top of one of my extra mason jars and i put the white watchamacallit (that came in the green disposable soap above) on the top of the mason jar. 
and WA LA! My dish soap and hand soap beautifully displayed in cute jars for free! 
I'm thinking about putting a black chalk board paint label on them but we'll see how it goes.

these are great! I think they look perfect they way they are but would be cute with chalkboard paint, too.

I think these are adoreable and the chalkboard paint would be just the perfect touch ;-)

That's what I use in the kitchen for me... a glass one and I found a plastic look-alike for the kids to use in the bathroom.

I have been wanting to make these as well for the kitchen and kids bathroom. After you drilled the hole in the lid and stuck the pumper thingy in...is it wobbly or how did you secure it? Love the chalkboard paint idea!
