I use mason jars for everything and matter of fact, I have tons of them around the house.
Some are in use, others are just sitting on shelves waiting. But they don't wait around for long because I'm always finding different uses for them.
For a while I've loved the look of the mason jars with the pump lid for dispensing soap in your kitchen or bathroom, but I didn't want to have to buy them when they're so easy to make.
I figured that it needed a hole in the lid for the pump to fit through. So let me show you how I made this one.
Liquid Soap of your choosing, mine is Lavender (of course). A mason jar, a big nail, hammer, and a pair of pliers.
The first thing I did was find the middle of the lid, then using the hammer and nail I poke a hole through it. Of course it's not big enough for the pump to fit through, so I then took the pliers and going in from inside of the lid, I pulled back the sides of the hole.
Kept doing that and trying the pump to see if it would fit. Once it got big enough for the pump to fit through snuggly I removed the pump........then with my hammer I pounded the sharp edges down around the hole, replaced the pump and used my hot glue gun to glue it in place.
Fill the jar with the soap and pop the lid on tightly. That's it!
Now usually the most common look is using the rusted lids, but I didn't have any of those around and again, I didn't want to spend extra money, just wanted to use what I already had on hand :)
This one is for my kitchen.........
and it sits on my sink. I love it :)
I already made another two for the bathrooms, just have to get more liquid soap to fill them up.
