So here we go....
Tools needed: A drill, with a 1/2 inch drill bit (the 1/2 inch was missing so I had to use the 7/16 and improvise), tin snips, and a box blade.
Supplies you need: Pint size mason jar, mason jar lid and ring, and a soap pump.
I found the soap dispenser replacement pump at Lowes. I think it cost me about $1.50 - 1.75. I know I'm a big spender. lol
Oh and the jar lid I used was actually one that I had canned with and took off a jar. I washed it up and am re-using it...
I love being able to get all the good I possibly can out of an item!
Ok screw the lid an ring on the jar and drill a hole in the middle...
or as close to the middle as you can...
of the jar.
You will need to have hand holding on to the jar, when drilling through the lid.
I put the jar in an old ice cream bucket to catch all the metal shavings.
See there were lots of metal shavings.
Now you may or may not have a little piece of metal that is still hangin' on if so, then...
Take your tin snips and cut it off. Like I said I didn't have a big enough drill bit, so I also used the snips to make the hole just a little bigger.
Now stick the pump through the hole in the lid and there you have it.
Now as you can see the straw that will stick down in the soap is a little long so it will need to be trimmed up.
I used a box blade to trim this one, but you might be able to use a pair of scissors.
Once you get it the right length put the ring over the lid and place on jar. I also took some hot glue and went around the pump to make it a little more solid, but I really don't think you need to do this.
Now add your favorite soap to it and enjoy.
I have another fun Mason Jar DIY that I will hopefully get to share here in a day or two.
