Cute Soap Dispenser Solution
Blogland really needs another tutorial of how to convert a canning jar into a soap dispenser, so here’s how I made a cute soap dispenser out of an old Ball quart size jar.
I used the small mouth variety to keep the soap drips down the side to a minimum.
Couldn’t bear to drill into the original lid, so I used a pasta sauce lid.
I drew a circle of where I should aim my tools.
Used a “punch a bunch of holes with a nail because the drill wasn’t charged” technique.
Spray painted the lid.
Pushed the ring into the hole – went the wrong way the first time, figured it out with only a couple dings – spray painted again.
Screwed the fancy soap pump top into the ring.
Took a picture in the grass.
Here it is on the counter – serving its mission of making my counter cuter.
