DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser tutorial from dovecottageblog.com

I've recently discovered a love for Mason jars, and after finding them for a complete steal of 59p each at my local Home Bargains, I've bought a few more than I know what to do with! So, what with currently trying to sort out the bathrooms in my house too, I thought why not turn them into a soap dispenser! It was really quick and easy, and here's how I did it.

You will need:
Mason jar (I used the smallest version available)
Hand wash with pump
Strong pair of scissors
Knife
Marker pen
Chopping board 
String or twine (for decoration, if wanted)

Method:
1. Pour the hand wash into the mason jar, then use the empty hand wash bottle to measure a hole for the pump. To do this remove the plate part of the lid and draw a circle around the bottle top onto the underside.

2. Next score a small hole into the lid with a knife, then cut the metal down to the marked circle using a strong pair of scissors. This is a bit tricky so be careful, you might like to put a chopping board under the lid (or get your husband to do it, like I did!)

3. After you've cut the metal, fold it back to create a hole big enough to push the pump from the hand wash bottle through.

4. Replace the lid and voila! You might need to chop a bit off the end of the pump so it fits neatly into the jar. I also decorated the jar with some twine to jazz it up a little.

So easy to do and in total this cost me £1.58! Get in touch if you have any questions at all - or tag me in your creations over on Instagram (@dove_cottage), I'd love to have a look!
