September Craft Challenge – how to make a soap dispenser from a mason jar.

September Craft Challenge – make a craft using a mason jar.

Just in case you are new and this is your first time visiting, here’s the scoop.

August Craft 2For the Third Monday of every month, Amelia (my friend and fellow blogger) and I do a project or post based on one chosen DIY craft or theme, then we share our results and hopefully have inspired you to join the challenge. (The links to my challenge results can be found at the end of this post.)

Last month was our terracotta plant pot challenge, the picture to the left shows the candle holder I made.

This month the craft challenge item was a mason jar . I’ve wanted to make my own mason jar soap dispenser ever since I saw one on the blog One Good Thing By Jillie and that was back in 2012, be sure to check it out, it has a great tutorial.

This is my version of a mason jar soap dispenser and a quick description of how I made it.mason-jar-soap-dispenser

 

I made the hole in the lid with a drill and then used a dremel tool to make the hole big enough for the soap pump to fit.  I spray painted the lid and the ring black to match my bathroom, then glued the pump in with E6000 and once it was dry and filled with soap it was ready to go.  I can’t decide whether or not to chalk paint the mason jar ….what do you think?soap-dispenser
