Ball Jar Soap Dispenser.....Dollar Craft

I know, I know. These cute little Ball jar soap dispensers have been all over the ‘net, ‘specially my favorite, Pinterest! (By the way, come on by and follow me HERE .) But I just figured that on the off-chance of someone not finding the directions, you could use mine!

The way I did mine came out to $1.00! Yep, just one smack-a-roo. Thrifty and frugal, gotta love it! I already had the jar (given to me), so all I needed was the hand soap from my local Dollar Tree.

It was a cute dispenser anyway!

Here’s a quick list of what you’ll need:

1 Ball jar, any size
1 container of hand soap (be sure it also has the pump)
6000 glue, pliers, either a drill with large bit, or just a large nail and hammer

For the lid, all I did was start a hole in the center. I worked my pliers, pulling back the tin until I had a hole big enough that would accommodate the pump. (This part was easy, as the tin is not especially thick.)

As soon as you know it fits, take 6000 glue and glue the cap around the pump to the lid. I put it between two blocks to let it dry overnight.

Just be sure that the hose just touches the bottom of your jar (I had to cut mine a little to make it shorter). Pour in the soap, then attach the lid and jar ring. There you have it! So kitchey-cute, great for presents with jute twine or initials done in vinyl!
