As most who have experienced a break-up know, friends are essential in the recovery-support system. Just recently getting out of a relationship, I have depended immensely on my friends to lift my waning–and sometimes whining–spirits. So I have decided to show my appreciation to my indispensable amigas with some homemade Mason jar soap dispensers.
Mason jars: I got mine at Walmart in a pack of 12 for $8.47.
Soap pumps & refillable soap bottle: depending on the amount you need.
Drill: I have seen other people use a nail and a hammer to make the hole in the top so that is an alternative.
Step 1: Make the hole in the center of the jar top to fit the soap pump. You can use an electric drill or a hammer and nail. I used metal cutters to enlarge the hole once I made an initial opening.
Step 2: Paint on the primer.
Step 3: Spray paint.
Step 5: Super glue the soap pumps onto the jar lids.
Add the soap and you’re done!
Attached to the dispensers, I wrote a note that says, “Thank you for being there for me. I’m lucky to have such a SOAP-portive friend!” Gotta love those puns!
It is just not a Hilaryous gift without some cheesy pun!
