|My finished project|
What you need:
- Mason jar with a lid
- Soap dispenser top (which I pulled off a bottle of Dial soap)
- Hot glue gun
- Something to poke a hole in the top – I used a sharp-tip screw and a hammer
- Needle-nose pliers
This whole project only took me about 20 minutes to do. But first you need to get your Mason jar. I used the opportunity to purchase a jar from a local antique store. Pretty much any antique store will have a Mason jar floating around somewhere. The old Mason jars have the advantage of the cool galvanized lid. I suppose you could do this project with a new Mason jar and either add an old lid, or use the new lid and do something cool with it, like antique it. I may try that soon myself!
So using an antique Mason jar, take a hammer and a nail or sharp screw, and hammer it in the middle of your lid until it pokes through. The white ceramic stuff under the lid will crack and you can just pull the pieces out (I used a fork to wiggle the pieces out).
