Today I am going to share how to make a soap dispenser out of an old pickle jar. It sounds weird, but it is actually really cute and quite resourceful. All you need is a jar (see below), a pump from a plastic soap dispenser, a power drill, scissors, glue, and some paint.
I started by enlisting Joey and his power drill. I had him measure the diameter of the pump and drill an appropriately sized hole into the jar lid.
Then he helped cut the pump’s straw so that it was just slightly shorter than the jar’s height.
I didn’t like the color of the jar’s lid, so I painted it with some leftover chalkboard paint. Then I used superglue to affix it to the pump.
After letting the glue fully dry, I screwed the lid onto the jar and gave it a few test pumps.
It’s as simple as that. I filled the jar with hand sanitizer instead of soap, but it could be filled with liquid soap, shampoo, conditioner, or whatever you please.
