What about turning a Mason jar into a soap dispenser?

I’d been wanting to make a soap dispenser out of a vintage blue mason jar for a long time.  (I thought it would look extra snazzy in my kitchen.)  So I searched antique shops for the perfect sized jar that didn’t require tons of dough.  And happy day, I ended up finding the perfect jar last year during a thrift store run with my mom.  The jar was in great condition including the metal lid with the ceramic insert.  But there was a teensy little problem.  It appeared that I liked my new vintage jar too much to drill a hole in the lid.  (Yes, it’s true.)  So sadly, the soap at my kitchen sink had to make do being housed in a basic, plain white container.

Fast forward a year later.  Blue reproduction Mason jars are spotted in Target and Wal-Mart stores while crafters rejoice.  (They are sold by the case in Target and individually in the craft section of Wal-Mart.)  So I gleefully bought myself a new jar with visions of soap dispensers dancing in my head.

Okay, now on to the 5-minute transformation from blue Mason jar to rocking soap dispenser.

The metal lid on the jar wasn’t very thick, so all I did was take a screw (a nail would work too) and lightly hit it with the hammer against the top of the lid a few times.  I ended up with a hole about the size of a dime.

I then took a soap pump from another container and checked the fit. It fit perfectly, nice and snug. And there it was. My new Mason jar soap dispenser in under 5 minutes. A happy new addition to my kitchen sink.

So what about you?  Do you have a favorite 5-minute project?  (Or is knitting fashionable kitty clothes consuming much of your time?)
