Mason Jars are useful items to the extent that they can be reused and recycled unaccountable times. Usually, mason jars are used as storage containers of food products; and there are times when some end in storage as unneeded. Instead of getting rid of it, it could also be used as a dispenser. We require dispensers to store in soaps, liquid soaps in our bathrooms or near a kitchen sink to store in dish washing liquid soaps. Transforming a mason jar into a dispenser is a useful DIY project to add in your household items. Now days commercially mason jar dispensers are being put to sale but a handy DIY tutorial will help you make one easily and at no expensive cost.
Instructions To How To Make A Mason Jar Dispenser:
Making Of A Mason Jar Dispenser
What You’ll Need:
A mason jar with its lid
An old plastic soap dispenser (you could also buy a new pump of a dispenser)
Hot glue gun
Drill and Hole saw (size depends on the diameter of your soap dispenser’s threads)
A cutting knife
A round metal file
Sharpie or any other marker
Clamps to hold mason jar lids from spinning while drilling the hole in it
Primer and paint (optional)
First, remove the lid from the jar. Usually the lid is divided into two parts. Take the flat disc of the lid and using a sharpie or marker, mark the diameter of the pump that will be inserted within the lid. Take the lid part of an old soap dispenser pump, place it exactly at the center of the lid and mark it.
Next, using a drill and a hole saw of the required size, drill a hole right in the center of the marked lid. Use a clamp to hold the lid in position. You could also use any other machine that can help create a hole the size of the diameter of the soap dispenser’s lid. When done use a round file to smoothen the jagged edges of the newly drilled lid.
Once done take the entire lid and coat it with desired paint color. First, spray or paint a coat of primer over it, let it dry for few hours completely and then coat a layer of your choice of paint.
Next, when it has completely dried, maybe after a whole day. Inside the jar pour in some liquid soap. Place in the dispenser pump into the lid and secure it by sticking it with a hot glue gun from under. Let it completely dry, secure the lid over and it is ready to use.
