Kara, here's a link to what we have right here on HT.
hey Kara. I just made 2 of these. I had my son drill a hole in the center of the lid being careful not to get it too big. He got it just right so the spout is wedged in tight.
just drill slow and keep moving the bit around the edges making the hole bigger a little at a time. Then I used a hammer to flatten down any rough pieces on the underside and paint both sides
When I did mine, I took a screwdriver and hammered the top of the seal to form an "x". Then took needlenose pliers to open the "x" & tried the pump assembly to get a nice tight fit. Also, I did not put my pump right in the middle of the lid - I put mine close to the side so that the soap / lotion would be easy to pump into the hand & not get all over the lid.
@Z Excellent help for Kara, right here on HT! WTG! xo
Thank you @Sia. I hope she knows how to get back here and find the info.
I had a guest blogger write about this on my blog here: http://www.decoradventures.com/2011/05/how-to-make-mason-jar-soap-dispenser.html
