Easy DIY Mason Jar Foaming Soap Dispenser

Want a quick and easy project to add a little more pretty to your kitchen? Try turning a Mason Jar into a foaming soap dispenser??
The finished product...
My friend had given me this adorable mason jar {turned into a drinking cup} for Christmas but I quickly thought of another use for it. I 'borrowed' the top part from a plastic foaming soap dispenser and cut the whole in the mason jar lid large enough to accommodate it properly... and voila!
We used a drill press to create our opening, but you could also measure the size, draw a circle, and then use a regular drill to drill holes all the way around the edge of the circle (keeping to the inside of the line) until the opening is created.
I made my own foaming hand soap too, using some dish soap (see how they match!!).... more details on the blog.

    I am going to ask my husband to drill me a hole in the top of the mason jar. He has a "step drill". It looks like a cone end allows you to drill small holes and as it gets wider, it makes bigger holes. It's very easy to use as it fits into a drill motor. We use to punch holes in plastic containers for drainage when using them for plants.
