DIY Lotion Pump Dispenser ~ Recycle those plastic containers and lotion pumps into something useful

I always seem to have hand cream left in my pump bottles and hate to waste it ~ rather than get myself all frustrated trying to scrape the cream out of the bottle, I used a plastic container, some duct tape and the spent lotion pump to make my own usable container.

    FYI another post showed how to use acetone (nail polish remover) to remove the print on the container. It leaves a nice white surface that can be painted on or written on.
