Ball Canning Jar Soap Holder

soap jar

I wanted to use one of my pretty blue Ball canning jars as a soap container for the kitchen sink. Hate seeing those ugly plastic bottles out, but wanted the convenience of keeping it on the counter.

Found a cheap soap dispenser at Dollar Tree and took out the plastic insert.

Poked hole in canning jar lid with screwdriver, then wiggled screwdriver around to widen the hole until the insert fit snugly.

Spray painted the canning jar lid black.

Reassembled after lid dried.

So simple and so fast!  Total cost was only $1 since I already had the Ball jar and paint.

It looks really pretty with the light coming through it- funny how something so simple can bring a smile to your face!

I know people have been doing these for years, I was just happy I finally got around to it.
