My inspiration for this project came from the September edition of Country Living magazine. I saw this photo and knew I had to try to copy it.
I measured the hole size I needed to drill into the top of the mason jar lid. It was 3/4” and I wish I had a drill bit for metal. I used a drill bit for wood and it worked but it was difficult and left a small burn mark on the lid. The next one I make I will purchase a bit for metal. I am also on the look out for a pump that is black or silver, it would look better and make a great gift. I was excited to make this within 5 minutes and for free.
After drilling the hole, I trimmed the pump to the correct length, and added hand soap. It was that easy.
