Farmgirl Soap Dispenser


My blogging friend, Jaime, of Ngo Family Farm recently did a post on this cute soap dispenser. You can find the complete tutorial posted by Julia at Blissfully Content. You can read Jaime's post here which also includes a homemade citrus cleaner and her homemade vanilla extract project. By the way, Jaime takes the most amazing photographs, you really should check out her blog!!

This soap dispenser took me maybe all of 10 minutes to make! Seriously!! It took longer for the glue to completely dry than it took to do the assembly! LOL!! I have had this cute canning jar lying around for awhile and only ever use it for storage so I thought it would be the perfect container to use. I think it looks much more "country" than a store bought soap dispenser and probably a little classier than a bottle of dish soap sitting on the counter! ;-) Check out Julia's tutorial to see just how easy it is to make and be sure to visit Jaime for some lovely photography, great recipes and cute, cute pictures of her baby!

Linking up with Nancy at A Rural Journal for the Rural Thursday Blog Hop.

Alica said...

Nice! I've also seen them made out of the old blue pint jars. I'll have to put this on my "to do" list. I find lots of gift ideas on your blog...thanks!

Colin got me a pretty green glass one from Lehman's. We use bar soap in the bathroom, but I like the liquid in the kitchen. Sometimes I'm just too messy :)

Found this pinned on Pinterest a few months back and have plans to make them myself!

They are just adorable!

Jennifer,
I think every Farmgirl should make one! :)

Alica,
The original tutorial used a blue canning jar, wish I had one!

Candy C. said...

Paula,
I love green glass, I'll bet it is very pretty! :)

Julie,
I try to avoid Pinterest (too addicting) so I guess I'm behind the times! LOL!!

What a fabulous idea, Candy! Thanks for sharing ~ perhaps I can make one to hold dish liquid at my kitchen sink. I have lots of canning jars!

Candy C. said...

Julie,
I think a dish soap dispenser would be lovely! Hope you share when you get it finished! :)

Firstly, if you are to choose soap dispensers you need to determine the specific type of soap that’s usually used in bathrooms for which the device is sought.
