I found hundreds of these jars at a flea market in Judsonia, and was so excited because these old blue ones seem impossible to find. I've read several tutotials on how to make them, and they all did them a little differently. I want to show you step by step how I made mine. You will need a mason jar, hammer, nail, pliers, a tall soap pump, and gorilla glue epoxy.
Some of the old mason jars have glass underneath, so after hammering through with your nail, you will need to pick out the glass piece by piece. Afterwards, I make sure to wash the lid out with soap and water just to make sure all of the small glass pieces are gone.
Next, I got some needle nosed pliers and slowly pulled them apart to open the hole in my lid. I opened until my soap pump fit snugly into the hole.
After applying the glue, I let the lid sit upside down on the counter for at least 4-5 hours.
And that's it! Fairly simple to make and very inexpensive.
