Coke Bottle Soap Dispenser

Finally, I am able to sit down and post one of the many projects I have been working on.  Do you guys remember these Coke bottles I had found a few weeks ago?  I got to thinking about how I needed a cool yet classy hand soap dispenser by my kitchen sink.  Here comes the fun part! I was getting ready to put away my shampoo bottle that I had just bought and noticed it had a salon pump (instant light bulb went off). I thought to myself I wonder if this would fit on top of those coke bottles I just bought.  So I took the pump off the shampoo bottle and put it on top of the Coke bottle and it was a perfect fit. I thought to myself "oh my gosh" this is too cool.   Here are the steps on how you can make your very own:

1). Find a vintage Coke bottle (I used a smaller one, it looks like it is approx. 8" tall or so)


2).  Use a salon pump from a Suave shampoo or lotion bottle. I haven't tried any other brand, but I prefer the silver pump.


3). I bought this 3 piece funnel set from Dollar Tree for $1.00.  I used a funnel that would fit into the bottle and then I poured my soap into the bottle.


4). I cut the tube on the pump to fit the bottle. I didn't measure it exactly on much I needed to cut. I just held it up to the bottle and measured. After I cut the tube I screwed the pump onto the bottle. I did not use any glue or anything it just screwed right on.



It was a fairly easy project and it only cost $2.00 ($1.00 for the bottle and $1.00 for the funnels). I already had the shampoo bottle and the hand soap. I am just so please with how it turned out!
