SPD: MASON JAR TO GO CUP W/ CUPCAKE LINER



Happy SPD Day!

If this doesn't project doesn't scream summer, I don't know what does. 

Who can possibly hate a mason jar?!

I guess I can only speak for myself here, but I absolutely love them, and am in love with this simple project.  They actually sell these to go cups on Etsy, but why buy when you can make them on your own for so cheap?

You'll see how easy it is. Let's get started...

What you need:
+Mason Jar 
+Sharpie/pen
+A drill-or for those who don't want to use a power tool-just use a hole punch that cuts through metal!
+1/4" Rubber Grommets (found at hardware store for $.69 cents-eyeball the size that a straw can fit through)



What You Do:

Figure out where you want your straw to go on the lid. 
Place a rubber grommet where you want the hole to go.
Make a mark in the center with the sharpie or pen.

This is where you will drill or hole punch the hole for the straw. If the hole isn't large enough, just keep punching or drilling around the hole to make it bigger to fit the straw. 

Take your grommet and push it into the hole. You don't want the hole too big because then your grommet will move around. 

Stick a straw through the hole and put the lid on top. Then, if you want to be creative and add a cupcake liner, just cut or punch a hole in the cupcake liner and then screw on the top to the jar! 

I adore how the cupcake liner gives it extra sass...
{please note: the cupcake liner isn't the actual lid-it just goes on top of the metal lid for decoration!}


In as easy as 1, 2, 3 (ok and 4), you have your cute new to go or travel mason jar!
My "pinspiration" for this project came from this pin/tutorial, and then I just decided to add the cupcake liner. 

*Katie tested, Pin APPROVED!*

What do you think?! Did you know it could be done that easy?
You could use these for parties..as favors..the sky is the limit friends!

Now it's your turn to show me what ya got...
