'To Go' Mason Jar Glasses DIY

We have a lot of mason jars left over from the wedding, A LOT. So I have been trying to think of stuff to do with them. While pursuing the internets I kept coming across 'to go' mason jars glasses and really like that idea. So with Will's help I created some of our own. It was pretty easy to do and I thought I would do a little DIY for you all just incase you wanted to give it a try. 

Things you will need
  • Mason Jars
  • Sharpie
  • Drill/Hole puncher that can cut metal
  • 1/4" rubber grommet (I got mine at Lowes but you can also get them at Amazon)
  • Straws
1 // Chose what size mason jar (I used quart sized). 2 // Mark where you want the hole for the straw to be. 3 // I picked the middle, but I have seen ones closer to the rim that look really nice too.
4 // Drill/punch a hole big enough for the grommet to fit through. 5 // Work the grommet through the hole, this might take a little bit. If you can't get it through try making your hole a little larger. 6 // Once the grommet is in rince off the lid and the jar to make sure any little pieces of metal from the drilling are all gone.
And bam you've got yourself a 'to go' mason jar glass. I've been really enjoying using them, in fact I have one full of water sitting right next to me as I type this :) I can't wait for the weather to warm up and have some friends come up for the weekend and we can fill them up with something nice and cold while we eat something yummy off the grill. Oh spring where are you?

There will be at least a couple more mason jar related DIY showing up on the blog, as I mentioned before there are still at least 80 sitting in our pantry right now collecting dust, hehe. I'm thinking I will have some in the bathroom, maybe turn some into lights, who knows what we shall make, but I think it's going to be a lot of fun! Let me know if you make some of your own.

    1. Hey Rosie, look for Kilner Preserve jars here in the UK, they look pretty much the same as the Mason jars. I just picked some up on Sale from Morrisons supermarket but you can also get them from places like Wilkinsons for a reasonable price.

      Happy Crafting <3

  12. Ummm, this is way too cute, but I would probably drop it and it would break. I have to leave my beloved mason jars at home! Still, can't say that this doesn't make me want to try it. -Jessica L
