My husband came up with this really fun idea! I’m so blessed to have a husband that likes to do things like this with me. Our girls thought they were fantastic too. I love the vintage look to the cups. I think mason jars are so beautiful. Here is how we did it!
1). Mason Jars–We bought the 24 oz size. They are great for large drinks. You could definitely get away with smaller jars though! Buy Ball® Regular Mouth Pint Jars with Lids and Bands- Set of 12 (by Jarden Home Brands) here.
2). 3/8″ neoprene grommet (one per jar). Buy Gardner Bender GHG-1538 3/8-Inch Hole Grommets, 5-Pack here.
3). 1/2″ spade bit. Buy DEWALT DW1587 6 Bit 3/8-Inch to 1-Inch Spade Drill Bit Assortment here.
4). Starbucks cold beverage straw or straw of similar width. Buy Reusable Straws – Stainless Steel Drinking – Set of 10 + Cleaner – Eco Friendly, SAFE, NON-TOXIC non-plastic here.
Cut hole in the lid of the mason jar (photo above). Make sure you place it on a flat wood surface and keep the drill speed slow to medium. This helps stop it from puckering and cuts a smooth circle. Then place grommet in the hole (photos below). Straw will then fit nicely through the grommet!
Done! Enjoy you spectacular summer beverages!
