I’d love for you to see how easy it is to make these adorable mason jar straw lids in a matter of minutes! These will be great all summer long and are perfect for picnics to keep those pesky bugs out of your beverages!!
I just have to say that this post is dedicated to my sweet friend Jessica at Mom 4 Real. Jessica loves her mason jar drinks and accessories so this tutorial is for Jess. Not that she needs my tutorial…she is fully capable of making her own, but because I can’t drink out of a mason jar, or use a mason jar, or think about a mason jar (and accessories) without thinking of Jess, it is dedicated to her!!
This could not be easier! (I did 4 and found the best way to get smooth edges on your drilled hole is use a scrap piece of wood behind it.) Put your lid on your scrap piece of wood and drill down slowly until you are all the way through. I offset my straw hole to one side (not centered) just by choice.
If you happen to get a sharp edge, then just trim with some metal snips.
Carefully slip your rubber grommet through the hole.
Insert lid back on jar and put a straw in it! Told you it was easy!
The grommets are not food grade but they really don’t come in contact with the beverage at all so I am ok with that. Here is what the bag looks like and I found them in the small drawers in the nuts/bolts/screws aisle at The Home Depot. They were in the grommets section.
If you want to decorate them up for a party you can also see my chalkboard labels that I did for our Mickey Mouse Birthday party. In my shop I sell the Mickey Mouse Chalkboard labels along with Sesame Street tags, ovals and rectangles.
I’m thinking of mixing up a batch of my White Peach Sangria or my Copy Cat Lime-A-Rita to put in these cuties! Even my Cucumber, Lemon & Mint Detox Water or my Tropical Green Smoothie would be fabulous! What would you put in yours???
