Mason Jar Tumblers...
I fell in LOVE with them then and there!!
Hers had plain lids, as do most of mine, but I had a fun lid and ring set that I though just looked soo cute!
So how to make these darling little drink holders, well they are even easier than the Soap Dispenser I showed you the other day.
So here we go...
Tools: Drill with a 7/16 drill bit and tin snips
Supplies: Pint or Quart Mason Jar, a Mason Jar lid and Ring, a Polycarbonate Drinking Straw, and a Rubber Grommet. (I will talk more about what that is in a little bit)
Start with screwing the lid on the jar and then drilling a hole through the top.
Once again make sure to have a hand holding the jar while you are doing this.
Also, I did this in an old ice cream bucket because it would catch all the little metal shavings that were made when you drilled through the lid.
See all those little shavings, you don't want them flying around your house if they don't have to.
Also if you have any little pieces still hanging on you will want to take your tin snips and clip it off.
Next you will need this little guy.
This took me a while to figure out what it was, when I saw it on the one for sale on Etsy.
Well this is a...
It's something that is used in auto mechanics. That's all I know about them and that's probably all you care to know about them.
This is important if you are going to make this you need to make sure you get the right size, or it wont work for the straw to go through.
You will need a grommet with a 3/8 Bore Diameter (BD) or Inside Diameter (ID) (that's the middle where the straw will go through) The straws have a diameter of 3/8 and fit perfectly in there once they have been installed.
Once you have those little guys, you will just take them and carefully push them in to place. Be careful with this, because you don't want to cut yourself on the hole...it's very sharp!
Now wash everything up and make sure all the shavings are out of the jar, then fill the jar with your favorite drink, screw the lid on, put the straw in and sit back and enjoy!
That's an order!! :)
This is my big iced coffee drinking jar, that is currently filled with sweet tea, but whatever.
FYI: if you use the quart jars for the glass, the y don't fit in cup holders in your car....grrrr!
So stay tuned, the beginning of next week I will be doing a give away with both of these DIY projects!
Have a wonderful weekend, I know I will. Little man and I are heading to MO to go and watch my oldest nephew graduate from high school (tear). I think this means I'm getting old! :)
