DIY Mason Jar Cup with Straw
Author: 
Recipe type: DIY
Serves: 1 mason jar cup
 
Ingredients
  • Pint-sized canning jar (like this)
  • Canning jar lid (like this)
  • Canning jar ring
  • Rubber grommet (I got mine at Lowes)
  • Straw
  • ⅜" to ½" drill bit, depending on the size of your straw
Instructions
  1. The size of the rubber grommet you need will depend on the size of your straw. I have some fat glass straws from Strawesome, and I wanted to be sure my lids would work for them, as well as my cute paper straws. Therefore, I used a grommet with an inner diameter of ⅜", and a ½" drill bit.
  2. However, this will vary, depending on your straw, so play around a bit.
  3. Drill an offset hole in the canning lid.
  4. There were some raised/jagged edges, so we pounded them down a bit. You could also file them if you wanted. However, don't be too worried about this, because the grommet will cover a multitude of sins.
  5. Insert the grommet, wash the entire lid assembly thoroughly, and affix to your jar.
  6. Now fill 'er up and sip away!
