Here's another eco-friendly project that I love! I recently came across this tutorial for mason jar cups that hold straws, and knew I had to make one for myself. It turned out wonderfully, and I thought I'd share mine here.
|What you need: A mason jar (mine is a regular-mouth 16-oz jar), a rubber grommet (9/32"), and a drill with a bit slightly larger than the hole in your rubber grommet.|
|(a grommet like this) I found mine at Home Depot for 97 cents or something.|
|Drill a hole in the lid. I found that it works well to keep the lid on the jar, and hold the jar between my feet so I could use my hands to stabilize and put force behind the drill.|
|The hole will look like this. If it's too jagged, you can trim off the shavings with metal cutters. Work the rubber grommet into the hole (takes some smooshing).|
|Now just wash it well to get rid of all the little metal shavings, add a straw, and you're done!|
