So I was at the hardware story today buying fly strips (exciting, I know) when I saw something clever. Being sold in bundles of two were lidded mason jars with straws. I was intrigued, and probably would have bought a few, if they hadn’t cost $8.00 each. I picked up a jar, looked at how the straw hole was made, and figured it could do this myself. I carried the jar over to a helpful hardware guy and he helped my find the rubber hole cover, which is a grommet. The grommets cost $0.50 each.
So I brought the grommets home and asked my husband to pretty please drill the holes. It took him all of 10 minutes to drill the holes and place the grommets. I was going to do a step-by-step how-to for this easy project, but I did a quick search and of course someone already did a great one.
So if I understand this correctly, this is in essence a tip resistent drinking glass then? I admire your fast ingenunity in seeing how easy this could be to recreate for yourself.
Laura, that’s right. These are great with the kiddies. Mason jars, as you well know, are shatter resistant so not only do they reduce spillage, they are unlikely to break as well. The kids also think they are really cool because we “made” them at home.
