DIY Patriotic Mason Jars Into Drinking Cups – Kid Friendly Things To Do .com

DIY Mason Jar Cups

These mason jars are easily transformed into drinking glasses! You can adapt the colors for anything. I used Red, White, and Blue for all of the summer holidays. The kids love to use them as everyday glasses! And, I love the fact that there is a tight lid to prevent spills. Here’s what I did to make these cute holiday drinking cups!:

You’ll Need:

  • Mason Jars
  • Felt – Red, White, and Blue if you are using these for Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day
  • A hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Glue – I used Fabri-Tac (it’s expensive, but lasts quite a while. It sticks right away, and is waterproof!)
  • A Marker

On to the instructions:

  • I used the lid of the mason jar to give me a round about idea ( no pun intended 🙂 )of the size fabric to cut out
  • I cut a square of felt a little larger than the size of the lid

  • Then I used a hole punch to make a hole for the straw in the flat part of the lid – I should really brush up on my Mason Jar Vocabulary! I apologize! 🙂

  • I then placed my square of fabric over the lid with the hole, and marked with my marker the spot over the hole
  • I used sharp scissors to poke a hole in the fabric over the marked piece, and expanded the hole by cutting little slits in a star shape to fit the hole punch circle

  • I then glued the fabric, matching the hole up, to the flat piece of the lid
  • You can probably eliminate this step, and just trim the fabric to match the flat lid. But, I placed the lid on the jar to get the crease of a circle in the felt. I unscrewed the lid, and using the crease as a guide I trimmed the felt.

  • That’s it. Put it all together, and pop a straw in the hole punch piece!
  • If you want to add the little stars – I found a foil star garland at the dollar store and cut the stars off to add a little more patriotic flare!
