Supplies Needed: 

  • Mason Jars (one for each cup) – sizes will vary depending on how big you want the cups to be
  • Fabric
  • A hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Glue – I used Fabri-Tac – it’s waterproof and a great immediate stick


  • use the lid of the mason jar to give me a roundabout idea of the size of fabric to cut out

  • feel for the hole through the fabric and use a marker to mark the spot
  • use sharp scissors to poke a hole in the fabric over the marked piece and expand the hole by cutting little slits in a star shape
  • glue fabric onto the lid – matching the hole up, to the flat piece of the lid
  • trim the fabric corners so they do not hang over the lid too much
