I store nuts, and seeds, and dressing in jars. I make raspberry jam in jars.
Sometimes I eat my salad out of a jar, I drink my smoothies, bloody marys, and bourbon out of jars.
I even make iced tea in a jar! A big ass jar...
I think mason jars are the best all around container. Not to mention they are pretty fricken cute.
And now I'm taking jars to the next level...
Introducing: Travel Cup Jars!!!
You're totally stoked on this idea aren't you? You can't stop thinking about how awesome these jars would be and you're begging your dad to grab a drill and help you make these.
You're not? Well I was. And so make those jars we did!
All you need is:
- jars with lids
- reusable straws- I found these color changing ones at target!
- a drill (I have no idea what size we used)
- metal file
- little rubber circle things (ask a hardware store)
Basically you just drill a hole slightly bigger than the straw in the circle top, file it down with a metal file. The holes we drilled came out really wonky so we went to a hardware store and got those black rubber circles to put around the straw. This covered the crazy drill holes and keeps the straw nice and snug.
Now I can take my smoothie on the road with no fear of spilling! I can be a little clumsy, but I fully rock it.
I'm in love with my new jar mugs. They would make awesome party favors like these guys did.
Things to consider: I think with more practice they would look even better, spray painting the tops would be adorable, and well these are completely awesome!
