It is easy to vamp up mason jars for any party. By using decorative paper or fabric and punching a hole in the top, you create the perfect look. Leading up to Kenzie’s spring party, I have said that I don’t want to just show you a picture of the final product. I want to make accessible tutorials so that you can re-create anything that fits your needs. Some people just see how to do it while others need a step by step. I want to make sure to accommodate the needs of those who appreciate a tutorial. This is an easy and inexpensive way to take your mason jars to the next level and fit any theme. It really doesn’t take much time either.
Once you have chosen your paper (I used patterned stock paper I had on hand), you flip it over and trace around your lid. Cut out your circle. You will use double stick tape to adhere the circle to the top of the lid. The picture shows a hole pre-punched. However, I ended up sticking the paper on first and then punching the hole through both. This saves time. I used a standard punch, but it was slightly too small to fit the straw, so I had to punch it once, move slightly to one side and punch it again to make it work.
Flip your lid back over and screw it onto the jar. Stick in some cute straws, and there you have it. Easy as pie. I’ve never really understood that phrase. Pie isn’t that easy. You can also cut out fabric to stick on the top. You will never have ugly mason jars again. If you saw my sister’s alternative to the sippy cup with her rubber bands, maybe you could spruce up your every day mason jar too. I love simple solutions that help take party decor to the next level. It’s extra good if it is cheap. I had the straws from the rainbow party we did last year, so the cost was for the mason jars, which I have wanted to own anyway. I hope you’ll consider this for your next party.
