Book Club Fun & DIY Mason Jar Tumblers

posted in: Simply Home | 10
Happy Weekend!!

I’m in a book club, and we have the best group of ladies ever!! This last month we wanted to meet and do more than just discuss a book. We wanted to include food, fun, and a little bit of DIY!!

We started planning the food first. I was hosting this meeting and provided  vegetable pasta salad. In addition we had a wonderful meal of fruit, bread, Beer cheese, hummus, and plenty of dessert!

Don’t those Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies look delish? They were. I had three of them…

Then there was our Beer Cheese, Hummus, and M&Ms spread out on the coffee table..

DIY Mason Jar Tumblers

Besides food, we thought doing a simple DIY project together would be fun. I think we picked the PERFECT project. It was as easy as 1, 2, 3! (I got the idea from Five 4 Five Meals.)


Drill a hole using a 1/2″ drill bit. Clean edges.

Shove a rubber grommet (size depends on straw) in the hole.

squeeze in grommet



Wash. Add a fancy straw and enjoy!!

    • Yes, the strawberry dessert was so good. All the food was good that night. The Mason jar tumblers are so easy to make – it was the hit of the night!!

  4. I need to try the mason jar straw tumblers. I thought of making a hole in the lids but never thought about using a rubber grommet. Thanks for the instructions. And thanks for featuring my cobbler this week. Bless you.

  5. Did you find the rubber washers locally? I have tried several times over the past year with no luck. If you did find them in town I would love to know where!

    • I found them at Ace Hardware. I’ve seen them at both locations in town (though if you want a lot of them, you might have to buy from both locations).
