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!!



Linking up at My RePurposed Life and these other linky parties!

      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!!

    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.

    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).
