I Spy a Mason Jar

    A month ago I saw these fabulous mason jar travel mugs for sale at Buc-ees in Madisonville. They were so simply made I couldn’t wait to make one myself. I haven’t been able to find any tutorials on how to make these; I’ve only seen them for sale on Etsy. So I sort of figured it out with Michael’s help, of course.

     You’ll need Waterproof Gorilla Glue, a tall Mason Jar, a drawer pull, & a handful of rubberbands. Oh & a heavy book!

     Beforehand, wash & dry the jar & lid. Then with a wet rag, dampen the spot on the jar where you plan to attach the handle. Place a small amount of glue onto the ends of the drawer pull & immediately press onto the jar. Lie the jar on its side & hold the handle in place until it does not slide off the jar. Be careful.

     Let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then wrap a few rubberbands tightly around the jar & handle.

     Place a very heavy book opened on top of the jar, like so. Let it dry like this for 2 hours.

     Then you can use it! I’ll be using mine today on a short roadtrip with my sister & Jordan. We’re going to my aunt’s house & then a friend’s wedding. Just pop the lid on & you’re good to go. You could even decorate the jar front with pretty jewels, etc. 

 

I'd love to hear from you!
