Mason jars, they aren't just for canning tomatoes. Well, according to Pinterest anyway.

Since all my garden has yielded is spaghetti squash and I now own more canning jars than a girl should. It borders on hoarding.

Mama with no makeup at 7 a.m. Not cute. Notice the piles and piles of laundry behind me.What'll need:

A 12 oz Mason jar

A 7.1 mm grommet

1/2 inch drill bit

Wire cutter or file (a file works better)

Chalk board paint, optional

Don't you love my husband horrible shoes?Step 1. Leaving the lid on the jar, drill a hole in the lid. You will need to tap the drill into the lid first, to give the drill some grip.

Step 2. File down any sharp edges. You can use wire cutters, but a file is easier.

Step 3. Shove that grommet down in the hole of the lid.

Terrible paint job.Step 4. Optional, pain a part of the jar with chalk board paint so that later you can write you name on it at parties and such.

I used a reusable straw that I got as a promotion. I love it. Now girl, go get you some pink lemonade!
