I know everyone has seen these by now as they have been all over the internet so they are not new but, I tell ya, I had the hardest time finding the instructions for them. By instructions I mean, I needed to know what size grommet and drill bit I would have to locate or purchase. I wanted this to be a one and done type of project.
So, I’ll share my supplies with you in case you have been wanting to make these fun jars to keep your drinks bug free while outdoors this summer.
I picked up the blue Ball Mason Jars which are a limited edition. They were too pretty to pass up even though they cost a little more than regular jars. You’ll need a 3/8” drill bit, a drill and rubber grommets sized 9/16” outer diameter and 1/4” inner diameter. The grommets were the most difficult thing to locate but I found them at Lowe’s in the hard to find hardware drawers in the same aisle as the screws, nuts, bolts, etc. There are 2 grommets in each pack for a $1.04.
Then you simply drill a hole, carefully snip off any hanging pieces of metal and then fit the grommet down into it. Such a quick and easy project and would make a fun hostess or even housewarming gift.
