Considering our post on local coffee shops last week, I thought a DIY for a to-go mug may be appropriate. Pinterest had several ideas for turning a mason jars into travel mugs and there's even a plastic top you can buy to quickly convert a jar.
This was a pretty easy project and it would be a fun one to do with the kids so they could paint their own mugs. You may want some type of a cozy or sleeve if you're going to be using this mug for hot beverages but it would also be great for smoothies in the morning :)
Grommet Setting Tool
Follow the paint's instructions to paint your design on your jar and allow it to dry
Drill a hole in the center of your lid. I used my needle-nose pliers to widen the hole so it would fit my grommet. I then removed any pieces of metal on the backside of the lid.
Use your needle-nose pliers to press back the spikes on the bottom piece of the grommet so that it will press flat to the lid when hammered together.
Use your grommet setting tool to hammer the grommet into place
Follow the instructions for the waterproof glue to glue the 2 lid pieces together
