Cheapista is my name and being cheap is my game! I could not imagine paying the price for a mason jar cover with a convenient straw hole. Even the ones that are reasonably priced have a high cost for shipping. That left me on a hunt for a cheaper way to get what I wanted.
If you are cheap like me or just a total DIY buff then here ya go!
Drill Bit 5/8″
Rubber Grommet 3/8″ ID (Inside Diameter)
Mark where you want your straw to be placed, some may like it in the center, but others might like it closer to the edge.
Drill your hole and cut off metal hangings, be careful because they are sharp.
Put your rubber grommet in place, again do this with caution because the metal is sharp.
Insert Straw and drink up!
Tip – Rubber grommets can be found in most hardware stores and can be purchased at a discount via ebay. I bought my grommets at Lowe’s, they came in a pack of 2 for $1.04. They are in the same section as the screws in a draw labeled hard to find.
