Jar to go cups!

Jar to go cups!

What do you do with old jars… Upcycle them! (Of course.) I have seen this awesome idea all over pinterest and instagram and have been very eager to try it out. I am only twelve and therefore was not aloud to use a drill for the hole at the top but i came up with a new way, hammer a drill into the top. I was happy that I found this new technique as its the only one not using a drill that I have seen online so far, this means that anyone can do it!

WHAT YOU NEED:
1. Super cute straws, I got mine from Tiger for two pounds
2. A jar, any type will do, I have used an old rinsed out jam jar
3. A hammer
4. a small drill
5. Any decoration you want ( decorative tape, stickers ) however i have not decorated mine
6. Protective eye wear ( swimming goggles or glasses would do )

HOW TO:
1. Have all your equipment ready
2. Get your drill and put it right in the middle of the lid ( the lid still being on the jar)
3. Bash the drill through the lid ( wearing protective eye wear)
4. Move the drill around in the hole so it fits your straw
5. Add any decorations you choose
6. Fill it with a delicious beverage of your choice and enjoy!

So there it is , as simple as that. I love this DIY because it took me less than five minutes to complete and looks like you could have bought it, thanks for reading. xxx Gracie

Hipster DIY’s

Hipster DIY's

DIY’s are all the rage on social networking sites such as: Pinterest, Instagram, You Tube and many blogs. I have personally been addicted to watching and reading all sorts of DIY’s, therefore I have been truly inspired to begin making my own cute and easy ‘ Do It Yourself’s ‘. The thought of brightening up others peoples days by showing they can improve drab old things, and make them bright and fun exites me terribly. Now to the point… I am promising all of my readers ( I have been a little slack lately ) that i will post a DIY every other day, at least three a week. I hope that these upcoming posts will inspire and encourage you to add a splash of fun and cuteness to your life as they have done me. xxx LOVE GRACIE.
