Don’t you just love a good party? When I’m hosting an event, I love finding cute decorating ideas to help make the party stand out without blowing the entire budget. This is a fun and easy way to snazz up your drink glasses and color coordinate them to match your event. Perfect for a baby or bridal shower, or even a backyard BBQ. So toss those plastic cups, whip up a few of these mason jar drink toppers and have fun!

You Will Need:
- Mason jars* with lid rings; any size (I used pint size)
- Scrapbook paper
- Glad press n’ seal
Lay your paper face down on a hard, flat surface. Cut a piece of Glad press n’ seal just a tad larger than your paper, and lay it sticky side down onto the back side of your paper. Smooth it out, then use your fingers to firmly rub the press n’ seal, adhering it to the back of the paper. This is going to give the paper a bit of a waterproof-like backing so it doesn’t get too soggy if the drinks splash onto it.
Using the flat portion of the mason jar lid, trace circles onto the paper, then cut the circles out. Don’t spend too much time making perfect circles, you won’t be able to see the edges of the circles once they’re under the lid rings. The press n’ seal should stay firmly in place when you cut the circles out.
Use a hole punch to make a hole for the straw, or if you’re like me and can’t for the life of you find what you did with your hole punch, just use a sharp object to make the hole. I used an awl to poke a small starter hole, then used scissors to make it a little bigger.
Insert the straws into the holes, then lay the drink toppers on top of the jars. Place the lid rings over the paper and screw it in place.
