Ribbon and Lace Mason Jar Cups

Confession: I have many, many unfinished projects and some finished that I still need to post; including my daughter’s First Birthday Party AND the Nursery. That is my New Years goal; to get all my unfinished/finished projects up on the blog… so here I go. :)

There was so much detail that went into Emmalyn’s First Birthday and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the party. I know I’m a total slacker about posting it.



One of my favorites from her party were these darling Mason Jar Cups filled with pink lemonade. I thought the ribbon and lace added the perfect touch.

These mason jar cups were very easy to make and they made quite the statement. I bought a case of mason jars from my local Fry’s, which I believe cost $8 for a dozen. Then I received these flower lids from the We Love Citrus shop. Aren’t they adorable? I also got some striped straws (which I’m pretty much obsessed with) from Cakes and Kids Too.


I found some cute polka dot ribbon from The Ribbon Retreat and the lace trim from a local fabric store called SAS. I attached my ribbon and lace with ribbon adhesive… however, a strong double sided tape would work great too. ;)


I thought the jars with lace needed a little something extra, so I added some twine and they were as cute as can be. Doesn’t baker’s twine make everything look better?


Simple as that! I thought they turned out so cute, and everyone loved drinking from them! The nice thing about these mason jar cups is       that they can be used over and over again. I love that. :)

I also love my friend Amy’s idea where  she used the lids that came with the jars and just covered them with scrap book paper to dress them up a little. So fun! The possibilities are endless!


P.S. I also made this cute little banner with some of the extra lace and twine that was SUPPOSED to go on top of the cake, but I totally forgot it. Don’t you hate that? Sorry I don’t have a finished picture… I so wish I did! It would have been really cute. Oh well… there’s always next time. ;)

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

    Very cute idea! I love the lids, they add the perfect touch of whimsy!

    I am not sure exactly what you did with the top. Did you put paper underneath the very cute cutout lids and just put a hole for the straw. My thought was that the liquid would easily come out if there was not something there.
    The idea is so unique – it could be used for many age groups – put goodies in and then have the jar/cup to use later as a great party for home or school.
    Use larger “used” jars – say mayo jars and fill with a wonderful fruit slushy to use with adults. I would make some themed – I live in southwest Louisiana and I can see using vinyl cutouts – gators, crawfish, and other good cajun ideas.
    Lovely idea!!!

    Oh my goodness these are precious. I’m on a mason jar kick; I made cupcakes in a jar for Christmas. I don’t have children yet, but this is definitely going in my inspiration file for when I do!

    These are so adorable! I’ve never seen jar lids like this, I’ll have to check them out! I feel your pain on forgetting the cake banner. Once I completely forgot to give out the favors that I slaved over! I’m sure the party was a hit!
