Down on the Farm Personalized Kids Cups DIY idea

This past weekend we had our youngest daughters 3rd birthday party, hard to believe our little one is 3.  This birthday she was very specific on what "theme" she wanted which was cows & piggy party.  So a little down on the farm was in order.  Today I wanted to share with you a cute idea I had for the drink cups for the kids!  

I love mason jars as many of us do, and if you ever saw my post on how I used the mason jars for vases and I sprayed painted the lids with chalkboard paint to write on, you will see that is what inspired this idea to up-cycle DIY for the drink cups.  I have seen around on Pinterest the daisy cut out lids that many have used and I think they are adorable.  I was lucky one day to be on Facebook when Kim from The Tomkat Studio listed them in her shop and I immediately ordered a set.   Here is the link Vintage Daisy Jar lids~ Shop Tomkat , I also bought my mason jars at Michaels.

Also, I discovered something new for cupcake toppers!  With a little mod podge & a paint brush I was in business!  

What you need for the mason jar chalk board tags is a drill to drill the hole, a spray paint can of chalkboard paint, twine & chalk of course!  

Drill the holes before you spray paint the lids.  I painted my lids and glued on the printables to the jars the night before the party and assembled them in the morning.  

What do you think?  The kids loved them, and the chilled watermelon juice they drank throughout the party! Also, take a look of her cows and piggy balloons~ there was not a chance the real things were coming to my house.  

I will have more from Margaret's down on the farm birthday fair, I think I am still recovering from scrambling everything around from when the storms rolled in!  

Peace, Love & DIY Mason jar drink cups,


  1. My kids would certainly love them. They are a bit of an artist.

  2. The kids certainly loved them! Thinking perhaps by the looks of the photo's though that a double coat of the chalk board paint would be best!
