Gather supplies. Look for placemats that have an even design, one that is not too large. Dollar Tree, WalMart, Target, are all good places to look for inexpensive placemats.
Use your canning lids as a template and trace however many lids you need. Center the template lid over the placemat design to its best advantage.
Cut apart all of the circles, which makes it easier to trim each individual circle.
Trim each circle.
Using a large hole punch, punch a hole in each lid. This is for a straw. That's it, You are done!
Fill your canning jar with drink of choice, put plastic lid on, then cap with metal canning bands. Insert straw and you are ready to drink!
I have a variety of holidays & seasons I have made these for. Adds a fun decorative element to any party.
