Mason Jar Goblet Tutorial

The oldest son of my best bud Jamie is getting married later this month. (Congrats Trevor and Chelsea!) It will be a country themed wedding, and the bride/groom want Mason jar goblets for the reception. So, being the crafty and thrifty kind of gal that I am, I told Jamie that I could make the goblets for a lot less than they would pay for them for at a specialty shop!

Here's how I made them:

I purchased 2 glass candlesticks from the Dollar Tree for a buck each. I then picked up two Mason jars with handles from Hobby Lobby using a 40% off coupon. I also bought some Liquid Fusion adhesive at Hobby Lobby, which will hold the the glass pieces together nicely.

Begin by thoroughly washing and drying all of your glassware:

Next, squeeze a generous amount of Liquid Fusion around the top rim of the candlestick. Place the Mason jar on top of the adhesive area of the candlestick, centering the candlestick on the base of the Mason jar. Repeat with the second goblet and set aside to dry.

Once the adhesive has completely dried, and the jar is firmly attached to the base, tie some pretty coordinating ribbon to the handles of the goblets. Since the wedding colors are black and red, I chose red satin ribbon and black polka-dot organza ribbons for my bows. Here's another look at one of the finished goblets:

And there you have it...cute, country Mason jar goblets for a fraction of the cost that you would pay for them at a boutique!

I hope you've found this little tutorial helpful and that you have a wonderful day!!

Happy Crafting!
