DIY Mason Jar Lid Coasters

 Summer time is here, and I am so excited to be outside on our back patio grillin’ and spending time with my husband and four boys.  We love to eat out on our back patio, so I have been sprucing it up the past few weeks.  (I will be sharing a “reveal” of my back patio on my blog soon, so be sure to follow along.)  Smile

Since we will be eating outside a lot this summer, I thought it would be fun to make some colorful mason jar lid coasters for our patio table.

DIY Mason Jar Lid Coasters

These coasters were so easy and inexpensive to make!

All you need is:

  • Wide mouth mason jar lids
  • Thin sheet(s) of Cork
  • Stamp of your choice
  • Permanent Ink Pad
  • Hot glue gun
  • Spray paint (color of your choice)


Step One:

Trace mason jar lid onto the cork and cut out circle.  (I found these pre-cut cork coasters at Hobby Lobby which made it even easier to cut out.)

Step Three:

Spray paint mason jar lids the color of your choice.  (I decided to use some red spray paint I already had.)

Step Four:

Stamp the cork circles with permanent ink.

I found my stamp at Michael’s, and I used my black StazOn ink pad.

I just love them!

And you could create so many different versions of these coasters.

If I were hosting a UK (University of Kentucky) party, I could paint the lids Kentucky blue and stamp a wildcat paw on the cork.  GO CATS!  Smile

If I were hosting a graduation party, I could paint the lids black and stamp a graduation cap on the cork.

If I were hosting a wedding party, I could leave the lids silver and stamp wedding bells or the couples monogram on the cork.

See?!!!  The possibilities are limitless!

If you make some for yourself, I would love to see what you create!

P.S.  I had these wide mouth jar lids left over from another project I recently completed on my blog.

Painted Mason Jars!

You can see how I completed that project HERE.


 Have a blessed day!!!



  1. I’m usually not so interested in “crafty” projects, but these are so easy and I could just use any old lid I had if it was big enough. I like how the edges work to keep the glass contained. Very cute.
    P.S. i also forgot your Maon Jar post which was also something I might try in the future. I like the iedea of still using the unpainted interiors for grains and such that I don’t wan’t exposed to the light. this is a good solution.

  2. Love it! Simple and so pretty!
    Could you please share the name of the red spray paint? It would match my patio cushions beautifully!

  3. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail.
    I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  4. I would like to use something like that indoors. What do you think about using fabric instead of painting. I’m afraid that the rings would scratch my tables.

  5. I’m thinking about making these coasters myself. I going to use the UK Wildcat Blue myself. Do you live in Kentucky?
