Festive Holiday Cups

4 Dec

Hosting a holiday open house and short on glass ware? Instead of asking guest to BYOCup instead try this crafty tip. Purchase a flat of small to medium sized mason jars. Not just for canning anymore I’ve seen people use them for candle holders, wedding decor and rice storage, so why not cocktail cups! Add some festive ribbon and rustic twine your cups can be the hit of the party!
