DIY: How to Make a Glass Sippy Cup

how to make a sippy cup dyi

DIY-glass-sippy-cupIn this DIY Mommy Hack, we’ll show you how to turn your mason jars into a glass sippy cup. Glass sippy cups are often hard to find and pricey, ranging from $12 to $19 per cup. Our mason jar sippy cup will range in price from $3 to $10 depending on the size of the mason jar.  Let’s get started!

*Last month we walked you through how to make your own glass baby bottle, you can check that out here.

INGREDIENTS

  • Glass mason jars regular neck 12, 8 or 4oz.   Use regular neck mason jars only, the spout will not work with the wide neck mason jars. We recommend the 4oz or 8oz for younger children as glass is on the heavier side and it will be easier for them to hold.
  • The screw-on rings provided with regular neck mason jarsMason-Jar-Sippy-cup
  • This Nuby silicone spout:  Be sure to use this spout. Nuby makes many different bottle spouts and this is the only one that will work.  Trust us, we have tried others.

INSTRUCTIONS

Place the Nuby spout inside of the ring provided with the mason jar and screw the ring onto the mason jar.

HASSLE-FREE OPTION

In a rush and just want to buy a ready-made mason jar sippy cup?  Check this out!

Above is the JellyJackets Silicone Mason Jar Sippy!  You can use the silicone screw-on cap with any regular neck mason jar, the same goes for the silicone sleeve.  Here is a Amazon Link to purchase.

VARIATIONS

If you are looking for a hard spout glass sippy instead of a soft spout like the Nuby spout listed above, here are some options.

Ball Sip and Straw Lidsball sip and straw lids  These are little plastic disks that sit inside the ring of the mason jar. The hole can be used to sip from or use the straws to create a glass straw cup.

ILidsIlids-Sippy-cup-lids   ILids are neat because the top opening can be sealed shut when you are not using the sippy. *ILids are wide mouth so you will need to purchase wide mouth mason jars.

Cuppowcuppow-mason-jar-lids  These are plastic inserts that sit inside the ring of your mason jar.

 

PROTECTIVE COVERS

Glass Guardianmason-jar-bottle-sleeve is a family based veteran owned business that makes high quality silicone bottle covers right here in the USA.  The best part is that these covers fit onto most 8oz mason jars.  What we love is that unlike some other brands that just wrap around the sides of the mason jar, these fully cover the bottom of the mason jar as well.  Plus there are little raised circular bumps on the covers which helps improve the grip for little hands.

As with all glass products we recommend only using them with adult supervision.
