These Watermelon Margaritas in cute watermelon jars are so easy to make, and will make any summer party more fun!

2 Watermelon and Mason Jars

Place painter’s tape around the middle third of the jar, leaving about 1 ¼ inches of space at the bottom. Use craft glue to secure one row of cording at a few points around the jar. Paint the remaining space with Mod Podge, leaving ¼ inch of the jar blank at the bottom, then continue wrapping the cording around the jar until Mod Podge is covered. Secure the end of the cording with a dot of craft glue.

3 Watermelon and Mason Jars

Remove painter’s tape. Use a small brush and black craft paint to paint watermelon seed shapes on the jar. Let dry.

 

4 Watermelon and Mason Jars

To make the margaritas, blend cubed watermelon in a blender until liquified. Pour through a sieve set over a bowl with a pouring spout. Use a spoon to push the juice through the sieve. Discard remaining solids.

5 Watermelon and Mason Jars

In a pitcher, stir together the tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and 20 ounces of the watermelon juice. Add more watermelon juice to taste.

6 Watermelon and Mason Jars

Pour into the watermelon jars, and top with ice. Serve with a skewered watermelon ball and lime slice. Enjoy!
