These Pinspired cups were so fun and easy (albeit a bit messy thanks to all the glitter)! Even my 4 year old helped make them. They make a great homemade gift too (I’m thinking my kids teachers would love these)! Just pop a Starbucks gift card inside. As far as I can tell, the original idea for these is by Crafting College and found this post but I actually first saw it via Pinterest which linked to this post.
Both of these DIY bloggers used spray adhesive to make theirs and I love, love, love the idea…I mean really. Starbucks and glitter? Yes, please. But…I hate spray adhesive. Like really, really hate it. Maybe it’s just me but I make a royal mess with it and I can’t get it off my hands for days! So, I opted to try out good old classic Mod Podge instead and it worked great.
What You’ll Need:
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Fine Glitter (I tried coarse too but fine looks best!)
- Double walled cold cups that come apart (like this Starbucks one)
Take out the inner cups because those are the part you want to Mod Podge. I found the awesome glitter pack below at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago for about $12 and I’ve been dying to glitterize something ever since. Is ” glitterize” a word? It should be.
I really loved the look of the all Gold one that Take It On Tuesday did so I made that one for my Mom for her birthday which we celebrated this past weekend. And then I did a rainbow one and a red, green, and silver Christmasy one.
For the ones that are multi-colored, I only applied one section of Mod Podge at a time and glitterized it with one color. Be generous with the glitter. It looks best with good coverage. I didn’t wait for one section to dry before applying another strip of Mod Podge and using the next glitter color. I let them dry overnight and then applied another coat of Mod Podge over the glitter to help keep it in place.
Once fully dry, re-assemble and enjoy your new fancy cup or give it away as a fun personalized gift.
