Last year one of my close friends and I, Hailey, had the best intentions of creating a DIY project youtube channel. Well needless to say, we only made one video. HA! I am planning on doing many more youtube videos featuring both DIY projects, and interior design tips and tricks. But I thought I would just put up my old video though so you can try this project for yourself. It was really easy and cheap! I think these cups are so cute and they make GREAT gifts! I gave them to a bunch of friends for Christmas and they loved them. Because it was Christmas we made them in such colors. I would love to make a bright purple, or pink one! Or even black glitter!!
Starbucks Cold Cup with UNSCREWABLE LAYERS (This is important because you need to be able to separate the inside layer from the outer shell.)
Large Container of Glitter
In the first part of the video we were just listing the supplies that were needed, which I listed above. The newspaper is just to provide a clean work surface to spray the adhesive over without making a mess. Because trust me, it will.
The second part of the video we discuss the steps.
1.) Spray adhesive evenly over the inner layer
2.) Coat with glitter by rolling the sprayed cup through it
3.) Be sure to cover any bald spots
4.) Carefully screw the parts back together
HINT: Be careful not to get glitter around the ridges of the cup around the rim. It will show a bit and makes it a little harder to screw the cups back together.
If anyone makes one be sure and post your pictures of your projects!
