It's seems that with every party I plan, I get a little obsessed about something. This time... it's nut cups. Yep. Good ol' nut cups that I won't be serving nuts in. So I did my usual research on Etsy and found several options, but with shipping and handling, they're pretty pricey for what they are. So I decided to DIY it.
I found a package of small cups at a discount party store for $4 and I already had the glue and glitter... So I really couldn't justify spending $14 for almost the same thing. Besides, lets face it, 6 year old boys could care less what the cups look like. :)
This was an easy project and gave me a chance to play with glitter. Not often that you get to pull out the glitter for a boy's party, so I took full advantage!
Glitter Cup Instructions
For straight lines, I cut a foam brush to size and dipped it in glue (I used mod podge)
For the dots, I used the back of a pen.
sprinkle on a fine glitter...
and tap off the excess.
When the glue is dry, use a soft paint brush to remove any wayward glitter.
This will be a fun addition to our upcoming Space Party.
Have a good weekend!
