Wedding Wednesday: A Glittery DIY

Welcome back to yet another Wedding Wednesday!
It was never my intention to write so many Wedding Wednesday posts...I thought I'd have very little to say about my wedding plans. Silly me, what was I thinking?!? Check out my previous WW posts here, here, and here.

Today I have a quick and simple (but really glittery and fun) DIY. I glitterfied these cups for a girls' dinner I'm having this weekend to celebrate our engagement and I cannot wait to pour some bubbly in them in a few days!! 
Also, glitterfied is a real word.


What you'll need:


-paint brush
-mod podge
-2 different colors of glitter (aka the stars of the show)
-plastic wine cups (I got 6 for $1 at the Dollar Store)

Step 1:
Figure out how much of your cup you'll want covered in glitter. I used my index finger to measure that out (real scientific, I know). Once you've decided on your measurements, coat the bottom of the cup with a layer of mod podge. This stuff is pretty thick, so a little goes a long way.

Step 2:

With a spoon, sprinkle a healthy amount of glitter all around your cup, making sure to cover all the white of the mod podge. Once you're done, give it a good shake to get rid of any excess glitter. 

Step 3:

Coat the base of the cup with a layer of mod podge and sprinkle your second color on top. Give it a good shake to get rid of excess glitter. 

Step 5:

Set aside to dry, and repeat steps with the rest of the cups. Once they dry, add a sealing coat of a clear mod podge. This is extremely important, unless you want your guests hands to look like this...



Step 6:

Add a fun straw or cute cocktail stirrer and enjoy some champagne after all your hard work ;)

This would also look great on a bottle of wine (or any type of alcohol!) and would be perfect for a bachelorette party as well!

What have you DIY'd for your wedding/surrounding festivities so far?
