Whether you are a mother, teenager, college student, or someone who just needs a cup, tumblers are always a great choice. Tumblers are spill proof, can hold hot and cold liquids, and extremely easy to travel with. If I told you could easily make your own DIY Glittered Tumbler, would you make it for yourself or as a gift? It would be a great teacher appreciation gift your child could help you make too! Here is a tutorial for how to make glitter tumblers. They are such a cute and useful diy gift.
DIY Glitter Tumbler Tutorial
I bought my tumbler from Michael’s Craft store for only $2.99 and a whole assortment of glitter. (I love glitter so much that I basically bleed glitter! There are always more glitter crafts to do.) I decided to make my aunt this DIY glitter tumbler because she is always on the go.
DIY Glitter Tumbler Materials:
- Travel Tumbler from Michael’s (Must have a removable tumbler)
- Elmer’s Spray Adhesive Glue (I bought mine from Michael’s as well)
- Any color glitter you want (I bought a whole variety pack)
How To Make Glitter Tumblers:
Set a bag where you are going to work and a couple sheets of paper to use to catch the glitter.
Take the tumbler from the travel mug and put the cup aside.
You either want to be outside (that’s what I did) or a well ventilated area to spray the adhesive glue.
Spray the tumbler with the adhesive glue in sections at a time (it dries in 15 seconds) and pour the glitter color of your choice on the section you sprayed.
Continue until all the area is covered with glitter.
Repeat Steps 4 and 5 if you are adding more glitter. (I did mine in sections to use two colors on my cup for my aunt)
I would wait an hour for the entire cup to be dry and set. However, the glue and glitter will be dry in a matter of seconds.
When you’re done, put the tumbler inside the travel mug and enjoy your DIY glitter tumbler!
Now you know how to make Glitter Tumblers! Instead of going to the store to buy a cute tumbler for yourself or a gift, do you think you’ll make your own DIY Glitter Tumbler? It will save you a bunch and you can use your favorite colors of glitter! I’d love to see how your glitter tumbler turns out. Tag us @familyfocusblog.
