Meg: DIY Glitter Cup

There are few things in the world prettier than glitter. My coworker came to work one day with one of those Starbucks cups (the double walled kind), and it was a sparkly purple. I was so smitten, I had to try it myself and share it with you all!


What you’ll need:


-A double-walled cup (try the cups that are meant to display photos!)

-Spray adhesive

-Fine glitter.


The coolest thing about this DIY is that you can sparkle just about anything! Decorative jars, vases, you name it.

First you’ll need to remove the part you drink from.  For your safety, please don’t use spray adhesive in the part you drink from 🙂 Spray the area to be glittered, and pour in your glitter! You may need to work quickly so the adhesive doesn’t dry before you add glitter.




Shake out the excess glitter.


I did another layer of adhesive and glitter. This is optional, of course.


Re-assemble your cup, and enjoy it’s sparkly beauty!




 Are you a glitter lover, too?

  1. They sell glitter cardstock. I think a much easier way to do this would be to cut a piece of that and slide it in.

  2. I love it!! I would make mine purple too, like your coworkers 🙂 What a great gift that brings a daily smile.

  3. love the glitter:):):):):):)

  4. So cute!! I’m definitely a glitter lover too 🙂

  5. Yes! One of my coworkers did this with green glitter and I loved it so much!

    Super cute- I like the gold, too!

  6. Meg, I’m loving all your DIY stuff! 🙂 I’m def doing this and I’ve been thinking about your DIY tipped shoes for awhile, perhaps I will get the guts to do it 🙂

    LOVE it! …but how do you wash it?

  8. CUTE. Love the DIYs!

  9. LOVE glitter! You can also take Mod Podge and mix it with glitter and glitter-ize anything to your heart’s content : )

  10. I’M TOTALLY DOING THIS ASAP!!!! I drink out of my Starbucks cup like that every morning. This is going to be great.

  11. So cute! But yeah, how do you wash it?

  12. How do you get the cup back together, glue it?

  13. This is adorable! I need to go to Starbucks to pick up a double-walled tumbler to use 😉

  14. I would LOVE to do this, would make great gifts if I could find a double walled tumbler! All the picture ones I would have to do the glitter paper.. And that just isn’t sparkly enough for us glitter lovers!!

  15. Hey, I have been trying to make one of these but cant get the inside of the cup out! How did you get it out?

  16. This is a neat idea! Why didn’t I think of this?

  17. Danielle says:

    Where did you get your cup??(:

  18. I LOVE this idea! So glittery and Christmassy 🙂 I’ve written a blog post about DIY gifts and I mentioned your post, it’s not live yet but if you want me to edit it let me know x

  19. Love this idea! But I was wondering, would it be possible to add the glitter with some kind of clear liquid for a snow globe effect? Or would that get really gross after awhile?

  20. I love this, I wanna make some!
    I wondered if there’s ways to get multiple glitter colors, but then threw that thought away when I realized I can be super weird and possibly (POSSIBLY) do this with sprinkles.
    I love sprinkles.
    I want a sprinkle cup now 😮

  21. Hi Meg,
    I was just wondering where you got your cup.
    Did you get it out of the starbucks store and how much was it?
    Going shopping on saturday so could get one there

    Thanks for the diy this is great!
