On there blog they use sonic cups, I love sonic but we don't have any sonics in Florida, so I'm using a Styrofoam cup from Chick-fil-a. You have to use a Styrofoam cup because any other kind will sweat and ruin your hard work. You can used just one color of glitter but I decided to mix it up and use several colors.
Ok, so your gonna need a Styrofoam cup, modge podge, sponge applicators, and some fine glitter. I used the Martha Stewart glitter in Halloween Colors.
First Step apply a thin coat of Modge Podge on your cup, I wanted to do the orange and red on top and black on bottom, but you can do one color all over if you want. I actually should of done the bottom first and the top second, it would of made it easier, but ya live and learn!
Second Step is to apply your glitter, let dry for a few hours, then re-apply modge podge and glitter a second time! Let dry over night then you can spray with a gloss sealer/finisher. Just make sure its a gloss finish.
Now noticed I left the top rim unglittered, this is if you plan on drinking out of it,but for cup I'm not going to worry about it because I'm filling my cup with candy to give as a gift.
The next step is to Decorate! This is the fun part you can let your imagination go wild and don't be afraid to used a glue gun on here either.
I made a tag to put on mine . . . .
and finished off with some Halloween Ribbon and filled it with halloween candy. You can do these cups for birthdays,graduations,Easter . . . I've got so many more ideas on ways to decorate them, can't wait to make some more!
I was playing around and tried to give my picture some spooky effects!
