New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and if you’re hosting, the lull after Christmas is the perfect time to start crafting your decor and party accessories! Metal-dipped glasses make the perfect partyware, so why not jazz up those plain plastic party cups with a spray of paint!
Christmas is over, and we’ve now entered into that period where eating seems to be the main form of exercise and no-one seems to know what day or date it is. There’s not long until the New Year now though, and with it New Years Eve, and so it’s the perfect time to do a bit of crafting in preparation. I’m a big fan of metal-dipped glasses, but sadly don’t own any, and so last year when i was thinking about jazzing up my partyware, I knew that i wanted to re-create this look. This DIY really is ridiculously easy, and once again i feel a little bit cheeky posting a tutorial for it. To make myself feel better, and because the results really are so satisfying, I’ve stuck it under my ‘5 Minute DIY’ category. As i said, I made these for last years New Year’s Eve celebrations (along with this origami star backdrop), and not only was I really pleased with them, but I received several compliments about them from my guests. Keep reading to find out what I used and how I made it...
Plastic Party Cups
First of all, put the bases onto the neck of your cups on and grab some think paper. Wrap the paper around the main body of the cup, leaving the bottom quarter of the cup exposed, and secure with masking table.
Next, grab your metallic spray paint and spray the exposed cup. Hold the cup at the top, and be sure to rotate it as you spray to get an even finish. Apply a second layer, leave to dry, and then peel off the paper.
