Saw it. Pinned it. Did it._Link Up!

I am linking up with the lovely ladies over at Keep Calm and Carry On and Beautiful Mess for
Saw it. Pinned it. Did it!

I drink water all day, and a lot of it.  So when Starbucks offered their super size cup as a reusable option, i hopped on board.  Now everyone has them, and I wanted mine to stand out... enter "Glitter Cup"!

 I also saw this little DIY over at Basically Bre!  Hers looked so great I couldn't wait to make my own!
I picked up the supplies at JoAnn's Fabrics (an arts and crafts/fabric shop around here).
You will need:
Spray Glue {Elmer's Craft Bond, Multi Spray Adhesive was the brand I used}
Glitter {I used 3, 0.6 oz tubes}
masking tape
plastic wrap
Something to cover the workspace {I covered the floor with old newspaper}
the spray glue and glitter!
I first separate the cup and covered the top part with the plastic wrap and tape {this is to keep the glitter out and to cover the top from getting glue on it.  One mistake I made was not properly covering the groves where the cup goes back together and had to wipe the glue off.}
Next you'll spray the outside of the cup while sprinkling the glitter overtop {make sure that nothing is in close vicinity to you spraying, I made the mistake of getting the top part of the cup sprayed too.  I found Goo Be Gone gets the spray right off!}
After you have it covered to your liking, set it down to dry. {it shouldn't take more than an hour to be set!}

Clean up the glitter that has gotten everywhere, screw the cup back together, and you are DONE! Gotta love a DIY project that is done in less than 15 minutes {minus my 2 mistakes!}
End result!  Love the pink!
 Now go out and get awesome compliments on your new and improved "Glitter Cup"!
