Glitter Travel Mug DIY

#DIY glitter mug tutorial #crafts

Because when doesn’t glitter make you feel happy? Okay, let’s rule out the times when it’s appropriate to refer to glitter as “the herpes of arts and crafts” when it’s absolutely everywhere after a project. That’s a bit annoying, but hey- the payoff! Glitter makes everything look happier and prettier. Today I have glitter travel mug DIY- and I am no DIY master so this is SUPER easy, I promise!

      Aww no! You could probably just buy it online, mine was $20 but there is a cheaper version that is plastic inside instead of stainless steel.

      That’s the beauty of it, the plastic shell is removable so you can JUST wash the inside, mug part. That way the glitter gets affected in no way!

    These are so fun! I’ve only seen the tumbler version, so you hit a home run with this! It’s one of those “how come I didn’t think of that?” things! So adorable and this would make the PERFECT gift!

      I know right! I’m hoping it goes craycray on Pinterest haha. I’d personally love this as a gift :)

      Hahah at first I was intending to use some sort of white glue but I could only find spray adhesive at my work so I just went with it. Turns out it works really well :) And I’m a kayak instructor at a kid’s outdoor camp so I’m on the ocean! It’s gorgeous, but if I did this craft at home it’d be in my lame side yard too hahaha

      Just straight from a Starbucks! You can get them at like, any Starbucks here and probably on their website as well. They’re called “Create-Your-Own” or something like that :) There’s a stainless steel one which cost me like $20 and I think there was a cheaper option that was a plastic inside for like $12 or $14, but I think the steel keeps your drinks way hotter!

    • Chelsea says

      Oh girl I am not crafty either, whatsoever. I have good intentions- I pin tons of stuff… but it’s a matter of whether I actually do it or not haha

    • Chelsea says

      You totally could! Any hot drink is just fine ;) And if you’re not into hot drinks, you can do this same thing with a tumbler instead!

    • Chelsea says

      It’s so so so so easy I can’t even begin to explain. If I can do it, ANYONE can do it! I’m useless at crafts, ahha!

    • Chelsea says

      I imagine that you could for sure. I like the chunkier look of actual glitter in it though, but I’m pretty sure you could do either way depending on what you like! That stuff would be dangerous with me… I’d be glittering everything haha.

    who cares if they think you are paranoid with the cardboard. You just double insulated the mug…and THAT is a great idea!!!

    Hi! I’m making this for my friend and she’s not the type that would like glitter. Do you think there’s something else I could do? Like a pattern, or something different?

    • Chelsea says

      Totally! You could use scrapbook paper and mod podge it in there, get a piece of card-like paper and draw/write on it and use that as your little cover… you could mod podge a cute print! Ideas are endless :)

    My sister in law needs one of these. She has an almost unhealthy relationship with Starbucks.

    PS: I”m a green blogger and know lots of the itty bitty science and details about things like stuff transferring into your food through the material of your container. Your mug has a stainless steel liner which is one of the safest things you can make a travel mug from so you don’t have to worry about anything transferring into your coffee :)
