DIY Party Decorations : Confetti Cups

I love fun DIY party decorations and I love them even more when they take minutes and look super cute.  These Confetti Cups check both of those boxes.  These cute DIY party decorations are perfect for every party table…weddings, birthdays,a New Year’s Eve party…every occasion.

You can simply change the type of confetti or the color of confetti you use to make these fit any theme or color scheme.  I used this fun metallic-type confetti for these bottles for our upcoming New Year’s Eve party, but let your imagination run wild and come up with your own fun twist on these adorable drink bottles.  They look festive on every party table.

You don’t have to have these special bottles, you can totally do this with plastic cups as well, but I LOVE them.  I order them by the hundreds and always have them on hand for every party.  They look cute, can be transformed into just about anything, and are both re-useable, or disposable if you choose.  I usually dispose of them because I’m lazy. 😉  They are heavy duty plastic, but if you are going to re-use them you should plan on hand washing them because they may scratch and fog up in a dishwasher.  Also, I don’t know if they are made to handle the heat of a dishwasher.

To make these bottles simply cover the lower third of the bottle with a thick tacky glue.  I always use my finger to apply it because it is the easiest to get an even coat with and get it right where I want it.  I always use this glue.

I just dump a pile of my confetti on the table and roll the bottle around in it making sure to completely cover the glue in confetti.  There will be some pieces that are hanging all over, but that is part of the look…we don’t want perfection here…we want a messy “confetti just got thrown all over me” look. 😉

Once the bottle or cups are covered in confetti just set them aside to dry.  These are obviously not re-useable, but they sure are fun! 😉 Pair them with a cute striped straw and your favorite drink and you’re ready to party!
