Simple 4th of July Party Cups

Hey sweet friends!
Here's a quick and easy DIY for the 4th or any other party.
I am all for some pretty mason jars or glass bottles with pretty striped straws.  But if you have a big family reunion or a large party you are going to need something more practical.
Why not make custom cups with some fabric or paper?
 Take some clear plastic cups and cut out fabric or paper circles and place your glue "pretty side up" with a bit of mod podge (it dries clear). Fast, easy, colorful!
Mine are both fabric and paper.  I just traced the bottom of the cup but if you are using paper, you can use a circle punch too.
So easy and makes for a little custom flair to your party!


  1. Such a cute idea Jessica! You are so creative! Wishing you a wonderful week! Angie xo

  2. Super cute idea. I am now painting my napkins. I saw your prior post and fell in love with the idea. I have painted 4 so far, but I still have 2 to go, unfortunately I have run out of paint. So in the morning I am off to Joanns to buy some more paint and finish the 2 I still need. I am so excited and thankful for you sharing your idea. Super cute. I loved your wreath and was really hoping I would win it to be able to hang it on my front door. But I did not. BOO HOO. Thanks for the inspirations and sharing your ideas. I will be posting the finished product once I am done.

  10. I stumbled onto your blog from Free Pretty Things For You. Love your oh-so-affordable never-look-cheap ideas! Perfect for a penny-pinching granny!!! I am going to try to use napkins for the bottom circles so that my cups match my napkins match my theme! Too much matchy-matchy? Hmmmm... Thank you for brightening my day! LOVE!!!
