Hi guys! It's Pei here. It's always been a huge goal of mine to spend more time sharing some fun D.I.Y.s with The Paper + Craft Pantry Community! So moving forward, you'll be hearing from me more :) When I'm not here in the studio or working on P+CP things, I'm a huge D.I.Y./crafter and I can't wait to share more little projects with all of you!
To say it's been a little bit crazy in the studio would be an understatement — we hosted 15 workshops + events in the month of January! Who would've thought we would grow our community in just over a year to a point where we get to constantly fill out studio with incredible people?
I've been particularly excited about sharing this D.I.Y. because it also aligns with another one of my goals this year, which is to hydrate more. I've been known to go all day in the studio without a single drop of H2O and I know... shame on me. I'd only realize how dehydrated I was when I was driving home at the end of the day. And so far, this glitter water tumbler makes it easy and fun to stay hydrated!
PROJECT CRAFT TIME: 15 MINUTES
DRY TIME: OVERNIGHT
- Clear plastic photo tumbler
- Clear Glue
First, and perhaps the MOST fun part of this project, mix together your glitter and confetti! I chose to mix different shapes, sizes and textures! Be sure to use plastic confetti, as the tissue paper version will dissolve in the water and glycerin mixture.
Unscrew the bottom of your tumbler and fill about 2/3 of the way with your glitter and confetti mixture. *Pro-tip: I used a little bamboo skewer to shimmy the bigger pieces of confetti down the narrow wall of the tumbler!
Then, mix in a tablespoon of glycerin with 1 1/2 cups of water (it's okay if this ends up being more water than you need to fill your tumbler)
The very last step is to seal the base lid. Before screwing the lid on, apply a clear drying glue (or use a hot glue gun) around the edge of the lid. Twist to close and let dry overnight with the bottom lid facing up.
