Glitter Mug DIY

DIY, Uncategorized December 31, 2015


What you’ll need: 

2 small brushes, modpodge, exacto knife, glitter, a printer, something to cut on top of (I used a magazine), and mugs. 


Find a font you love and type the letters or words you want one your mug. Print them out and use your handy exacto knife to cut out the letter(s). 

Pull the letters out. Here’s where you need to make a decision. If you want just a letter or phrase on your mug use the large piece of paper with the letter cut out.  But if you want glitter everywhere with the letter or phrase blank use the part you removed from the larger paper.  


I chose to make mugs with glitter letters so I used the larger piece of paper. Some letters are more difficult than others. This A for example. 

Tape everything down. 


And start modpodging. Use your small brush to apply the modpodge. I use a dabbing method. 
Add your glitter. Then remove the paper stencil. I took it off before it was totally dry. When I waited for it to dry the stencils tore and it was a mess. 

Brush off excess glitter with a dry brush. I had to do a few layers of glitter so don’t be scared to add more modpodge and glitter.  


Then use your exacto knife to clean up the edges. 

Then use your small brush to add at least three layers of modpodge. Allow each layer to dry before adding the next layer. If you let thee mugs sit for 19 days they are suppose to be dishwasher safe.   Who knew 👆🏾. 

And here ya go!!!
