Ok, so full disclosure. I love leopard print!!! I first started making glitter glasses when they seemed to be all the rage about 5 years ago. Now I want to add a couple of layers to this with an ombre effect and a fabulous animal print. It’s a very easy craft using just a few key things. The actual steps themselves don’t take long at all but you will need to allow a few hours drying time between each one.
What you’ll need
- A glass or cup
- Mod podge (water based sealer, glue and finish)
- Paint brush or paint sponge
- Glitter (2 colours if doing ombre effect)
- Fine point sharpie (marker pen)
Cover the top half of the glass in mod podge, leaving a half centimeter gap at the top . After all is covered in glue, coat in glitter (be generous!). Allow at least 2 hours to dry.
Repeat this step to achieve a brighter colour. I used white glitter first, then silver as the mix really makes the colour pop. Allow to dry.
Cover the bottom half of the glass in mod podge then drag the glue up to approximately 2/3 of the glass in a random stripe pattern.
Cover with contrasting glitter (I used gold).
Repeat this step twice and allow to dry.
Once completely dry, cover the whole glass in mod podge and allow to dry for 3-4 hours.
Using a sharpie marker pen, draw your pattern or print all over the glass.
Wait 30 minutes then coat in another layer of mod podge.
Allow to dry for 3-4 hours. Your glass is now complete and ready to use!
