ombré glitter acrylic tumbler

Need a little extra glam in your life? Need it quick? We’ve got just the thing – this pretty, glittery tumbler will take only a few minutes to make. Now you’re ready to spread some cheer, so cheers!
Step 1
Project Note: For a video that shows you how to make this project, click here

Let’s do some glitter prep! We’re going to mix our two glitters together to make a midrange color. This will help create the ombré effect on your tumbler. So, go ahead and pour about two tablespoons of the Cameo Pink glitter and the same amount of the Garnet glitter into a disposable cup. Mix them together very well. 
 
TIP: We’ll call this color “mid-pink” below.
Step 2
Use your paintbrush to brush Mod Podge® onto your acrylic tumbler, all around the bottom third of the cup. It dries pretty quickly, so don’t take any breaks during this part! (No worries, though. If the Mod Podge® does dry too fast, you can just brush on some more.) 
Step 3
Sprinkle Garnet glitter (the darkest color) over the bottom third of the Mod Podge®, mid-pink over the middle third, and Camo Pink (the lightest color) over the top third. Let the tumbler dry and check to make sure the entire bottom area is covered with glitter. If you need to fill in any spots, just dab on a little more Mod Podge® and sprinkle some more glitter. Once your tumbler’s completely dry, it’s time for drinks! 
 
TIP: You can help your tumbler stay glittery longer by brushing on one more coat of Mod Podge® to seal it. If you do, let this coat dry, too!
