Painted Tumblers

Pinterest leads me to be inspired again! I've been on Pinterest for a long time, pinned over 2,600 pins! And, I actually enjoy recreating the items I've pinned! I've also discovered new and wonderful blogs because of it too!
This crafty project was something I pinned over 6 weeks ago. The title of the Pin was Easy Anthropologie Confetti Tumblers

With Christmas approaching, I knew I wanted to try these! I was at Target one day and in their Dollar Section (love!!), they had the tumblers! So I picked up two. And then I was at the Dollar Tree store and BAM! they had tumblers too! 
Next, I needed to figure out the colors I wanted to paint the tumblers. I figured I would gift two sets of tumblers. On my next visit to Michael's I bought a few different colors of the enamel paint. I wanted to do metallic colors and bright colors (I used Marta Stewart Enamel Craft Paints).

This project began when my girlfriends came to visit in November. We started crafting around Midnight ( was that kind of night and we may have had a few HIGHKICKS, too!). We worked on the metallic colors--with silver, gold and bronze. We used Q-tips to apply the paint in a sporadic manner.

It was really that simple. After a week or two, I went back and added more painted confetti. Love how they turned out and I hope the recipients like them too!

So, what do you think? Do you go on Pinterest? Have you ever made anything you've pinned?

Have a great day!


Pin It!


  1. Love! Love! Have you tried washing them yet? Are they dishwasher safe? I so want to make these!


  2. That's so cool! and yes, Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship right now. That time stealing awesome site!

  3. We made a similar project this summer. I totally forgot about posting it. Yours turned out great. Mine were not dishwasher safe. I tried it to check. These are hand wash only, but they turn out sooo cute! Love yours. Thanks for linking up at One Creative Weekend! Enjoy your weekend.
