I am all about celebrating the little holidays around here. I mean, I don't go all crazy and decorate every room in math symbols and nerd glasses for Pi Day, but I will throw together a couple crafts in the name of DIY. Cinco de Mayo seems like an important enough holiday to commemorate. It feels like a holiday that brings us together. In the spirit of celebrating Mexican heritage in America we come together for tacos and drinks (like sprite and lemonade, of course), which seems like an important thing to do. While pulling out the glue gun for Groundhog Day is necessary, I have yet to perfect the art of freezing time and therefor have to limit some of my crafting to the simple and super quick. So here is my little Cinco de Mayo 10 minute craft. It literally takes 10 to 30 minutes so you will have it done in plenty of time to enjoy
- Light strand
- Glitter (of course...I just can't call a craft done until I add excessive amounts of glitter)
1| Paint those cups! You can pick any variety of colors you want and paint as many cups as you want (so long as there are enough lights on you strand for all of them). Easy peasy.
2| Dip the top rim of you painted cups in white craft glue. Make sure the whole rim is covered in glue in insure complete glitter coverage (critical to the success of your craft).
3| Dip the cup in glitter, hey! Dip the cup in glitter, hey! Dip the cup in glitter, hey! (must sing those words like you are doing a conga line-this is a party after all)
4| Cut a hole in the bottom of your cup and stick it on a light strand. Then enjoy!
And I paticularly loved they way they lit up the night :)
