Fancy Peacock Cups

One of the easiest projects from my daughter’s Peacock Princess Party turned out to be one of my favorite things.  Often times the smallest details can make a big impact and I thought these cups did just that.  Here is how I transformed some boring cups into beautiful drinking vessels, perfect for serving Posh Peacock Punch!

I gathered a few supplies: white cups w/ cardboard sleeves, ribbon, jeweled embellishments, peacock feathers, and my hot glue gun.

I took my husband lunch one afternoon and noticed he had a ton of those white cups with the cardboard sleeves and I pleaded with him to bring home a few for me to use.  He couldn’t understand why I wanted his company logo cups, but I had a vision!  I gently took the card board sleeve apart and turned it inside out so the corrugated side was showing.  I wrapped it around the cup and hot glued them in place.

Then I tied the ribbon around the cup and secured in place with a small dab of hot glue.  I found jeweled brads in the scrapbook section at Hobby Lobby and bent the backs off so they would lay flat.  I hot glued the jewel to the center of the ribbon.

Finally, I slipped a small peacock feather behind the ribbon to tie in with our Peacock party theme.

I though they turned out beautifully, and for only $4 I made 20 beautiful cups that went from ordinary to extraordinary.
