Colorful Tissue Paper


Cutting Mat/Rotary Cutter (optional)

Hot Glue Gun

Clear Cup


Step 1: Cut the tissue paper into 2 inch wide strips. The length will depend on the size of your cups, just make sure the strips are long enough to wrap around them. You’ll need 10 strips per cup, 2 of each color (5 colors total).

Step 2: Hot glue the first strip to the bottom of the cup, so the fringe slightly hangs over the bottom. Hot glue an additional layer around the cup of the same color right on top, so it’s doubled.

Step 3: Continue to hot glue the remainder of strips, doubling up layers, as shown in the photo below. Pour in your favorite festive drink, add a colorful straw and enjoy!
