Curious about how to make those sparkly glittery tumblers?  Check this guide out!


It’s time to sparkle and shine! Add a little glam to your life by learning how to make your own glitter tumblers. They’re beautiful, stainless steel beverage holders that you can personalize, sell as a side-hustle, or give as fabulous customized gifts to friends and family. 

Before you get started, it’s important to know the basics - like how long they take to make, what materials you’ll need, and a quick list of Do’s and Don’ts. We’ve got all of that - and more - outlined below. Or, if you’re all set and ready to dive in, you can read our step-by-step guide on how to make glitter tumblers in our Shop by Craft section



Creating a glitter tumbler is easy to do, but it’s not necessarily a quick process. It takes about 2 to 5 hours of crafting work and about 24 hours of waiting time for the resin to fully cure if you’re using MakerFlo’s FloPoxy Fast Set. (Curing is the chemical reaction that happens when epoxy resin mixes with hardener, and the ingredients turn from a liquid into a solid. Always refer to the directions on the back of the products you’re using - FloPoxy, spray paint, etc. - to make sure that you’re allowing for proper drying and curing time!) 


As many glitter tumbler crafters will tell you, it takes practice to learn all the techniques for prepping, sanding, curing, even exploring different color combos to become a pro at glitter tumbler making.  To help keep your costs down as you're learning your craft, we offer lower-priced tumbler “uh-ohs,” destash and - made especially for practice - our 16 oz. Pencil Tumbler (Single Wall Cup) at $3.50 each. 


While your cup is drying, you’ll need a way to lift up your tumblers AND keep them turning so that they don’t drip. A cup turner is a tumbler-making essential, because it makes sure that everything is evenly spread and there are no rigid lines or big fat drips. You can purchase one online, or even look up “how to make a DIY cup turner” on YouTube.
