As inspired by my previous post, follow the directions below for creating and applying decal graphics!
Materials: glasses/cups, vinyl decal, transfer tape, scissors/Xacto knife, bonus points if you have a machine cutter like Silhouette.
Start by measuring the diameter of your glasses, mine were around 8.5″
I used my fancy Silhouette program and Illustrator to create triangle cutouts, but designs can be created with an Xacto knife or even scissors. Many craft stores carry pre-cut vinyl lettering and/or shapes that can be applied to many surfaces.
Take out extra material to reveal your design, apply transfer tape.
Peel transfer tape slowly with your design *tip* cut it in a few places to work with a smaller surface and apply one by one. When the tape sticks to your glass it might wrinkle and leave the design wrinkly (as seen on my final piece)
Ta-da you’re done!
This was super fun to create, I thought about doing all sorts of designs with words and icons – maybe make party favors or personalized gifts? I think this would be a nice present for mother’s day coming up! It might not be entirely washing safe so be careful if you attempt this project.
I hope you’ve enjoyed! :)
