Hi Friends! I know I have been showing you a lot of ways to decorate stainless steel Yetis or Ozarks, but today I’m going to show you how to make your own personalized tumbler cups. It is a very similar method but these tumblers are so much cheaper and great for little kids. I used two different methods on the front and back side to show you some options! Plus I wanted to make a cute unicorn cup for own of my favorite little girls!

- Tumbler with straw – these are ones I use
- Mod Podge
- White Spray Paint – Rustoleum Gloss Enamel
- Extra Fine Glitter
- Epoxy Resin
- Double Sided Adhesive Sheets
- electrical tape or painters’ tape
- Cricut – This is an amazing machine! You can check out my ultimate resource for cricut ideas by clicking here!
To start, you’ll want to wash your tumbler and apply electrical tape or painters’ tape to the top (and bottom if you’d like). If you’d like to check out a video on how I apply electrical tape click here.
Place the tumbler upside down outside and walk around it while spray painting it. It might take spraying around it 5-8 times to get it fully coated. If you’d like to check out a video of how I spray a tumbler click here.

Peel your tape off and let it dry. Once it’s dry, you’re going to apply your first layer of epoxy. This is where you are going to add the extra sparkle in. I mixed jumbo glitter with large purple and added some of the mixture to the epoxy itself. (To watch a video tutorial on how to apply the epoxy to a tumbler click here).
After the first layer of epoxy has fully dried, make sure to clean your tumbler with alcohol before applying decals. For the front side, I cut out an SVG file I found online with glitter vinyl and applied with transfer tape. For a tutorial on applying vinyl to a tumbler click here.
On the other side, I found a free unicorn online and cut it out with my Cricut on double-sided adhesive sheets, added glitter, and then applied it to the glitter tumbler. Here is a video on how I upload a file I find and then cut it out with my Cricut.

To apply the glitter image to tumbler, the hinge method works great! You can watch a quick video on how I do it here.
Once that’s applied along with all of your vinyl, add your second coat of epoxy and you’re done!
I love how vibrant and fun these personalized tumbler cups came out! I think I might have to make myself a unicorn cup! If you’d like to get more ideas on how to personalize Yetis and/or tumblers click here!
