I don’t know about you guys but I need at least 2 cups of coffee in the morning to actually move my butt. Like big cups. Like biggest setting on the Keurig big. Before that I look and feel like something that just stepped out of the Walking Dead… and not one of the good guys. As a result I am always looking for a fun large coffee mug to bring at least a little morning happiness to my otherwise horror show of a morning. Especially those early wakeup calls! 5 am is not my friend!!! Okay, so this project is basically an attempt to make my mornings less of a scary TV show and more of a… well… a “good” morning. See how to use tissue paper to transform plain large coffee mugs with a confetti design – a simple DIY!

To create your confetti mug, start by cleaning your large coffee mug with rubbing alcohol. Once it’s dry, add a thin layer of dishwasher safe mod podge to a small area of the mug.

Next, layer the confetti on to the mod podge. You can overlap to create really cool effects. Sometimes the confetti can stick together so be sure to separate as much as possible or else you’re going to get a really thick stack and it won’t cover correctly.

Continue adding modpodge and confetti to the large coffee mug in small sections until you’re happy with the look of the mug. Allow to dry.

Once the confetti and mod podge are dry you’re going to add a thin layer of mod podge to the entire cup. You may need to dab it in a few sections to keep the confetti from coming up if it’s not completely secure. Apply at least 2 layers (3 is best), allowing the cup to dry in between.

    I like this mug. Looks like it could be done for special color themes, i.e. in greens for St. Patty’s Day or reds and pinks for Valentine’s Day.
