Simple DIY Confetti Coffee Sleeve

We are always looking for new ways to use our party pretties.  I decided to play around with our confetti and came up with a quick and easy way to add a little fancy to our paper cups.  It is so simple and looks adorable!

Turn paper cup into a fancy party cup!

You will need:

*Clear packaging tape


*Fancy That paper cup-we have a ton of paper cups that work like a charm

*Fancy That confetti- grab a bag or two or three. There are so many pretty colors!

Sprinkle confetti on the surface of your choice (a cutting board works particularly well).  To measure tape, wrap a piece around the cup, adhesive side out, then cut the tape to fit your cup.

NOTE: In order for the tape to fit flat and snug around the cylindrical shape of the cup the tape will overlap and become uneven. This is ok because it allows the confetti to look like it is climbing up the side of the cup.  So wrap up the tape tight even if it is uneven.

Slide tape off cup and roll in sprinkled confetti. Shake off the excess and slide back around cup. Pat confetti tight to the tape so there isn’t any sticky tape left uncovered. Now stand back and admire your handy work.

Voila! You have a simple and darling DIY Confetti Coffee Sleeve.

You don’t have to limit your sleeve to just cups!  Katie filled our clear tubes with cotton candy to make a cute party favor.  The sleeve works on square items too.  You can use the same technique to jazz up our 4×4 colored boxes. The possibilities are endless!
