DIY Painted Drink Dispenser

Last month, right before we left for Haven I received my July box from the 12 Months of Martha campaign. Because we traveled to Haven right after I did not get to film my haul video that I do for each box. So instead I’ll tell you a little bit about it. This month, I received an assortment of adhesive silkscreens, glass paints, and stencils. The Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint program has 120 colors in seven distinctive finishes. The unique adhesive silkscreens are a simple way to transform ordinary glassware and ceramics into decorator accessories. These flexible stencils adhere to curved surfaces, which makes embellishing just about anything simple and easy! 

I used the adhesive silkscreens to transform a drink dispenser and glasses. Now, I’m going to preface right from the start that I did not use the product on glass. I used it on plastic, therefor it’s not dishwasher safe and I do not recommend you scrubbing the paint when cleaning the glasses and dispenser. The paint may come off. So you need to be aware of this right from the start! I also found my BPA-free beverage dispenser at my local Wal-Mart on clearance for just $5 and I got each of the ombre plastic cups for .90 each! Since the product was free my project cost just under $10! Perfect for hosting a picnic or barbecue or maybe even giving this to a friend for a housewarming gift!

Supplies:

  1. Clean drink dispenser surface, then place adhesive silkscreen where desired.
  2. Using the glass paint squeegee place a little bit of paint on the tip and carefully spread in one direction. To get a two-toned effect place a second color of paint on the tip of the paint squeegee and spread to the rest of the silkscreen that does not have any paint.
  3. Carefully remove the silkscreen from the dispenser. Clean up edges if needed with a damp paper towel.

Let your drink dispenser and cups dry over night and then they are ready to be used!

I love how everything turned out! Especially the cups!!!
