Learn to make these fun DIY tumblers!

We are in the dog days of summer and one of my favorite things to do this time of year is to sit on our deck and sip a cold frosty glass of lemonade.  I’ve been busy making lemonade recipes this summer and decided that I needed some fun glasses to go with this tasty beverage. Because every drink looks better if it’s in a cute glass. So in order to stick with the summery lemonade theme, I created these fun DIY tumblers using a citrus cut file.

    What I love about these citrus drink glasses is that in addition to being bright and fun, they are also unbreakable (which is key in my house). These are the perfect glasses to use for an outdoor party. You don’t have to worry about them being shattered if someone accidentally drops them on a deck or patio.

    What type of vinyl should I use?
    I recommend a permanent vinyl such as Expressions Vinyl Oracal 651. This vinyl is waterproof and suitable for outdoor use.
    Can vinyl go through the dishwasher?
    I recommend hand washing your DIY tumblers.
