Enjoy your favourite tipple in style!
As a lover of the 1970’s era where having big hair, flares and dancing under a large disco ball was the norm, this DIY project will transport you straight there. In that era everything was colourful, bold and in your face, even the dance floors lit up. The disco ball was a standard fixture at any 70’s club, reflecting sparkling patterns on the club goers below and adding to the atmosphere and style of the era.

To celebrate the 70’s glitz and glamour and raise a glass to being creative, here is my DIY disco ball shot glass – because why not hey! Who wants to just drink from a normal cup? Not me, we are doing in style!

    Now begin to chip away the polystyrene in the circle you have just created using a knife or craft knife. Keep removing the polystyrene deep enough for half of the plastic cup to fit inside the ball.

    Tip – Do this step over a bin or trash bag, as the polystyrene will get everywhere otherwise!
