Foam cups are often a staple item at a party because they are inexpensive and disposable. Despite the benefits, their appearance is quite basic. Since they all look the same, foam cups can easily be mixed-up. To avoid a drink mix-up mishap, decorate the foam cups. By decorating each cup differently, each person will know which is hers. As an added bonus, these decorative cups will add flare to your party decor.

  1. 1

    Set out foam cups on a flat, level surface. Place all of your craft supplies close by so that they are within easy reach while you decorate.

  2. 2

    Decorate the cups by using markers to draw patterns and shapes. Write messages or each partygoers' name on individual cups. Create different images and use different colours on each cup.

  3. 3

    Place stickers and glue pom poms and faux gemstones on the cups. Use the craft materials to give each cup a different look.

  4. 4

    Set the cups aside to dry. Before using them, set them out on a table where they can be easily located. Clean up after the affair is easy--just throw the cups away.
