There are lots of everyday occasions to give someone a little surprise that doesn’t break the bank. Use this idea to take someone’s favorite beverage and make it extra special! For mom or dad? A teacher? A BFF? Everyone has a treat beverage of choice. I think this would be such a fun gift to find in the spot where the less-glitzy beverages usually hang out!

These adhesive craft gems come on sheets ready to peel and stick, in a variety of colors and sizes.

    Couldn’t you use hot glue and just make it look like drops of condensation? It’d be cheaper. Hot glue and glitter, or foil.

      In my experience hot glue is best used where it doesn’t show, like for sticking things together. It likes to make points and leave strings that aren’t smooth. But hey, there are probably a million variations on this look. Try whatever you like and just let this be a point of inspiration!
