Bethany began by spray-painting the fixture gold for a luxe look. While the small plastic dessert cups she found on Amazon were the perfect size for the product, the recycle symbols on the bottom of the containers were less so. To hide this small detail, Bethany used her Silhouette machine to cut out gold circles from vinyl, and attached them to the base of the cups. After that, she simply hot-glued each cup to a rod of the light fixture and displayed her finished product proudly.
