Innovative Ways to Use 1000 Plastic Cups

Innovative Ways to Use 1000 Plastic Cups

Plastic cups are a common sight around any office. This sturdy material makes them perfect for use with a hot or cold water dispenser. If you have bought a carton of 1000 plastic cups, you are already likely to be aware that they can help to reduce the spread of germs, particularly in the cold and flu season. However, what you may not know is how useful they can be if you have an impromptu office party. Here are just some of the innovative ways to make great use of plastic cups.

Cupcake Holders:

Whether you are throwing a birthday party or want to get crafty with team gifts, cupcakes can make an excellent option. However, the difficulty with cupcakes is usually how to present them. While they may already be in a paper case, there is a risk of the cake going stale or being at risk of insects unless they are sealed in an airtight container.

Unfortunately, using an airtight tin means that you can’t have an attractive cake display, but the solution could lie with your package of 1000 plastic cups. If you have bought plastic cups for sale in bulk, you will have plenty of cups around, and all you need to do is put a cake in the bottom of the cup and use wrap to create a neat bow, sealing in the cake. This idea is not only practical but looks cute.

Mini Lampshades:

If you are feeling crafty, you can also use your plastic cups to make nifty mini lampshades. These can be ideal for parties or if you want to light an outdoor area. All you need is a string of LED lights, preferably a battery powered set. Simply use a sharp tool to cut a small hole in the base of each cup and thread the light bulb through. This will protect the bulb from the elements, and if you use coloured cups, you can cast a diffused light.

Ice Shot Glasses:

Another crafty idea for your carton of 1000 plastic cups is to make ice glasses. These look really cool, and you can get creative on whether you add items such as flowers or fresh herbs to the ice to make them look even more attractive. You will need standard plastic cups and some that are slightly smaller. Fill the larger cup with water until it is approximately ⅔ full. Put the smaller cup inside and tape or weight it down. Carefully put it in your freezer and leave for at least eight hours. Once it has frozen, you can slide the cups apart, and you will be left with a funky ice glass, which is perfect for coloured punch.

Best water, service and price! Dealt with Hayley through email who was efficient and friendly and Mary over the phone more recently to add more bottles to be delivered and she was easy to understand and prompt ! Love having good cold water in Perths summer heat and it’s made better when it’s so easy to access with their delivery service and the great customer service they provide.

When your daughter mentions that the water at Mummy's house is better than at Daddy's house you know your onto something good. If a 5yo can taste the difference in the water quality what's that say about what is coming out of our taps. Thanks for making the small changes I've made in our health easy. Delivery guy is always polite and happy to carry the bottles to where I store them. Staff, on the few times I've had to visit the Wangara office, are always polite. Really if you want to do something good for your family then Aussie Natural Spring Water is a no brainer. You won't regret the change.
