Arts n Crafts

I made this one for Adrian…

Adrian made this one for me…

So Adrian and I completed one of the easiest DIY projects, ever, last night. All you need are sharpies (or these Porcelaine 150 markers for a more “for sure” stick) and a set of plain mugs. Oh, and an oven too. Set it to 350 Degrees, create your masterpiece, pop ’em in the oven for about 30-35 minutes, let them cool and….VIOLA! Your own DIY custom mugs. Pretty cool huh? I must say, I love the ones we did. It was a great bonding time and such a cute, thoughtful gift.

They’re a great Christmas gift idea too!

(tools used: Porcelaine 150 Markers & Coffee Mugs via Target.)

Anybody notice the new header?

    So, I had seen this previously on Pinterest and ofcourse, I’m one of those “Pin now, do much much later!” girls, LOL! So, when I swa your post, you inspired me and I did 10 (yes, TEN) DIY mugs for my family! It was time consuming for me since I did so many but they come out amazing and everyone loved them! Couldn’t get enough of the two you and Adrian did, amazing!! Thanks for the extra push! =*
