Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs! I am so excited to share today’s craft with you. Do you remember last year when I told you I was chosen to be a 12 months of Martha blogger? You can check out all of my posts here. GUESS WHAT! I was chosen again to be a 12 months of Martha blogger!
Yippe Ki Yay! I wanted to make something that you could drink out of or put on your desk! These Glittered Mugs will totally make your heart melt and it’s the perfect gift to give someone. Let’s get started!
Glitter tray and rack | Patterning tape | Heart Glitter | Mugs | Brush | Decoupage
If you have not seen this amazing glitter then you are about to flip out. These are so stinking cute right. It’s baby heart that shine like stars in the sky. I chose these two colors because I thought they went nicely together. The first thing you will do is put tape around the mug. I wanted to add glitter on the bottom half so I simply put tape in the middle of the mug.
In today’s project we will be using a gloss decoupage. I love this product because when it dries, it dries clear and so beautiful. I am loving this new glitter rack and tray. It is great way to trap the glitter and when you are done you can pour it back into the glitter tube. The great thing is on the corner of the tray there is a tray that has a little hole on it making it easy to remove the glitter without a huge mess.
You will lay your mug on top of the tray and coat a section with decoupage then immediately sprinkle the heart glitter all over it.
We will also embellish our mugs with miniature love notebooks. I am in LOVE with these. You can really write in them!
If you want to make the glitter look thick then you will add a coat over the mug, let it dry completely. Apply another coat of decoupage then put a layer of glitter again. I added some dirt in the mugs and added a few plants in them. These would look great on a desk or a nice gift.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! It’s perfect for Valentines day, right!
