HO HO HO it’s all about DIY Hand Painted Mugs today! It’s a cold night in Louisiana and I am typing this while watching the Kardashians and eating Taco Bell. I know you are all wishing you were in my shoes, NOT! I have a few things on my mind tonight. For starters I would like to meet the person who invented these new “star beam” lights that place little dots all over your entire house! Let’s face it who has time to put thousands of real lights all over their house? Not me! Although I will admit that all year long I have sugar plum visions of my house decorated like the ones in the mushy Hallmark movies.
I guess I should keep those visions in my head because I can execute them much better there, haha! OH, my good friend Aunt Peaches just did something incredible and I am so jelly but I will start manifesting us doing it together next year, check it out here! You will FLIP OUT!
Also incase you didn’t know I added some charm in my house this year with a RED Christmas Tree. I know…a RED ONE! You won’t believe how gorg it it y’all check it out here and see exactly what I am raving about! Also, is there such thing as TOO many trees in one’s house? I think I might be a little obsessed because I counted the ones in our dining room and I have 5. Yes they vary in size but still, who has that many trees in ONE room? I also have 3 in the kitchen, one in the living room and one in our main bathroom. I am sure you are all shaking your heads huh…
Let’s all make hot cocoa and drink out of cute mugs, especially the one I am showing you how to make today!
We are making some cute painted mugs using minimal products, literally. You all know I work for I Love to Create and all I will say is these markers have to be my favorite thing in the world lately. They are bright and fun so if you think this will be a boring roller coaster ride you are sadly mistaken.
Now rest assured, these markers are made so anyone can use them. You remember those paint pens that you would SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE and press the tip down on paper until the paint would slowly trickle down! These pens work the same way, but better! Hope you enjoy this project.
It’s really that simple. The reason why I love this project is because anyone can do it. Seriously you could have a paint party and it would be so much fun. Plus your mugs will be personal and every time you look at them you will have happy thoughts!
FYI: WHEN YOU ARE DONE PAINTING YOUR MUG YOU HAVE TO DO THIS….
*Place mug in a cold oven.
*Turn your oven to 350.
*Bake for 45 minutes.
*When timer goes off, leave the mug in the oven to cool off with the oven.
That it is! Now your mug is safe to handle, wash, put in the dishwasher or throw at someone… HAHA, don’t do that we wouldn’t want to ruin the mug for anything stupid!
These mugs I used today have a little bird on the handle and I love it. It’s like a thumb rest, seriously. Plus you can decorate the bird however you want.
These pom pom’s have absolutely NOTHING to do with this post but why not. Look how beautiful they are! My friend Alexa Westerfield sent me these!
DIY Hand Painted Mugs are fun for the whole family so get everyone involved. Plus it’s nice to see your personal mugs in the cabinet when you grab one!
Happy Holiday’s Y’all! Hope you eat too much candy and drink a lot because I will!!! See you in the next post… XOXO Jade
