Hi friends! I’m super excited to share this project with you! I really love it! It is pretty simple and is such a cute gift! I gave this to my sweet friend Jamie after she babysat my kiddos for an entire day! It was also one of the projects I did for the Joann’s Look Book! It was part of the Glamorous Gifts collection.

Hand wash your mug (just in case!) I have heard you can put them in the dishwasher but I haven’t tried it so I suggest hand washing.  This would be an adorable gift for Christmas, Birthdays, Mother’s Day, or a cute thank you gift!

  1. I LOVE this! So I have done the sharpie on the mug before but it usually washes off, even if you bake it and hand wash it:( Just a tip is to use the “Sharpie Paint” oil based marker, you can find them at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. They work great because you don’t have to bake them and they seem to stay on a lot better. Love all your ideas! 🙂
