We love warm drinks at our house. My girls never refuse a mug full of hot chocolate. :)
I made a fun, simple personalized mug to give to each of my little ones on Valentine's Day.
I had seen these DIY mugs before, but my favorite mugs were made by Elsie. They're so cute. She personalized her mugs using her beautiful handwriting. I love hers, but I'm not that fond of my handwriting. ;) I used stickers instead as templates.
I used the negative cutout of the heart sticker (the outside sticker portion of the heart itself), and alphabet stickers to personalize each of their mugs (oh, I should mention I got the mugs at the $1 store!):
Then I used a hot pink sharpie and colored the hearts in. It didn't take long for the ink to dry. After they dried, I removed the stickers.
[Edit: These need to be baked at 350* for 30 minutes. I forgot that very important step and the ink washed right off! It was easy to redo though. ;)]
I like how they turned out.
These are for Lani and Evie:
These are for Addy and Juli:
Juli obviously won't be using hers until she's older. She and I have the same initial, so maybe I'll use hers until she claims it. ;)
I'll think I'll fill them with some candy, and surprise them on Valentine's Day.
