There are so many ways to embellish mugs and glasses. I have a few go to big cozy mugs that I use for my morning coffee. Yet I still get excited when a new one comes my way, in my opinion you can never have enough mugs. Use them at home or give them as gifts filled with goodies. You can glass paint, glass paint for a unique colorful look, or even add a glass paint. I’ve even added succulents to mugs for an out of the box planter. The options are endless. This mug took just a few minutes to make and my kids love them, there is something special about drinking out of a big grown up mug with a cute character on it.

Keep in mind that this technique is not dishwasher safe. A regular Sharpie will wash off with excessive heat or scrubbing. Gentle hand washing keeps the design in tact. If you want something a bit more durable grab a glass paint or paint pen and cure it using the instructions on the bottle.
The cold winter months are a bit more bearable with a warm home and tasty treats.
Thanks for visiting!
