DIY Valentine Mugs

This past weekend John and Scout went wild quail hunting near Big Bend National Park, 
and as much as I missed them, I enjoyed having some extra time to finally catch up on a little bloggity blogging! 

I've been so busy lately, and a little DIY (while catching up with some television - by the way, how amazing was the Superbowl halftime show?!) was just what the doctor ordered. I wanted a simple DIY that was Valentine's Day related... so I decided on His and Her mugs!


What you need:
- 2 white coffee mugs
- Oil-based Sharpies
- Letter Stickers


Begin by cutting out the letter stickers that you are looking to use for the mugs. Instead of using the letter sticker, you will use the outline of the letter; place on the mug in the center.


Next, using the stickers (and your creative scissor skills!), create a circle of stickers around the cut out letter boarder.


After all of the stickers are secure, start coloring! I did polka dots and stripes... but any designs will work (just keep in mind that there will be no Sharpie where the stickers are placed!).


Once the Sharpie is completely dry, remove the stickers, clean up any edges, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


After baking, let the mug fully cool, and ta da: you've got yourself Valentine His and Her mugs.
Perfect for breakfast in bed or as a holder for Valentine treats!




And in the name of all things Valentine's Day, treat yourself to a year of Birch Box!
