Who isn’t in love with Valentine’s Day?!?! There are only a few people. And those people must just hate love for some reason. The heart wants what it wants. I can’t make excuses for those people. This project is for the ones who love this glorious day of love. If you and your luvvah like to exchange handmade gifts, have I got a project for you?! These DIY Valentine XO Mugs are the perfect addition to your morning coffee/hot chocolate/diet-coke-in-a-mug routine.
- white mugs (similar mug can be found at CB2)
- porcelain paint in assorted colors (can be found at Blick Art or your local craft store)
- thin paint brushes
You don’t really need pictures of the how-to. It’s basically a paint-whatever-you-want-on-the-mug situation. If you don’t have the best hand-writing then jotting down an X and an O are perfect. No skill required, my friends. That’s how I live my life.
Once painted, allow to dry for 24 hours and then bake according to directions on paint. Usually 30 minutes at 300 degrees F.
Package these up with some hot chocolate sticks from Ticket Kitchen, some conversation hearts and other V-day goodies, wrap some twine around it and call it a day. Call it a Valentine’s Day! The pink one is my favorite! 😉
