Last-Minute DIY Christmas Gift: Glitter Dipped Mugs

As usual, I am rushing to get everything done at the last minute AGAIN this year. So, I find myself making glitter-dipped mugs this morning. But what a fun project:)!! I was inspired by Kellie's post over at Nest of Posies, and her "All Mama wants is a silent night" mug (you can read more about her mugs and the basic directions for how to make them here - PS they are dishwasher safe after curing; it's all explained over at Nest of Posies:)).

Sharpie Mugs

I wrote my own sayings on the mugs (that's part of the fun of the project - you can make up your own sayings that will be meaningful to the person you are giving the gift to).

Sharpie Mugs Sayings
Baking away. Basically, for the Sharpie part, you clean the mugs with rubbing alcohol, write your sayings on, and bake them in an oven at 360 degrees. Put the mugs in a cold oven and allow them to heat along with the oven. Also, leave them in the oven to cool completely. This prevents any cracking or breaking due to temperature changes. For the glitter part, see the Nest of Posies link above.
Such a fun, fast, easy, and fairly cheap project for Christmas. Have fun! A/J
