A Crafty Christmas: Monogrammed Mugs!

December 24, 2016

Merry Christmas! My crafty client Tara wanted to DIY something sweet for the ladies of her family and needed some help in the handwriting department (that's where I come in handy ;)). Her plan was to make personalized mugs, then fill them with wax so they could be candles - how cute?


To make these monogrammed mugs (Dollar Tree, $1), I simply used oil-based markers (Michael's, $3.99), which are said to stick better than your regular ol' Sharpie, though I still believe it's best never to toss these handmade ones in the dishwasher. I drew the classic, swirly (some might say "sorority") monograms on each one. Then, to make them festive, I drew two holly plants around the letters, and one tiny one on the bottom right back.

SO EASY to make and super beautiful and festive! A personalized gift for family and friends always leaves the nicest touch with loved ones. Happy crafting!
