DIY Glitter & Chalkboard Mugs!/Easy Christmas Gifts!

Happy Monday Girlys!!
Lately I’ve been on a DIY kick and I have been wanting to make easy and inexpensive Christmas gifts!
I found these mugs at the dollar store and knew exactly what I was going to do with them! Earlier that week I had been eyeing these gorgeous Kate Spade glitter mugs but I wasn’t willing to fork out $50 for a mug! (That’s just crazy talk!) So instead I bought dollar store mugs and gold glitter!! ( cause glitter is always a good idea right?!) I also had some leftover chalk paint from previous projects so I’d thought I’d do a chalkboard mug as well!
Alright for the glitter mugs you will need:
-White Dollar Store Mug
-Glitter
-Sponge brush
-Modpodge in Gloss Finish
-Painter’s Tape

First tape off the bottom half of the mug with your painter’s tape. (Don’t Forget the handle!)

Next apply modpodge to the taped off section of the mug and generously coat the mug with glitter.

Your Mug should look something like this!
Make sure you put a piece of paper on the bottom to reuse the loose glitter that has fallen.

Before the glue dries, carefully peel off the tape or else the modpodge will seal it.

Make sure to let them dry overnight and for the following week keep repeating these steps to seal the glitter!
Super Glam and makes great Christmas gifts!
Now I loved how the chalkboard mugs came out! They’re so much fun and look really cool!
For the chalkboard mugs you will need:
-White Mug from the Dollar Store
-BLACK Chalk Paint
-Sponge Brush
-Painter’s Tape
To start tape off the bottom half of the mug just like the glitter mugs. Paint 3 coats of the chalk paint onto the mug. One of the reasons I love chalk paint is because it dry so fast!

After the paint has dried peel off the tape and voila you’re done! Now it’s time to draw whatever you’d like! I used a chalk marker but you can totally use regular chalk as well!
