To All the Amazing Mothers

Mother’s Day is coming up on us fast (in fact it is this Sunday), and though we cannot go out and celebrate, there are still ways to celebrate her while staying home. Mother’s Day is a day where we celebrate the amazing women in our lives while pampering and being extra kind to them. Consider making mom breakfast in bed, or doing all the cooking for the day, cleaning the house, or simply just giving her a few hours to herself. Sometimes, even the little things can mean the whole world. 

If you are looking for an easy gift idea, below are the step by step instructions on how to make a cute and easy ‘MOM’ Mug.  All supplies can be found at our local Michaels which have curbside and same day pick-up available.

Supplies:

  • Plain coffee mug – any color 
  • Acrylic paint
  • “MOM” in stickers
  • Paint brush, sponge, cotton swab, etc. 

Steps:

  1. Wash and dry the mug
  2. Place stickers at bottom of mug, spelling out ‘MOM’ (TIP: place the stickers on a piece of fabric, such as a towel, before placing on mug to make removing stickers from mug easier)
  3. Use the paint to make polka dots, stripes, or any other pattern along the bottom half of the mug (TIP: avoid the lip area of the mug)
  4. Peel off stickers while the paint is still wet, then allow mug to completely dry
  5. To cure the mug, place mug in oven, then set to 350*F and allow to bake for 30 minutes, then turn off oven, leaving mug in oven, and let cool to room temperature
  6. Hand Wash the mug, then fill with coffee, or moms favorite drink
