DIY Watercolor Mug

Hello everyone! Today I decided to try out this nifty watercolor mug idea floating around. It is a DIY that is so easy and inexpensive! Want to try it out? Keep reading!

Super cool looking right? So here are the things you will need!

  • A mug. You could really use any color mug but obviously white makes the colors really pop! I actually got this one at Dollar Tree. Isn’t that awesome?? I couldn’t find a nice white mug for $1 anywhere else! This one is super cute so it was meant to be.
  • Some sort of container filled with warm water. I used a piece of tupperware. You may want to use something you don’t mind getting nail polish on. Also, the wider the mouth of the container, the better. Mine was alright but a bit small for my mug. It made it a little more difficult to coat the mug correctly.
  • Nail polish. You can use as many colors as you want! I used two, but you could use one or five–it’s up to you!
  • A toothpick. This really is optional; if you don’t have one you can still make this, but it helps to make the design a little cooler.

LET’S GET STARTED!

STEP 1: Find a nice surface to do this. The kitchen table is fine. I did it on my living room floor with some cardboard underneath. Now drip your nail polish into the water. I would suggest this be done as fast as possible because it becomes increasingly difficult to do as the nail polish dries. Feel free to place as many drops as you like.

STEP 2: If you want to make your design really interesting you can swirl the color around a bit with a toothpick.

STEP 3: Dip your mug! Do your best to just dip the sides of the mug. I did not and got some of the design on the bottom as well as the inside of the mug (oops!). It’s OK if you do , though! Just use some nail polish remover wherever you don’t want the color to have ended up.

STEP 4: Allow your mug to dry at least 2 hours. And you’re done! You end up with a unique, beautiful, and simple to make mug! You will never find another exactly like it! Go you!

I thought this was so cool looking and pretty. An optional extra step is to dip it again with more colors as many times as you like. Just be sure to let the mug dry in between dips. This mug is now handwash only as well. Enjoy!

Why You Need to Start Saving Money

I was the worst with money. If there was a Spenders Anonymous meeting, I would still have to go once a week as I would be in recovery. I am the ULTIMATE overspender. But thanks to Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace Program as well as working as a bank teller, I have come to learn a lot about the best ways to spend and save money.

Now I know EVERYONE who ever talks about budgeting generally brings up Dave Ramsey, and I bet there are people out there who get really annoyed by that, but the reason is because his methods really do work and they help even the worst spenders and those with the highest debt to have better finances. And while I love what Dave Ramsey has to offer, there are a few ways I have tweaked his methods to best fit my family and our situation. Continue reading
