Love Mugs

Posted by huntersofhappiness
It’s wedding season year round here in Utah. It seems like I’m always going to a bridal shower, engagement party or reception. All those wedding gifts take a toll on our bank account! But I didn’t want our newlywed budget to ruin my enjoyment of gift giving. I wanted to find the perfect wedding gift that was heartfelt and cute but also didn’t break the bank. After some thinking and a few failed ideas, I got it! I call them “Love Mugs” 🙂 They’re inexpensive, adorable and heartfelt… and I kind of love them.
First– Start with some mugs. Any color will do! I personally like white. (P.S. the dollar store has great ones)
Second– Buy some oil-based sharpie pens at your local craft store. Any colors you want!
 I bought the fine tipped size and they worked perfectly.
Last– Decorate! Really, you can do whatever you want. I kept it simple with Mr. and Mrs. on one side, and lips and mustache on the other. (some other ideas could be the wedding date, est. 2013 or personalizing it with their last name). 
And that is it! The oil-based sharpies are completely permanent on pottery and water resistant.
