If you’re like me, and like most people in the world, you hate it when you have to choose a gift for someone. It’s just painful to have to choose a gift for someone when, deep down, you actually know the person you are getting the gift for will probably not even care about the gift a few minutes after he receives it. So you end up spending a lot of money on something that won’t really be useful. We all know there is a solution, to do something yourself. A homemade project is certainly a lot better than something just rushed out of a store to fulfill a need for a gift. But then again, who has time to do a real homemade gift project nowadays? It’s too hard. On top of that, no one really knows what to do. Comedies give us an idea – homemade coupons! That is, however, a terrible idea. No worries, we got a new idea! Custom colored coffee mugs, homemade! They are super easy to make and don’t take a lot of time or money out of your busy day. They might be incredibly easy, but since you did them yourself, whoever got the gift I going to have to appreciate it and take into account it was homemade.
The process is incredibly easy. All you need is a white mug, some nail polish and deep plastic recipient (deep enough to dip your mug in it). All you need to do is set things up, fill up the recipient with water and grab your nail polish. Then, you proceed to drop a little bit of the nail polish into the water (just a few drops, of whatever color you’d like the mug to have – if you want more than one color, you can add it to the water as well). As soon as you drop the nail polish into the water just form some crazy shapes and then dip the mug into the water. Remove it, pat it dry with a paper towel and let it rest for 2-3 hours. There you go!
You should, however, consider that as soon as you drop the nail polish into the water you need to act as quickly as possible, or it will dry, so make sure to have everything ready before dropping it. Furthermore, the design will simply be washed off in the washing machine, so these mugs need to be hand washed every time. – so make sure to inform anyone you’re going to be giving them to. Finally, make sure to play a little bit with the colors and shapes, the results can be incredibly amazing just as long as you put your heart and soul into it.
