Hello everyone! I’m thrilled to be here today to share my latest project … a set of ‘you complete me’ LOVE mugs. This set would be a great gift for someone special OR for that special couple. With Valentine’s Day and wedding season just around the corner … you may just want to make a couple sets!
I love a good homemade gift … and I love a good thrift store find. This project just happens to involve both! When I spotted these white Crate and Barrel mugs at Goodwill the other week, I knew I would find a way to put them to good use! At $0.99, I really couldn’t go wrong … right?!?!
If your Goodwill doesn’t happen to have these beauties, Ikea and Target are also great sources of inexpensive plain white mugs. Besides the mugs, you’ll need:
- Adhesive letter stencils. You could use a variety of stencils here (purchased letter stencils, stencils made with a Silhouette or Cricut and adhesive vinyl, etc). I ended up using letter stickers from Target (sold in the poster aisle). Instead of using the letters themselves (as I’m sure most people use these for, I used the outsides to form the stencil).
- Embossing powder in two colors
- White / clear stamp pad
- Heat gun
