You Complete Me {LOVE} Mugs

You Complete Me Love Mugs

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
