Rhinestone embellished coffee mug
Typically, Valentine’s Day is often thought of a holiday for couples; however, you can use this holiday to
let a special friend how much she means to you.
For this project I used:
1 coffee mug
12ss Cystal rhinestones
12ss Light Siam rhinestones
Wax tipped tool
Begin by sketching your design out on graph paper. Using graph paper helps to keep your design symmetrical. Once your design is done, lay a piece of wax paper over it.
I worked on the word “love” and the "heart" separately. Lay the crystal rhinestones on the wax paper following your sketch. Lay scotch tape over the design so that the rhinestones stick to the scotch tape. Peel off the wax paper.
Lay flat. Place a drop of E6000 slightly smaller than the rhinestones on each of the rhinestones. Tape to the coffee mug and allow to dry for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, peel off the tape and repeat the process for the heart, allowing to dry for another 24 hours.
When dry, peel off the tape.
Fill the mug with packets of flavored hot chocolate, tea or coffee. Wrap in clear cellophane paper, tie with a ribbon and your gift is done! Your friend will love this and think of you every time she sips her favorite beverage.
Now you have the perfect gift to let that best friend that you care about them.
