DIY Crafts With Mugs

To make a beautiful and useful pencil, toothbrush holder or candlestick, you will need the following: scissors, glue, twine, lace and ribbons, artificial flowers, beads, and rhinestones. However, you need to remove grease from the mug first.

After you have cleaned off grease from the mug, use pliers to remove the remaining parts of the handle. Be careful not to get hurt. Next, sand the bumps off with sandpaper. If you do not like the pattern on the mug, you can paint it white or a pastel color.

When the paint is dry, start attaching embellishments with a glue gun. We decorated the pencil holder with twine and artificial flowers. To do this, apply glue all around the mug and immediately wind twine around it as well. Glue the flower stems, hiding the ends in the upper loops of the rope.

We chose to adorn the toothbrush holder with lace and complement it with bead halves. To reinforce the glue, we finished with an all-purpose varnish. We painted the candlestick and decorated it with rhinestones and butterflies. To fix the candle, we recommend that you melt part of the wax and then insert it.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
