And then I made an owl mug

I think we all knew this was coming. Really, once I bought the porcelain paint pen for the wedding gift, it was inevitable that I would make myself an owl mug.

Breakfast today was freshly ground coffee in my owl mug and a mini apple pie! (Pie blog post coming soon – it’s been a while since I did a baking post!)

Seriously, it just makes me smile every time I look at my new mug.

Cost breakdown – the mug was $3 or $4 at Target and the paint pen was around $6 at Blick, but originally purchased for the wedding gift. So I would say it was around a $7 project total, dividing the cost of the paint pen between this and the other project. For comparison’s sake, this cute owl mug from ModCloth is $15, plus shipping.

Three cheers for budget friendly projects! And mine says “hoot” on it, which is just frankly adorable in my opinion.

  1. You could hook up with a grade school and make holiday gift mugs for the teachers from the kids. Parents would love it. Teachers probably already have too many mugs, but yours would be the cutest.
