I have alot of people to buy for (big family)..So I came up with this idea..It cost me about $50 for 20 finished mugs. I bought all of the mugs from a local thrift store for 50 cents each! I like the fact that the money I spent at the thrift store goes to help people in need also. I hope you all enjoy my very first how-to..I would love some feedback :D
Go to your local thrift store and purchase as many mugs as you need.
While your out shopping, pick up the other supplies. I got my hot chocolate packets at costco in bulk.
Soak your mugs in hot soapy water.
Wash and dry them by hand.
Stuff your mugs with hot chocolate packets and mini marshmallows.
You can put anything you want in the mugs.. candies, apple cider packets with a cinnamon stick, gourmet coffee.. the possibilities are endless!
Put the mug into a cellophane bag.
As you tie the opening shut with the ribbon.. add a candy cane for decoration.
