drink coffee out of a color-popping DIY mug
All of the best things come in mugs - coffee, tea lattes, single serving chocolate chip cookies - and I just made them even better with a little color pop. I don't believe in plain, boring mugs - after, all they're the one piece of dishware that it is socially acceptable to have non-matching sets of! So embrace that and make one for yourself! Do not microwave.

  • How to make a cup / mug. Bubble Mug - Step 3
    Step 3

    Clean handle of the mug with rubbing alcohol - allow to air dry. Coat a small section of the outer handle with the Mod Podge dishwasher safe gloss. Adhere bubbles to this section, allow to dry (about 1 hour).

    Continue to add bubbles, randomly grouping per color and size in as large of sections as you can without shifting/detachment during drying.

    Make sure all blank spaces are filled in, stacking bubbles to add dimensionality.

    Mod Podge suggests curing for 1 month - avoid dishwashing before then.
