Hi Pinkwhen readers! Its Sarah here from EDEA Smith.

Do you know there are just over 40 days left till Christmas! I know right, are you ready?

If your looking for a unique gift that no-one else will be giving then this is it! You can personalise these little beauties to your hearts content and even the kids can have a go.

DIY - Handmade Christmas Mugs


> White Mug
> Sharpie Pens
> Access to an oven

> Choose your Sharpies (Oil based work the best)
> Decide on your design. 
> Get drawing (steady hand!) you can wipe off any mistakes with a clean cloth
> Leave your mugs for an hour or two before baking (less likely to smudge)
> Bake your mug at 350F/175C for around 30mins. Make sure you put your mug into the oven from cold, if you put your mug into a hot oven its likely to break.
> Leave it to cool.
> Wrap and present your beautiful gifts

Names - Why not put Grandmas name on the mug, What about Daddy's favourite drink? Coffee, white, one sugar?
Christmas Decor - Holly, Snowman, Carols, Stars, Santa, Gifts, Bells... the list is endless. Let your creative side flow :)
Let the kids go crazy - why not skip the Christmas theme a little with your younger children and let them doodle away on a mug, this makes a great gift for Grandparents who love the kiddos artwork which can be kept forever.

Don't forget underneath your mug! or why not inside your mug?

Who wouldn't want to receive one of these. Not only are they practical and look AMAZING but they can house a warm cup of tea for these cold Winter evenings. Win! Win!

I'm off to get the kettle on ;)

Till next time
