Grow Love In My Style-Mug Recycling


Grow Love In My Style-Mug Recycling

Hi friends,
I don’t want a single/specific day for celebrating Love(valentine’s day is here)..well I don’t know what do you think about this,but its my random thinking..I always LOVE & CARE everyone. 24/7-365 *(*
I am excited to share my today’s post..In my this post I am having a message..What do you think..can you get my message?

Honestly today our materialistic life is like a dry branch…We really need to grow some Love at these dry/rough branches/ways of life..So why not to start from today..?Its never too late..

The above mug I got after breaking my coffee mug(showing below)..but now(Luckily) Its broken..a tiny crack is visible here in it..So I am ready to do something Lovely with this :)

Now I hope you want to see a brand new idea & its tutorial..So lets see what I have been done :)
You will need;
A Mug
4 colors of Paints(I use folkart from Plaid)
Mod Podge Sparkle( sealer)
Glitter paint & brushes
Dry Branch
Paper & scissor
patience during its making :)
~~ Process ~~

I was not having pink paint,so I mix a few red in white color for the light pink can take pink otherwise..apply & wait until dry!
Then I add some red glitter paint over it(I think it was better without glitter)the creamy look was also fine!
lets draw the wording Grow with green outline & Heart with red color.

Fill the outline & write the message”GROW LOVE” & then fill the space with some doodles!

Important thing now!

After completing design, You Have To Seal It With Any Sealer & as you know I am a fan of Mod Podge..So I apply Sparkle :)

Some glass stones are STOLEN by me from my brother’s fish aquarium..Sorry my poor fishies..I hope I didnt hurt any of you :)
If you are in a mood of stealing colorful stones from your fish aquarium,be careful, Dont disturb any fish..
Check my Mod Podged Stones Tutorial for this purpose!

I cut this dry branch of grapes plant from was Not totally dry,I cut it & fix it in center of firmly stones in a mug,then I cut a few colored paper hearts & green buds,Not leaves..

& Its Done..An easy way to grow something useful :)

The above are a few of my hand painted pots,One pot I haven’t shared yet,I will share soon!

    That is so pretty. You are so creative! That would make such a nice VD present for my sons teacher but I don’t think mine would come out so lovely on the first try. Uh, I think I’ll bake her something. That’s my specialty. Visiting from Katherine’s Corner.
