About a month ago or so one of my favourite local bloggers, North Shore Mama, shared a video link from BuzzFeed DIY (seen here) on how to make these pretty marbled looking mugs. It was super simple looking, the video is less than a minute, and I was instantly drawn to it. The next night while wondering around Superstore (with out kids, so it’s like a vacation right?) I came across some mugs that were priced at $1.25 and instantly scooped up 4 so that I could try out the DIY. I picked up a $4 jar of Joe Fresh polish, making the total for the project come in just under $10 (I think the mugs ended up being 20% off!)
As pictured above the supplies you need for this project are very minimal.
a deep tupperware container filled with warm water
clear acrylic sealant spray (not pictured)
From there you simply drizzle your nail polish over the water, blow on it to disperse it a bit, then dip your mug in the water. As you dip your mug in, twist it slowly and the nail polish will cling to it. For best results its recommend you work quickly. I highly recommend not letting your toddler help you with this project as there is a good chance they will just dump the whole bottle of nail polish into the water! Take a peek at the video (link above) for a fabulous tutorial and happy crafting everyone!
