The Holiday season is just around the corner and many of us will exchange gifts with family and friends. Gift shopping can be a lot of fun but also time consuming and a little stressful as well. Over the years I noticed something in my kids behaviour that makes me very happy, although they love receiving gifts, they enjoy giving them even more and last night we had a perfect example of that. Every year our school sets up a Christmas Gift Shop where students have a chance to purchase inexpensive presents for their family and friends. Both kids, but especially Maria, LOVE shopping there. Yesterday, she came home with a bag full of trinkets, nicely wrapped and ready to go under the Christmas tree, but she was too excited to wait therefore one present ( the one that was meant for all of us) was opened and Mr. Dangling Feet ( the kids came up with the name) became part of our family:)
The kids have a long list of people who they want to acknowledge with at least something little and what can be better then hand made goodies:) Yesterday, they were making decorative mugs and I really like how it turned out…. Very simple but effective DIY and what I love – not very messy:)
You will need:
ceramic mugs, cups, vases, candle holders, napkin rings, etc
This is how you do it:
Fill about 3/4 of the container with warm water. Pour a little of the nail polish ( you can mix colours or shades), swirl with a toothpick. Dip a dish to cover desired area. Let dry very well. If the nail polish gets inside the cup you can easily remove it with a nail polish remover.
Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. I would avoid dishwasher and only hand wash to protect the design.
