Valentine Day Gift Idea – Heart Mug.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like the world could use a little more love these days.

Attach heart sticker to mug. Using paint pens (I used three colors) start adding dots around the sticker. Concentrate them more densely closer to the sticker and then space out as move farther away.
Once dry, remove sticker.
Let dry overnight. To set paint, bake in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Make sure you put the mug in the cold oven and then turn on. Then let mug stay in oven to cool off after you turn off the oven.

And that’s it!
Happy Valentine’s Day, my friends! And I promise to create more …
and stress less!
