On our most recent vacation I found a new love for Rose’ Cider. Yes, this is a thing and it’s super tasty! This month for the Dollar Squad challenge I decided to give a dollar store mug an inexpensive makeover that screams Patriotism and fun. To make something that would last dishwashing and, let’s be honest, a lot of use etching the glass won out over just a simple vinyl decal. Creating a patriotic etched mug is not only easy but it’s cheap. For $5 you can have your own personalized mug. Let’s get started.
Start by cleaning your mug with Alcohol to clean the surface from any oils or junk that might be on there and not allow the etching cream to work properly.Apply transfer tape to your stencil.
Attach stencil to mug. Make sure to find center and decide if you are a righty or a lefty mug holder.Apply etching cream liberally and let sit for 15 min. Try to keep the mug on its backside rather than standing up to prevent runs on places you don’t want.Rise the mug thoroughly with soap and water. Remove the stencil. Once your patriotic etched mug is dry you are ready to enjoy a drink. Or in this case 2 orrrr you can just make this your box of wine glass. 24 floz isn’t too many for a cookout is it?
