DIY Coffee Cup

Hi Guys!

As you all probably know by now, especially if you follow me on social media, i love coffee.

Recently i discovered a new love of mine, DIY coffee cups. I started out by doing some with oil based sharpie markers, which turned out ok. But then i got a Cricut and oh my gosh how fun it is to create different designs on that thing. I’m now totally obsessed with using it to create DIY coffee cups.

Here’s a recent cup i did with my Cricut.

See what i mean? Isn’t that adorable?! It says “This Day is Powered by Coffee”.

Today i thought i would show you both ways (Sharpie and Cricut) to create fun DIY coffee cups. P.S. With the holidays coming up in a few short months, these would make great gifts for anyone (not just coffee drinkers)…

Method #1 – Made With Oil Based Sharpies

Supplies needed:

White Coffee Cup (you can get these for like $0.88 at Walmart)

Oil Based Sharpies

Step 1: Decorate cup with sharpie markers.

Step 2: Let it sit for a few hours. You could even leave it overnight

Step 3: Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. *Tip: put the cup in the oven before turning oven on and leave it in the oven until the oven cools completely, to avoid cracks.*

Step 4: Hand wash and enjoy!

Method #2 – Made With Cricut

Supplies needed:

White Coffee Cup (you can get these for like $0.88 at Walmart)

Cricut (I have this one)

Vinyl (for this project i used Midnight)

Cricut cutting mat

Cricut Vinyl Transfer Tape

Free SVG file 

Step 1: Download the free SVG file, then open Cricut Design Space and upload the file to it.

Step 2: Once you have decided what size you want it, let your Cricut do all the cutting.

Step 3: Remove all the excess vinyl then transfer your design over to the transfer tape.

Step 4: Apply design to coffee cup with transfer tape. Then discard transfer tape.

Step 5: Enjoy!

  • Today’s arts/crafts project is making EARTH signs.
    Here is how you make them:
    First you start out with a piece of construction paper or cardstock (any color you want to use will do, i just happened to have blue paper on hand).
    Using glue write out the letters EARTH.

Then take whatever you have found around your yard (grass, flowers, dirt, sticks, etc.) and attach it to the glue.

And something like this should be your outcome…

That’s it for today’s celebration! Stop by again tomorrow for day 5!

we-love-earth-week

Here’s what we have been up today:

  • Our snack for today was inspired from this pinterest post, however mom fail, i forgot to buy pretzel sticks, so my kids really had no idea what this was supposed to be…

tree snack earth day

Oh well, they all still ate it. I added in the banana slice to make it look like the sun.

  • I download that printable yesterday from Teachers Pay Teachers and it had these fun word wall cards that we used today to talk about different Earth Day vocabulary words and ways that they each help the Earth.

Then we drew pictures of how we can help the Earth

we-love-earth-week

Here’s what’s on the agenda today:

  • For our snack today we are having “Ants on a log”

IMG_3944

I make mine a little differently than the norm, because my kids don’t like raisins. For our “Ants on a log” we use; celery, natural peanut butter, and vegan chocolate chips. All my kiddos thoroughly enjoyed them, here’s Cruz giving them a thumbs up!

  • Weather permitting we are going on a nature walk today, and i’m going to use this free printable from Teachers Pay Teachers.
