Between the deployment & move, this year seems like such a blur. I can't believe we're only 2 months away from 2015 already! o.O
Seeing as the holidays are right around the corner, the monsters & I decided to channel our craftiness this afternoon & make some easy DIY gifts!
I give you customized bathroom cups!
Of course, there's got to be one that doesn't cooperate & that just happened to be x3's this time, as her stickers (gwen) wouldn't all fit on one face of the tumbler. lol
*The materials? Plastic tumblers (don't recommend glass/mason jars for littles!) & wall art alphabet stickers. Extra wall art stickers could be used to decorate around the tumbler if desired!
*Why wall art stickers? Because, if you're like me, you're going to reposition something a time or two (...or ten) in order to line them up just the way you want it WITHOUT the image losing it's ability to stick!
*The cost? I got 8 tumblers (4 in each color) & 1 pack of wall art ABCs for just $5. That's 3 tumblers for the monsters, one for DH & I, & 4 to give away as gifts for the holidays!
*Use? Anything really. For us I'm using them as individual toothbrush/paste holders (we're in the "don't touch my stuff!" / "quit breathing my air!" stage. -sigh-). For gifts, the possibilities are endless. They can hold tooth brushing essentials, or serve as a hair brush/pony/comb holder, or even as a pen/pencil cup for say a teacher or coworker. Anything but an -actual- cup really, as I don't think the stickers would be up for that kind of wear & tear. ;)
Note - Not necessary, but brushing a coat or two of Modge Podge over the stickers always helps!
Hope you all enjoyed! Have a favorite holiday DIY? Pass this one & share yours here! :)
