I've Got You Covered
You will love this last minute DIY gift idea. The gift is quick and easy to make along with being really cool. And the best thing is......you probably have what you need at home to put it together.
Copper Mugs Filled With Goodies
I made these mugs filled with goodies for the neighbor ladies who lunch together. We try to have lunch every week but everyone can’t always make it. One or more of us usually has a Doctor’s appointment or another commitment that trumps the lunch.
I bought 4 copper mugs at Goodwill for $4.99. These are known as Moscow Mule mugs. The copper keeps drinks really cold. Anyway, I got a good deal on the mugs and they were in perfect condition.
I cleaned up two of them to make the gift mugs.
One of my favorite chocolate candies is Lindor Truffles, the milk chocolate kind. I bought a big bag in the hopes there would be extras after the mugs were filled.
I bought two tubes of scented hand cream at Tuesday Morning. Tuesday Morning is a great place to find deals on fancy stuff.
I also gathered shredded paper and ribbon from my stash. The clear cellophane paper is from the Dollar Tree. You need it to wrap everything up.
I put shiny silver shredded paper in one mug and pretty blue shredded paper in the other.
Next I put a tube of hand cream in each mug.
Then I added a few pieces of candy to each mug. You notice the candy weighted down the paper so I pulled it up and puffed everything before wrapping the mugs in cellophane.
I set the mug on the cellophane wrap and cut a square the width of the cellophane. You want to have plenty of cellophane to gather at the top of the mug.
I gathered the cellophane around the mug and tied it with curly ribbon a couple of inches above the mug.
Then I used my scissors to curl the ribbon. I probably could have made the shredded paper filler look a bit neater. I was in a hurry to get them done and I actually put them together in about 15 minutes.
See how easy that was. You can take this idea and run with it. You probably have extra mugs at home and maybe some candy? Or run up to Dollar Tree, Tuesday Morning, or your favorite shopping spot and pick up a couple of fun things to add to your mugs.
