Christmas Mugs

We wanted to do something for the guys my husband works with. I came up with the idea of a mug with chocolate dipped pretzels, hot chocolate cones and a dipped chocolate covered spoon. He then made it more elaborate and wanted the mugs etched with the company name and then person's name. Also, he wanted to add miniature alcohol bottles (the size you get on a flight)! So I did that all! lol Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure!


I saw a blog the other day where the owner made some pretty nifty EAT letters to go in her kitchen. For the life of me I cannot find that blog again! I searched and searched only to end up empty handed. So, if by chance the owner of that blog sees this post, please let me know so I can link you! :)

Anyways, yesterday I went to Michael's and bought some of the large letters. I got the white coated ones! I painted them last night black and then sanded them all over to give them sort of a rustic, warn down appearance. I then covered them in Mod Podge to give them a glossy coat! :D I really like them! They are already hanging up in my dining room! :) I am trying to decide as to whether or not buy some more letters or make some sort of decoration for the other side of the wall. Any and all ideas are welcome!

Thanks for looking, comments are welcome as well! :)
