I’ve been dreaming of the holiday season since August and it has finally arrived! I am already starting to see holiday ideas flooding Pinterest and the pops of red and green are appearing in store windows.
This project is a great way to add a personal detail to a homemade gift. The engraving pen is easy to use and this project is as simple as tracing your design. Fill it with candies or drink mix and you’ll have a personalized gift that everyone will love.
Holly Jolly Engraved Mugs Project Directions:
Using the included calligraphy letters template, trace your phrase onto the Mason jar mug with permanent marker. Connect the letters together to form your own words.
With the engraving pen, gently trace the permanent marker. In this case, slow and steady does win the race. Do not press down, but instead rely on the pen to carve the design for you.
Wipe the mug off periodically with a dry paper towel. When finished, wipe the mug down with rubbing alcohol to remove any excess permanent marker.
Fill with candies or drink mix and celebrate the season of giving!
Warning: Always wear protective eyewear while using this etching tool and do not breath the dust from the engraving process. Use with adult supervision only.
