ombre painted mug

Our friend Christine & Co. took a plain mug and transformed it into a pretty chic cuppa with the help of an ombre color treatment (that is, graduated color from light to dark). She was clever and bought just two tasty colors from the new Martha Stewart craft paint line, and cleverly combined them to make four colors. Now that’s a dollar store craft I can appreciate! You can get plain mugs at the dollar store, and the Martha paint can be baked in the oven to make it dishwasher safe. [how to make an ombre painted mug]
