This is a very simple “Do It Yourself” project! All you’ll need to do is get your mug and with a steady hand, draw or write the design you want on the font of your mug with the marker. The more colors you use the better the mug will look. Let the mug sit over night or for a few hours to allow the sharpie to dry, then bake it in the oven for 30 MINUTES AT  350 DEGREES. When your all done wash and use!

This is another very simple DIY Project. Start off by rubbing vaseline on the base line of your shoes (where the sole starts). Fill the Cheap container with your DYE and dip just the front of the shoe in the DYE. Take the warm cloth and start stroking the DYE upward creating a gradient effect. If you want to add more DYE, simply soak the the tip of the warm cloth in the DYE and place the cloth on the part on the shoe you want more color. LET sit overnight, rinse in cold water, let sit out till dry, then wear and enjoy!

Start of by painting the whole potter (except for the rim) in the color of your choice. Let the paint dry, and come up with a witty phrase of pretty design and when the pot is fully dry use your permeant markers to make the design on the front. Let dry for a few hours, add ribbon to the rim of the plant to give it a prettier look if your keeping it indoors. Fill new potter with plant and enjoy!

Start by laying your plain colored sheet on a flat surface, in an area that won’t be disturbed. If you have a stencil, place it on the sheet in the pattern you’d like, and start painting the sheet with the color of your choose. Make sure if your using a stencil to say in the lines, you won’t be able to get rid of paint you don’t want on the sheet. Let dry for a few mins, then pull off the stencil, let sit overnight. Then Hang in the place you choose and enjoy!
