Mug Madness, take 2:
I saw these 4 seasons mugs on Pinterest a while back and completely loved them. I guess I'm on a mug making kick after the MPLS city skyline mugs from a while back. I checked out the Etsy shop they came from, planning on purchasing them if they were the right price. I mean, support small or local businesses and artists, right?
My jaw dropped when I saw the $144 price tag. PLUS a $12 shipping charge. Yeah, I like them- but there was no way that I was going to shell out over $150 dollars for mugs. I knew I could DIY a version for a tiny tiny fraction of the price,and that's just what I did!
I made a stop over to the trusty Dollar Tree and grabbed 4 mugs (for a dollar each, duh).
I started out by drawing the same stick tree on all four mugs, and went to decorating season by season from there on out. Since fall is my favorite season- I started there. A few falling leaves and some straggler birds flying South for the winter later, I was done. Boom.
Spring turned out a little crowded with the budding leaves, bird in the nest, and passing clouds:
Here they are all together!
As finessed as the Etsy collection? No.
$152 dollars cheaper than the Etsy collection? Yes.
Which season mug is your favorite?
