I went to the Value Village and purchased some plain white mugs in good condition in a selection of sizes. New ones can also be purchased from the dollar store if you are looking for multiples. I got lucky on the ones above. I went to Michales to get a porcelain paint marker and they dont sell them anymore!!! I could get big packages, or transparent, but not opaque black. So I decided to get a fine point Martha Stewart Porcelain Paint instead. Only they were out of black in that too! That’s what I get for leaving it so close to Christmas! So I got this, which is actually a dark grey, its almost black and I have to say i kinda like it better anyway!
Added to this wonderful china was a custom selection of teas. I went to the local Bark Barn and purchased a selection of bulk teas then printed out tags with the name and ‘happy holidays from the halls’ on them and had them cut out by my Silhouette Cameo. I use food safe bakers twine to tie them up and used a needle to go through the edge of the bag.
