You know your blogging habit is getting serious when you see things in charity shops and instantly think of how they can be incorporated into a craft for a blog post. The instant I saw this cup I thought of a way to recycle it into a fairy house. As you maybe able to guess from our blog title fairies are more than popular in our house. There are loads of variations of fairy house/ gardens on the blogsphere/pintrest so I have been mulling over ways to make one (as I know it will get alot of use!) I recently saw this fab idea of personalising mugs using permanent markers (an American brand of permanent marker) and then cooking them to make the image stick.
Take a cup and some markers (if you want to stock up on some like the ones we used click on our affilate link in blue for the pens).
Add a butterfly.
Then all you need are some fairies to move in. A perfect set up for outdoor play.
And indoor play too.
EDIT: Our design has faded with time so its not totally permanent but its still visible (and playable)
