Bought these super cute coffee mugs, $1 each brand new! Heavy stoneware with an awesome iridescent glaze, almost reminds me of carnival glass. Anyhoo....guess who broke one? I was soooooo ticked. Almost tossed the mug, but then noticed how it almost broke in perfect halves.
Hmmmmmm....so, I made art out of it!
Spray painted a frame, not well I might add. Then grabbed some coordinating scrapbook paper and Mod Podged it to the outer portion of the mat. Left the inner part alone, and then I hot glued the mug directly to the wooden frame backer. I liked the texture and rustic finish on the backer board a lot, think it adds some dimension. I'm so happy I didn't toss the mug!
I'm linking up to Kimba's DIY Tuesday (again!): http://asoftplace.net/
P.S. Forgive my horrible photos, camera wan't cooperating at all today!
