I promise this is the last one...
Well maybe one more, I do have a tiny bit of paint left, and I'd hate to waste it ;)
These are Christmas and birthday gifts for the two high school teachers on my list.
I used a mug that was already black, and painted the outside, excluding the handle and one inch around the top.
So glad to be able to tick of two of the trickier people on my list. And I love how you could change it up to give the students a warning, like:
"test next week on observational skills"
"no patience left"
"no homework today!"
Or use it for a loved one and write a message to them when you get them a hot drink.
