What supplies do I need to make a DIY Flower Mug Vase for Valentine’s Day?
How do I make a colorful Mug Vase for flowers?
To start this project, tape off the top and bottom of your mug with painter’s tape.
Using shades of orange, coral and pink start to create different sizes of dashes and dots.
I continued to add more paint to fill out the mug.
Next, I used thin painter’s tape to create a pattern along the mug’s handle.
After removing the tape, a colorful DIY Mug Vase was left!
How to arrange flowers in a coffee mug
I adore using monochrome colors in my flower arrangements. For this little flower bouquet in a mug, I used a beautiful pink / peach colored rose, along with a few simple eucalyptus pieces.
Using seeded eucalyptus is my favorite. I love the slender leaves and the seeds that come along with it on the branches.
Start by placing the eucalyptus in the coffee mug first and allow it to drape out a bit. Then trim your roses down so that the buds are just barely higher the top of your mug. This creates a gorgeous dramatic look!
I love that the colors of the mug vase tie into the colors of the roses. And there is nothing more lovely than the smell of fresh flowers in your home!
