How to make a gorgeous Easter Mug { guest post }

Prepare yourself for an overload of Easter crafts, activities and recipes as we end this Easter craft series with a bang! We’ll be sharing a new craft every day until Sunday!

Today’s guest post is written by my beautiful friend Cathie from Melbourne Epicure.  Many of you will know her as the best baker around and she shares many of her delicious recipes on her blog, the generous soul that she is.  Cathie and I share a love of all things craft and parties and she has been kind enough to share an adorable Easter activity that she did with her children.


Bunny Thumbprint Mugs
I absolutely love using the kid’s handprints and footprints to create art, it’s something that just says childhood to me.  
Maybe it’s my childhood memory of finger-painting or maybe just because it’s cute.
Here’s a little quick craft we did with the kids for Easter.  
It really is quick and can make a perfect last minute gift.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Cup or plate
Ceramic paint
Ceramic marker
Paintbrushes
A few little thumbs and fingers!


What to do:
Using your paint brush, paint your child’s thumb and index finger.

Gently press onto mug first with their thumb and then with their finger.  Allow to dry.
Continue until you have as many bunnies as you’d like.

When the paint has dried, paint on some bunny tails with white paint.


Allow to dry and then draw on the bunny ears.


Follow paint manufacturer’s instructions on bottle on setting paint.

There you have it, just in time for someone special this Easter.
