Wipe the mug clean with an alcohol pad or soap and water to clean the surface.
Use the large pouncer to paint a few large circles in Mermaid Teal or Love Bird on the mug.
Once the colorful circles are dry, use a small detail brush to paint silver shapes on the colorful circles to make them look like peppermints.
These mugs make a great gift -- especially if you also include your favorite coffee beans, hot cocoa mix, or peppermints in a cellophane bag inside the mug!
