Mug Turned Colorful Candle Holder

I recently was gifted with a few bottles of Dala glass glaze. Some time ago, I received a white mug - the mug was used as the gift box for a small gift. I wanted to do something with the mug. There was nothing wrong with the mug, except that it was white... :-) The glass glaze created the perfect opportunity. I decided to turn the mug into a nifty candle holder.

Total Time: weekend project, drying time included

Yield: one candle holder



  1. Use the cloth to clean the mug with vinegar and allow to dry.
  2. Use the turquoise glaze and sponge to paint the outside and handle of the cup. Allow to dry for 30 minutes. Note: If you want to use the cup for drinking purposes, do not paint up to the lip of the mug.
  3. Use the emerald glaze to add shoots of grass all around the mug. Allow to dry for 30 minutes.
  4. Paint small magenta flowers around the mug. Also add some magenta dots to the bottom of the grass.
  5. Add some blue dots to add shadows around the base of the grass.
  6. In the plastic cup, mix emerald and blue glaze to obtain a darker green glaze. Use this darker green to add shadows to the grass shoots, and to color the centre of each flower.
  7. Paint the mug's handle with the magenta glaze.
  8. Finish it off with blue dots on each side of the handle.
  9. Allow to dry for 24 hours before using.
