Hello DIY

Monday, June 3, 2013

This DIY was inspired by my friend D, who loves Hello Kitty. My like for Hello Kitty is circumstantial. Every year for the last three years my former boss got me a Hello Kitty cake. Mostly because she loves Hello Kitty. I have a Hello Kitty robe because it's the only one that fit at TJ Maxx and I have a Hello Kitty doll because last year for Christmas I got it for a friend but I have yet to give it to her so instead it's propped up on my nightstand.

So D, wanted to get me this (see pic) to which I responded I can make that . . and holly molly so can you!

All Materials purchased at JoAnn

- white mug or glassware of choice
