2. Thoroughly wash and dry the mug and plate. Use white dimensional paint to create a pair of mitts on one side of each mug and multiple pairs around each plate rim. 3. Write "Warm your mitts" under the mug mitts with the black marker. Connect each mitt pair with a white, loopy line, stopping and starting the string line around the writing on the mug. 4. Outline the mitts and make ribbing details with green dimensional paint. Use red dimensional paint to make a heart on each mitt. Let the paint cure for 24 hours; then bake according to the paint manufacturer's directions.

More Ideas:
  • Make cloth napkins to match, painting a single pair of mitts in one corner of each, using fabric paints.
  • Fill a painted mug with hot cocoa mix and fill a plate with cookies to give as a gift.
