Why just fill a mug with candy, when you can decorate it, too? Perfect for the office, get-well wishes, or just about any occasion you can think of, this dollar store mug will lift many a spirit! Use tacky craft glue to attach the foam ball to the mug, so that when the candy is gone, a hot soapy wash will prepare the mug for its proper use!
For each mug you will need
1 foam ball (large enough to sit on top of the mug)
wrapped candy (enough to cover exposed foam base)
ball-headed straight pins, the longer kind* **
wide ribbon, for bow
cardstock, tacky craft glue, scissors
Make sure the foam ball sits on top of the mug before you begin. If it does not, choose a larger size ball. With tacky craft glue, glue the foam ball to the mug; allow to dry thoroughly. With the straight pins, begin pinning the first row of candy to the foam ball around the top of the mug, starting and ending near the handle.
