Disguise-O Mug

I would have shown this to you sooner, but I couldn't risk my dad reading this blog before Christmas Day. So you get to see it now. For part of my dad's Christmas present, I made him this.

It's a mustache mug. I just got a white mug and painted a 'stache on it using paint made especially for ceramics. I had to bake it for 30 minutes afterward. The tag says "Evading the law? Need to spy on someone without having them recognize you? Change your look with this mug and its contents. Hand washing recommended."  I am fairly certain my dad has needed to evade the law a time or two, and he probably likes to spy on people also. That's probably where I get it from.

 Then I went to the Dollar Tree and bought things like hillbilly/thug teeth, a Sheriff badge, sunglasses, and glasses with eyes in them.
On the bottom I signed my love.
Takes the term "mug shot" to a whole new level, doesn't it?


  1. He's right-handed right? I've had some great right-handed gifts, but the problem is I'm left handed. Sometimes they don't work.

    Very, very clever nonetheless. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and I look forward to more of your adventures in the New Year.

  2. Dear Lefty,
    Yes, my dad's right handed, but the placement of the 'stache was definitely something I considered. It's a good thing I didn't make one for my brother-in-law, because I discovered on Christmas Day that he's a lefty. Though when nbrown and I made the mugs, some of them had mustaches on both sides. Then everybody's happy. Thanks for reading.
