Father's Day Gift: Mustache Mug

Looking for that perfect gift for the dad's in your life? This is sure to bring a smile to their faces come Father's Day.
For this project, I bought inexpensive beer mugs (mine are from IKEA) and using glass paint added a fun feature. Once stuffed with a favorite treat, this mug is a gift any dad would appreciate.
1. Thoroughly clean your glass.
2. Make a mustache template out of Contact paper.
3. Adhere the template to the glass. You will want to make sure to position it so that it looks as if the drinker has a mustache. I went a few inches down from the lip of the glass. I also made sure to make it on the correct side. (For this you will have to think about whether the recipient is right or left handed.) Also make sure to rub around the  edges of the Contact paper. This will ensure that no paint leaks through.
4. Apply the paint following directions on the bottle. I found my paint at Hobby Lobby by the other acrylic paints. Just make sure that the paint is for glass. After applying several coats and allowing them to dry, I peeled off my Contact paper. My directions had me put the glass into the oven and bake at a certain tempertature for a set amount of time.
5. Stuff with a fun treat, or present with a favorite beverage!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a superb job
with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast
for me on Safari. Superb Blog!

I seldom leave remarks, however after reading through a few
of the remarks on "Father's Day Gift: Mustache Mug".
I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or do some of the comments appear as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I'd like to
follow you. Could you list of all of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
or linkedin profile?
