Dollar Store Valentine's Day Gift

Do you need a quick and easy and cheap Valentines Day gift?  In fact this one is so cheap you could show a little love to your self and make one for you too!

Supplies Needed:
One travel coffee mug from the Dollar Store
One pair of fun socks
A heart embellishment- I bought a package at JoAnn's but you could easily make your own from felt scraps.

Step 1:
Cut your socks at the heel line.  It's nice to have the strip to help you cut straight.

And cut your socks at the toe line.

Slip the sock onto the cup and add your embellishments.

I told you it was quick, easy and cheap!  These would make a great gift for a teacher, or daycare person, your spouse, your grown daughters and yourself. You could do this for any holiday or just everyday! 

If this looks slightly familiar I shared how to make your own candle cozies here: DIY Candle Cozies.

Such a great idea and it definitely doesn't look like it's from the dollar store!

I'd be tickled if you'd link up at this week's Off the Hook!
