Chalkboard Coffee Mugs-- Great Idea for Teacher Gifts!

I made these chalkboard coffee mugs for prizes for my best friend's bridal shower.  They were simple to make and they went along with the chalkboard theme that I was doing.  They were quick and easy to make, the most time consuming part was letting them dry completely.  I used chalkboard paint for glass that I found in a craft store and painted regular mugs from the dollar store. When they were done, we used a chalk marker to write "Allie's Bridal Shower" and the date on it (it will easily wash off), and we filled them with flavored teas, coffee, hot chocolate, and apple cider. They were put in a gift bag along with a package of biscotti from Trader Joe's. 
These mugs would make cute gifts for the holiday's, especially for teachers. You could fill them with hot beverage mixes like I did or fill them with candy in a pretty holiday cellophane bag. I will definitely be making more next month for my son's teachers.
