I made these GROW coffee cups a while ago. They have been sitting on my kitchen window sill every day for several months. I loved them so much that when I was asked to do a repurposing workshop at the Habitat for Humanity, these stenciled repurposed coffee cups were one of the projects that I brought with me to share.
While I was at Habitat for Humanity, I found four white coffee mugs for 99 cents apiece. They were perfect for the workshop. This time, as people stopped by my booth I spelled out LOVE in red. There were so many people who didn’t realize how inexpensive and easy it was to make them. So many people loved them. It was fantastic.
I brought all the supplies with me and demonstrated how to make them several times. I also brought some succulents to plant in them. A few people were hands on and helped as well. The kids especially liked volunteering to pour in the potting soil.

Here are a few more pictures.
I thought these would make great gifts as a set or even individually with the recipient’s initials. You can give them to teachers, couches, friends, and neighbors. It’s even a fun and simple thing to do with a group of friends for a craft night.
In case you missed it, check out my experience at the Habitat for Humanity workshop. It was so much fun. I hope you consider making these for a friend. If you do, send me a picture!
