Have an old cup/mug that could use a little love? How about decorating it for LESSology Challenge #60: Mug Shot? Let's see what design team member Yvonne Yam came up with...

I really wanted to make something from a sturdy beer can I kept in my stash....and finally got to use!


Here is my beer can turned beer "mug" for my paintbrushes. :)


I started with this can and used a can opener to remove the top.


Then I adhered some chipboard and old lace fabric.


I found an old shop strap that I adhered to create the "handle" for the beer mug. 


After that, I spray painted the whole thing with silver paint.


And finished by adding embellishments.


Now I have a pretty beer "mug" for my paint brushes. :)

You know..I have a taller version of what I used for my project and I was trying to figure out how I could put a handle on it! Brilliant! Paintbrush cup is beautiful! A work of art to store your tools for making more works of art....awesome!
