They know they will get some awesome conversations while we walk back and forth to school, and they also know that they will get offered a steaming mug of coffee to fend off the cold when we return from our walk. Keurig and Lindor 5To celebrate the changing of the seasons, I wanted to make myself a cute little coffee bar that had everything at  the ready for our guests to help themselves to the perfect mug of coffee throughout winter. All it took was a trip to Sam’s Club and I loaded up on everything I needed – Starbucks® Holiday Blend 60ct K-Cup® pods, Lindt Chocolate Assorted Lindor Truffle Bag 19 oz., and some fancy mugs to do a little glass etching monogram DIY.

The Starbucks® Holiday Blend was already on my Sam’s Club shopping list, but then I ran across the Lindt Chocolate Assorted Lindor Truffle Bag in the 19 ounce size and decided to give it a shot. After one taste I can tell you that the sweet, rich flavor of the Lindor Truffles are arguably one of the best ways to complement the sweet maple notes of the Holiday Blend coffee. Keurig and Lindor 4So, now that I have the perfect pairing, I needed the perfect glass mugs to go with it. I’ve loved etched glass mugs forever and was always planning on getting myself a set, but I’ve never actually found one with an H on it. So, of course, I decided to make my own… all without a Cricut or Silhouette! Here’s all you need to get a super simple monogram mug in less than 20 minutes. Glass etching1) Find some letter stickers {we got ours at an office supply store back in my corporate days, but these letters are still readily available at many hardware stores, office stores, and department stores} and cut out a square around the letter of your choice. Glass etching 22) Peel just the outline of the letter you chose, leaving the actual letter on the sheet to use at a different time. Glass etching 33) Place on mug in desired location.

4) Apply a liberal amount of glass etching cream to the interior of your stencil. Our glass etching cream is a few years old so it’s discolored some, but that shouldn’t affect the functionality at all. Glass etching 45) Wait 15 minutes and then remove letter stencil. Rinse off cream and wash. You are now ready to use your newly etched DIY glass monogram glasses!
