Paint Dad a Beer Pilsner for Father’s Day

 

Paint a beer mug for dad

Whip up a DIY gift for day with Beer Pilsners from Cost Plus World Market and Folk Art Enamel Glass Paint.  A pair of pilsners will cost under 16 bucks with all the supplies needed!  Be sure to wipe the glass with rubbing alcohol before painting to get a good seal.  The glass can be cured in an over or cured by air dry (that takes longer)…all the instructions for curing are on the bottle of enamel paint.
