Your morning (or afternoon) coffee gets an artistic upgrade courtesy of your creativity and some Sharpies. Add sweet or sarcastic messages, or create fun patterns to liven up your plain old mug.
2. Create spin art
Spin art is a unique technique which makes use of a canvas and a rapidly spinning machine to help you create extremely colorful, psychedelic designs.
3. Make some nail art
