Barbie Mugs from Toothpaste Lids -Recycling DIY

I have a quick, cute, recycling idea today folks. I washed a toothpaste lid, filled it with hot glue, worked the glue on top to give it a bit of a 'whipped cream' swirl or dollop... And wa-la! We have a mug for Barbie. Whether your doll likes fancy coffee or hot chocolate, this is a fun little craft for doll play and pictures. And the beauty of the swirl... You can keep hitting the glue with the tip of the hot glue gun to reshape it. I added a little brown and white acrylic paint to complete the look. 

I can't wait until I empty another tube of toothpaste so I can make another one😎

Tip: Turn the mug upside down while the glue is still hot
 to help the peak of the whipped cream stay up instead of flopping down.
Full disclosure: My mug is missing a handle, I'm still working on figuring that out...
If you have an idea, please leave it in the comments, thanks.

Another hot glue craft:

Make something just for fun and have a happy day😉
