DIY Yarn coffee cup inspiration

It's back to school time, both for myself and my oldest son ( he just got into GATE this year and I am so proud!) and in my house this means COFFEE! I was given one of these diy coffee cups and At first I though ooo I could scrapbook something awesome.... But then I though what if I crocheted something?? The cup I have smashed the lace I made with this 2 ply yarn. However I think thread would fit perfectly!!!!

SO here is a project anyone even children can do!!

less than one ball of Yarn 3 ply or 2 ply
I used Scarps of Vanna's Glamour left over from this pattern (Oh my CHIQ stars scarf )
customizable coffee cup

Step 1
unscrew the cup

Step 2
Starting at the bottom wrap yarn around the cup.
Try to wrap closely so there are not hug black gaps, try not to over lap too much so it it not thick.
To help it from unraveling when you first start with a 6 inch tail and wrap over it as you go.

Step 3
When you reach the top tuck your tail in and screw the cup back together.

* Have fun with this! Use different types of yarn in the same cup or crochet something in thread! I would love to see anyone's finished cup!

oooo And I found these cups at
99 cent store

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them

 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
