Rock Climbing Hold Mug DIY

After seeing a picture of a crimp hold mug online I decided to make my own! Heres a few steps on how I put it together. I decided to make two mugs for my boyfriend, Brandon since he climbs.

You need a mug, hammer, rounded file, loctite epoxy putty, and rock climbing crimps/holds {I found mine on Amazon for pretty cheap!} 

Knock the handle off your mug, this should just take one or two hits because most mugs are made from two seperate pieces

 File down your mug and the climbing hold, forming it more to the shape of the mug

Follow the directions on the epoxy putty package to prepare it, then apply to mug and climbing hold. 

Pour in some coffee or tea and enjoy:)

This project is so easy to make a set of, I ended up making two because I ran out of putty. If you are looking to make a set of four you may need more epoxy putty!

I hope you are having a great Saturday, I ran my second 5K this morning and I’m feelin good!
