Wrap Mug Handles
Wrap each handle in your desired material; good choices are leather, fabric, metal mesh or wire. As you wrap, securely attach material with waterproof adhesive. Tip: If you are using fabric or leather, treat with waterproofing spray before attaching. If using wire, use solder as the adhesive and embellish with more solder for a welded look.
Personalize Mug Emblems
Embellish leather tags as desired with stains and lettering. Let dry, then apply waterproofing spray or sealer.
Attach leather tags to mugs with waterproof adhesive being careful not to apply adhesive to the tag's corners where any excess glue would be visible. Secure with rubber band while glue fully cures.
Cut 4" x 6" post into 3/4-inch-thick sections; stain and seal.
Once wood stain has fully dried, attach miniature license plates with carpet tacks and finish off with cork or felt pads on coasters' bottoms to prevent scratching.
Create Bar Tool Holder
Attach bottle opener to leather tool belt pocket using 1/2-inch screw post to create a unique, wall-mounted bar tool holder.
