How to Tell Time with a Wine Glass Coffee Mug
Do you have a favorite wine glass coffee mug? If so, why not turn it into a clock? Whether for fun or for increased productivity, it’s surprisingly easy to make use of your mug to keep track of the time. Here’s how:
Step 1: Mark the Hour
Using a permanent marker, make an hour line along the circumference of your mug. Follow the curvature of the cup to mark 12 points, one for every hour.
Step 2: Shade the Hour Section
Gently shade the hour section where the hour line intersects the surface of the mug. This will help you easily identify the 12 hour sections.
Step 3: Mark the Minutes
Take a ruler and divide the hour section into 5 equal parts to account for the minutes.
Step 4: Shade the Minutes
Once again, gently shade along the surface of the mug where the minutes sections line up with the hour sections. This will help you keep track of when the minutes have changed.
Step 5: Decorate and Personalize
This is the fun part. Decorate your mug with your own designs to give it a personal touch. Color in the boundaries of the hour and minute sections or add your own marks.
Tips for Using Your Mug Clock:
- Pay Attention: Looking at the clock can’t help you much if you don’t pay attention to it. Set alarms and reminders to keep you on schedule.
- Keep Track: Write down the times when you look at the mug clock in case you need to remember them later.
- Stay Positive: Use your mug clock to manage stress by focusing on productivity rather than stressing out over the time.
It may take some practice to get used to telling time with your mug, but soon you’ll be able to use your personal touch to keep time wherever you are. Have fun!
