Well, really, Xoxo is an American expression I believe. But I know xicara is not. It means cup - specifically coffee or tea cup.
I wanted a cute coffee cup to use as a small flower vase, but I didn't want to take one of the cups we actually use. Solution: go to the dollar store, buy a white cup, and paint it.
I first sanded down the cup to help the paint stay better. Then I picked/mixed the colors I wanted and used a sponge to apply (for texture). Finally, I wrote the Xoxo with a brush and voila. Now I really need some flowers for my sad and lonely vases.
Do you have any unusual uses for coffee cups? In what different ways do you use household staples?
