I love a good nerdy craft project. I will admit that Chemistry definitely wasn’t my forte in highschool and college (let’s just say that I definitely wasn’t going to become a Chemical Engineer). I’ve seen the different words spelled out with periodic table elements and decided that it would be fun to see what I could create with some awesome heavy duty beer steins that I had in my crafting stash.
I found an image of the periodic table and traced the elements that I needed in order to spell “BEER”. I somewhat underestimated how small some of the little items were inside the letters and numbers. I HIGHLY recommend using a CB09 blade (I first used this blade to make some awesome, and delicate, Star Wars mugs).
I pretty much exclusively use Orcal 651 vinyl (or the permanent outdoor from Expressions Vinyl) because I want everything to be as durable as possible. Technically, this beer stein isn’t dishwasher safe; however, I’ve had no problem running my items through the dishwasher (I did finally have to dispose of my Starbucks Tumbler, but that was because the mug itself cracked).
This mug would be a great gift (especially if paired with some actual beer). Do you have anybody on your gift list who would love to receive their own periodic table beer stein?

This is such a cute idea! Love it!
I did alright in chemistry but I deinitely got lucky with my lab partners. Thanks for sharing on Family Joy Blog Link-up. Please come back and join us again!

Great idea! I recently bought my first Cricut machine and I am adding vinyl to EVERYTHING! Thanks for sharing.

That’s awesome…hubby would love it. Chemistry wasn’t my forte either. It was the only class I ever flunked, all because I could never remember the elements on the periodic table! Who would’ve thought that I might need that info someday…it comes up sometimes at trivia…LOL!
Thanks for sharing with us at Share The Wealth Sunday. I hope we see you again tonight!
What a fun gift idea. Pinning now. Thanks for sharing at the #ThisIsHowWeRoll Link Party.

So cool! The only beer I drink is Dos Equis but I would gladly drink any beer with this!! Thanks for sharing with Saucy Saturdays!
Very cool idea!
This is super cool, and would also be neat (and dishwasher safe) if you used that vinyl as a stencil for glass etching.
