DIY Print Mug

Posted on March 12 2015

Coffee anyone? Or a cup of hot tea maybe? Whatever your drink, don't drink it out of a boring old mug that you bought 10 years ago - it's time to add a bit of fab. You can personalize these as much as you want - you can draw a little drawing, write on your favorite quote or lyric, do a fancy typography job... the possibilities are endless! These are an amazing gift idea for any coffee/tea lover and they're so inexpensive! So go and get creative and start designing your new favorite mug. IMG_5677

WHAT YOU'LL NEED - Plain Mug - Paint Pen - Oven

 
Pick out a design you want to put on your mug. Like I said, this could be anything! Don't underestimate your creativity and think out of the box! Once you've finalized your design, you can go right ahead and start drawing with your paint pen. If your design involves covering a large area with color, consider using spray paint.
IMG_5680 IMG_5681Here's where you can think outside of the box (or inside of the mug in this case!). Think of a design that you can apply to the inside or even at the bottom of the mug. The possibilities are endless!

Let the paint dry completely. This will take about an hour or two.
Once you've waited at least and hour, throw your mug into the oven (not literally of course) and bake it for 10 minutes at 350°F.
When 10 minutes is up, take the mug out of the oven, let it cool completely and rinse it with water.

When you've dried it, you've just made your very own printed mug. I think you're allowed to celebrate with some wine in your new mug?
