A lot of people have been asking me to post some creative gift ideas on the blog, so this month I’m dedicating my posts to gifts! My first creative gift is simple, but creative, and it makes a great gift for anyone!
Everyone drinks hot beverages of some sort, so why not make them a one of a kind mug!
1. Draw your design onto your mug using pencil first, that way you can figure out the design before you make it permanent (I chose to make a personalized mug for my other half – we call each other “BT” , hence the big BT)!
2. Trace over your design in permanent marker!
3. Bake your mug in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees (this will make your design permanent).
If you prefer, you can use acrylic paint to create your design and bake it the same way to make it permanent! To keep the design safe, don’t put your mug in the dishwasher, it may wash off. Make sure you hand-wash your mug when you are finished.
Design several mugs for a cute collection of DIY glassware! You can use these same steps on any type of ceramic dinnerware!
Hope you enjoyed! A new gift idea will be up next week so stay tuned!
