DIY Mug Easy and Simple

DIY Mug Easy and Simple to do. Makes the perfect gift.

I saw these mugs with the ‘I love green tea, he loves strong coffee’ design and instantly fell in love. But instead of buying them I decided to try making them myself.

Here’s how I did it:

  1. Purchase some plain white mugs I used these ones
  2. Choose your permanent marker I used this dishwasher safe one
  3. Practice your design on a piece of paper, such as the design above, your favourite quote or a cute polka dot design.
  4. Draw the design onto the cup and let the ink dry overnight.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 180c, it’s important to place in the oven before it heats up in order to prevent cracking
  6. Let the oven cool down completely before removing the mug
  7. If you used a non dishwasher friendly marker draw over your design and re-bake as above
  8. If you used a none dishwasher friendly marker wash gently by hand after use.

You can get creative with the design and colours.

Here are some other designs I want to try…
