You can never have enough coffee mugs! #amiright?!
This SUPER easy project would be perfect for a housewarming gift, wedding shower gift (Bride’s initial on one mug, ampersand on one mug and Groom’s initial on one mug – would be so cute!), or to keep for yourself (that’s what I’m doing)!
What you’ll need:
- A plain white ceramic mug (you can get one at any dollar store for cheap cheap cheap)
- Letter or symbol printed out from your computer on regular computer paper
- An X-acto blade
- Double stick tape, or temporary spray adhesive
- Paint Pen
I started by cutting out my “C” with the X-acto blade, and spraying the back with temporary spray adhesive. I let it dry for a few minutes before I put it on the mug, so it wouldn’t be too sticky. I wanted it just sticky enough to hold the letter on the mug temporarily.
Then I put the “C” on the mug. I made sure the letter was centered.
Then all I did was put little dots all around the “C” with my paint pen. I made them more condensed around the letter and gradually spaced them out as I got further away. This looks and sounds like it would take a long time – but honestly, it took like 3 minutes, maximum. When I was done with my paint pen I removed the paper “C”.
I put it in the oven and baked it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes to set the paint.
