Hi there, friends! This house is full of crafting at this time and I wanted to share a quick and easy idea for the loved ones in your life. Personalized mugs are an obvious choice in this house because we are serious coffee drinkers. And a good mug is never a bad idea. For my first round of gifts, I’m working on some handwritten white mugs. All you need is a mug (I got some great ones from the dollar store!) and a paint pen. Make sure the mugs are clean and dry and then bake them in a low oven for a bit to set the paint.
Another great option is to get a ceramic tube of paint and create art! I let my daughter draw on the mugs with a sharpie and then I traced her writing with the ceramic paint, baked them, and let them dry! (Hello, grandparent gifts!)
This idea has been floating around the internet for quite awhile and I definitely would suggest googling “Sharpie Mug DIY” for some research! There is a cute tutorial on A Beautiful Mess and a ton of helpful tips on DIYopolis.
What about you? Do you have some crafting going already? Send us some ideas in the links!
