As of recently, I acquired the taste for coffee and tea. (I know right – a little late, but better late than never?) I’m still in the process of learning what all of this coffee lingo means, but I’m thoroughly enjoying the experience of trying all of these delicious beverages! It didn’t take long before I realized this tasty treat comes with a hefty price tag. After investing in my own Keurig Coffee Maker in an attempt to save on trips to Scooter’s, I was missing one more thing – some stylishly sippable mugs, of course. Plain just wouldn’t cut it.
This DIY mug makes a simple and affordable gift for the coffee and tea lovers in your life.
What you’ll need:
- Oven safe mug
- Ceramic paint, paint pen, or sharpie
- Painter’s tape (optional)
Draw or paint the design on your mug. I loved the finish of this ceramic paint pen. Ceramic paint or sharpies work as well. Using painter’s tape helped me achieve the geometric look with crisp straight lines. I’m also not skilled at drawing free hand, so this was a safe alternative. :)
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. You’ll also want to double check the instructions on whichever medium you choose.
