[homelife] DIY Coffee Mugs

Happy Wednesday to you!

I wanted to share with you all some DIY coffee mugs I made recently a long time ago. I actually bought the white mugs back in November, but finally got around to making them in February… sometimes I take my dear sweet time with crafting.



1. buy white mugs

2. create a design on paper (practice before making design on mug)

3. create design on mugs using sharpies (be careful and go slow)

4. let them dry and stick into oven at 350 degrees for 30 mins (on a baking sheet)

5. hand wash (only!)
