This DIY didn’t exactly go to plan. I planned to make a letter monogramed mug. But after not being able to find masking tape without taking out a bank loan, I decided that I would create something different instead.
Tea cups and mugs with faces are a bit of a thing at the minute. Most bloggers and their cats have this beautiful teacup. Which I adore but not at that price. So get your Sharpies out and get a bit creative. I’m suitably impressed with myself and I’m going to get hold of some more plain mugs and plates too and give them all a bit of a makeover.
And the best bit, these make the perfect Valentines gift, and cost so little. How about making a matching Mr and Mrs?
You will need: Plain white mug/teacup – Sharpies (Black and pink)
Make sure your mug is sparkly clean.
Practice your face a few times first., unless you’re really good! I drew my face out three or four times first. Just so I knew I’d get it right.
Draw your face onto the mug. I added eyelashes and cute pink cheeks. But the possibilities are endless.
Bake the mug for 30 minutes in a hot oven about 180º. Allow your mug to cool completely before washing or using.
Wrap in plently of tissue paper and find a box, wrap with ribbon and you’re all set for Valentines!
