This is a fun and easy homemade project that can serve as a gift to a Bride and Groom on their wedding day, brought to an engagement party, or even a bachelor/bachelorette party! This is the second time I have tested out this project (with different designs) so I’d like to think that I have now perfected it…but there’s always tweaks and tricks that I like to add. So here are the simple steps to make this cute couple’s tea or coffee mugs!
Difficulty Level: Easy
Supplies: Painter’s Pen Black (Walmart-$1.97), Painter’s Pen Red (Walmart-$1.97), Two White Mugs (Dollar Tree-$1.00 each)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2. Practice design on paper before applying to mug
3. Create design on mugs (using sample picture) with Painter’s Pens
4. Let them dry and place on a baking sheet in preheated oven for 30 minutes
5. When 30 minutes is up turn off the oven but do not remove mugs (to prevent cracking); Leave mugs in oven until cool
Tips: When drawing on mugs with painter’s pens create full design and perfect while ink is wet. I got very frustrated with these pens toward the end because I created the design on both and later went back to perfect the lines while the ink was dry which caused a difference in textures and pieces from the dry ink to move around. Do not put crafted mugs in dishwasher. If this design (Mr. Right and Mrs. Always Right) does not suit you, I have also posted a picture of the crafted mugs I did the first time below!
