Design Coffee Mugs

By chance I discovered these design mugs last week when I paid a visit to one of my favourite blogs A Beautiful Mess. They featured them on their monthly wishlist and I thought to myself that the mugs would be a quick and easy DIY and a potential gift for later. I really liked the clean style, reminding me of 70’s tableware (but without the weird colours). So I thought of some designs I could use and went for two of them.

You need:

  • white mugs
  • porcelain pen

Think of some designs you might want to paint on your mugs. Or you take one of these.

Mugs-1

Draw your favourite design onto the mug. Pay attention to not smudging the lines with your hand.

Mugs-2

Bake the mug in the oven as prescribed on the porcelain pen (for me it was 160°C for 90 minutes).

That’s it! The actual work took about 15 minutes, so this could really be a last minute present.
