How to Make Your Own Personalized Coffee Mugs12/18/2012
And I'm inclined to agree. It was just that easy and loads of fun, and way cheaper than going to our local pottery studio and doing basically the same thing, but having to pay three times as much for the mug plus extra for the baking. Let's not forget the week wait to get it back.
Our first mug was for L's teacher. We purchased a basic white mug at Dollar Tree for, you guessed it, a dollar. We also used a variety pack of Sharpie regulars, which came in 10 colors, and were about $7.49 at Target.
I laid everything down on an old towel and let her go to town, all while sitting back enjoying her excitement and creativity.
P.S. Don't put these babies in the dishwasher. We made that mistake, and despite using permanent markers and baking them on, every last thing L drew on my mug washed off. If you're giving these as gifts, add a gift tag that says "hand wash only" on them. Your little artist and giftee will be glad you did.
