With only a few days left to Christmas, I thought it was about time I did a DIY post that is personal as well as effective (did i meantion being super cheap!)
I did this hand written mug for a secret santa gift at work and the reaction was great.
All you need is 1 mug or glass, a few Sharpies or Porcelain pens and an oven.
I picked up this plain white China mug from Wilkinson’s for £2. Now I know the pens cost a bit more but you can use them over and over again!
Start by choosing your design, Pinterest is a great to use if you are stuck for ideas.
Wipe you mug with a dry cloth to remove any fibres and start drawing! I chose to use this person’s name and built up around out with lots of small dots. I added the date on the base of the cup for a little extra personal touch.
Once your design is ready then you just need to bake for 30 minutes at 180°C. This just seals the design in place and allows the mug to be washable.
If you are using a glass for your design, thry is no baking required!
Fill your cup with goodies – teas, coffees or hot chocolate mix, some nibbles and a pretty ribbon and that’s a lovely, handmade gift that people will appreciate.
