DIY mug

I’m very happy that my mother in law is visiting us. One of my favorite moments with her is our conversations over coffee and breakfast. So, today, I’m sharing how I did a special mug for her in less than 1 hour following this tutorial.

First, I decided on the design and wrote it with a pencil over a blank mug.

With a black Sharpie, I wrote the phrase that I chose. Since she’s such a Beatles fan, I went with one of those well-known chorus…

When I had the design done, I pre-heat the oven at 350F and “bake” the mug for 30 minutes.

After it cooled down, I washed it to check that the experiment had effectively worked.

All you need is love and more coffee.

This project was so easy and cool that I think I’ll be “baking” some more mugs for Christmas presents!

Let me know if you try this. I’d love to know what design or phrases you choose!
