This is a project that I did before Christmas and didn’t get it posted in time, however it’s perfect for Winter too, so here you go! This is a fun one for adding a little interest to a plain mug… or a set of mugs, like I did here. You may have some of these in your kitchen cabinet already, but if not they are pretty easy to find in most thrift shops.
Once again I used the Martha Stewart Adhesive Silkscreens from Plaid. I used snowflakes, but you can use whatever design you like.
1) Plain white Mug or Mugs.
2)Martha Stewart Adhesive Silkscreen from Plaid
4)Martha Stewart Glass Paint – Gloss Opaque ( Color – Pool)
I picked up 4 matching white mugs at Goodwill. They were .45 cents each. Cheap! Yay!
Step 1: Apply the Adhesive Silkscreen to a clean mug. (The instructions suggest that you wash the mug and then give it a wipe with some rubbing alcohol before painting, so that’s what I did.)
Step 2: Using a foam pouncer, apply the paint over the silkscreen, and lift off the silkscreen as soon as you are done.
Um.. that’s pretty much it!! It could not be easier right?!! Just let it air cure for 21 days, or if you’re in hurry you can bake it in your oven, according to the instructions HERE.
Now I have a set of fun and cheerful mugs, ready and waiting for some Hot Chocolate! This would make a cute gift too, and so easy that the kids could help make them for a favorite relative or teacher.You can even wash them in your dishwasher on the top rack!
