Dishwasher Safe Ceramic Best Friend Mugs! So easy to MAKE yourself!
So my best friend moved from Maryland to Alabama a year or so ago. We still chat on the phone and plan visits for the holidays, so I of course had to come up with something clever to give her for Christmas. What better way to start out her day than with an I miss you bestie mug?
|Alabama and Maryland Love <3|
I made these for pretty cheap and they came out pretty decent for a first attempt.
The pens need to be oil based to cure properly to the mugs.
Here is what I did:
Step One: printed out map outlines of Alabama and Maryland
Step Two: Used pencil to darkly cover the back side of the design I needed
Step Three: trace outlines with pencil createing a graphic stencil on the mugs
Step Four: Use paint pens to go over graphite outline.
|On the back of each mug it says Miss you|
DO THIS BEFORE YOU PRE-HEAT THE OVEN
You want the mugs to heat up with the oven and cool down with the oven.
Step Six: Pre- heat the oven to 350 Degrees F.
Step Seven: Allow mugs to bake for twenty minutes.
Step Eight: Keep the mugs in the oven while it cools down to room temperature.
Once the oven is cooled down the mugs should be cool to the touch as well.
|I added the Miss you to the back of each mug to remind her how much we miss her back home!|
|We grew up in Cumberland so I added a little heart over her hometown too :)|
|Shes now in Tuscaloosa So I put a little heart where it would be on the map :)|
|This would be Cozmo her adorable little Fur baby that she brought from back home with her. He is such a cutie I had to share a picture of him :D|
