Mug Graffiti

Being on a mission to save my pennies (I’m determined to get my act together this year and go travelling!) I thought I would have ago at up cycling and getting creative. Turning old things into new! I will say up front that I like to think I’m creative but don’t always manage to pull it off! However on the odd occasion I do manage to make something look half decent, I am going to post a how to guide on here.....

So for my first attempt at being a bit arty I decided to Graffiti some Mugs. I’ve seen this a lot on Pinterest and thought I would give it a go!
Items Needed....
1.       Plain white mug

2.       Sharpie Pen
What to do.....
1.    Using your sharpie, draw whatever design that takes your fancy onto the mug.

2.    Place the mug into the oven for 30 mins at 150c

TaaDaa!!! A fancy new mug! Check my first attempt out......

I drew a tea bag for this one, but think for the rest of the set I am going to write different quotes about Tea and Coffee onto them. I will make sure I add a photo on here when I’ve done it.
I’ve also popped this mug into the dishwasher since drawing on it and it stayed on! Very impressed and pleased with this as it’s such a simple way to update a plain boring white mug!
