I cannot emphasize how EASY this craft is! We created a few different crafts for Father’s Day that you can check out in our Father’s Day Gifts Crafts post. However, this was the one my son had the most fun with and it turned out super cute! The possibilities are endless with what designs you could do. There are tons of gift mug tutorials on Pinterest but this is our take on a Father’s Day
version that’s easy enough that my two year old could handle.
White Ceramic Mug ( which you can buy inexpensive at Wal-Mart or Target )
Painters Pens I got mine at Wal-Mart but any craft store would also carry them
We tested out different types of markers for this gift to see which held up the best, Paint Markers were the best out of everything we tested.
First wash out your ceramic mug. After it’s dry, apply the stickers you want to use to create your design. Let your child start drawing. After your child’s done with their drawing peel off the stickers to reveal the design. Put your mug in the oven and bake at 350 for 30 mins.
Note: As for washing I’ve only hand washed this and the design has kept up perfect. Also after baking the colors will darken a little so keep that in mind when choosing your colors for the mug!
