This fun little DIY Hand Painted Mug Makeover Idea is a great way to customize Dollar Store Mugs just by using Glass Paint Markers.
Today I am back with a quick little DIY Project with these beautiful DIY Hand Painted Mugs.
I did a little painted mug craft a few months back which was my Floral Mug Makeover in case you guys want to see that but today I will show you guys how I created these colored vines on some plain simple mugs.
I’m guessing I bought these from Ikea a while but you can use any mug even from the Dollar store would work for this project.
Material Needed for DIY Hand Painted Mug
DecoArt Glass Paint Markers (I used colors Violet, Fuchsia and Orange)
Tutorial for DIY Hand Painted Mug
What makes this project so simple and quick is using Glass Paint Markers.
I only chose three colors from the above six glass paint markers. But you can of course use all if you have a detailed pattern.
I went with a straightforward design which was to free hand paint the “Vine” design on to the Mug.
I roughly measured how many would fit on the mug as you do not want unequal gaps in between and then I started drawing it.
Start with drawing a curved line till the bottom of the mug. Make it as wavy or less curvy as you like.
After that start drawing the leaves onto the curved line.
Don’t worry if you mess up the design as you can easily wipe it off and re draw again.
Keep drawing the leaves until you reach the bottom of the Mug.
Play around with the colors as you move along.
I alternated between the three main colors that I chose.
I also switched around the leaves as some were facing upwards and some were facing downwards.
I even drew a vine on the handle of the mug. Which gave it such a nice little touch.
Let the design air cure for roughly 8 hours but if you want a dishwasher safe finish let it bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 325F.
And this is what you should end up with.
How adorable did these Mugs turn out.
You can always play around with the colors and the pattern and make it into something you love!
The ideas are endless just be sure to use oven proof mugs if you end up baking it.
What a perfect little customized gift as well for the holidays.
What do you guys think?
I always love to use bright and cheery colors, which colors would you guys choose if you were to recreate this project?
