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 back but you any, even from the Dollar store would work.
Material Needed for this Project
DecoArt Glass Paint Markers (I used colors Violet, Fuchsia and Orange)
I only chose three colors from the above six glass paint markers.
From here on you hand paint the “Vine” design on to the Mug.
I roughly measured how many would fit on the mug and then started drawing freehand.
Start with drawing a curved line till the bottom of the mug and add on the leaves.
Don’t worry if you mess up the design as these markers are easy to wipe off.
I alternated between the leaves facing upwards and downwards.
Play around with the colors as you move along.
And this is what you should end up with.
I even drew a vine on the handle of the mug.
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 there you have it.
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 tend to bake it.
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?
