I can’t deny that I’m a self confessed tea addict, by midday I’m already settling into my third or fourth cup and you and me both know that there’s nothing better than enjoying tea or coffee from a beautiful mug am I right?! Ok well maybe enjoying tea or coffee from a beautiful mug with donuts and biscuits is slightly better but what can you do?! These mugs are super easy to make and would be the perfect gift for newly weds or you could even make them yourself for you and your other half! Here’s how to create your own:
YOU WILL NEED:
Plain white mugs (we got ours for 90p each from Sainsbury’s) // Gold spray paint (We used rustoleum) // Masking tape // Newspaper // A Cricut Explore and Gold Vinyl* // Wifey template PDF or JPEG // Hubby template PDF or JPEG //
*Please note: We’re using the Cricut Explore to cut out the wifey and hubby templates out of gold vinyl, if you don’t have a Cricut machine then you could try adhering some gold stickers with some sort of strong glue but we have no idea how well that would work or how long the stickers would remain on the mugs so we really recommend using the gold vinyl!
Using your masking tape, create a geometric shape on the bottom half of the mug and cover the rest of the mug up with your newspaper to keep it protected from the spray paint.
Spray paint the bottom part of your mug gold, allow to dry and then repeat with a second coat.
