{diy bunny mug}

The one buck bunny mug.  (Say that 5 times fast)  

Remember when I was telling you how I was feeling all kinds of creative?  The Spring season just does it to me.  Well, I’m rubbing off on my kid.  Her creativity is flowin too!

She wanted to make something Eastery.  Something we can keep forever.  I like that about my girl.  Bay knows how crazy weird sentimental I am about Holidays.

I hit up my homie Google and gathered some ideas + supplies.

You guys, this is hands down the easiest and cheapest DIY to date.

Which translates…..perfect for kids.

Something fun for them to customize and make special.

  • White mug
  • Sharpie

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. About the white mug // Go to the Dollar Tree.  Trust me.  I looked at World Market + Target + Walmart….no go!  Don’t get me wrong, they all have GREAT white mugs.  Lot’s and lot’s of them.  The trick is, you need the bottom of the mug to be blank.  Dollar Tree is the ONLY place I’ve been able to find clean mug butts.  And they’re a buck, so grab 2!  Just in case you screw up and want to start over.
  2. Grab a NEW Sharpie // One with a fresh pointy tip.  Makes it so much easier.  Any color or color combo will do the trick.
  3. Practice first // Decide what you want to design on your cup.  Draw on a piece of scratch paper.  A quote.  Symbol.  Scroll down for some mug inspo.
  4. Get drawing // It’s harder than it looks.  I screwed up and had to start over.  But, I also didn’t follow step #3 and just went for it.
  5. Drying time // Once you’ve put the finishing touched on the mug, allow it to dry overnight.  If you decided to want to add to it or outline your design again to make it darker….remember you’ll need to let it dry overnight again.
  6. Bake it // Place mug in the oven.  Make sure to place it in a cool oven.  Then set the temperature to 350 degrees.  Once the oven is preheated, set the timer for 30 minutes.  Turn the oven off and allow the mug to cool completely before removing.  You don’t want a cracked or shattered mug in your oven.
  7. Mug care // Hand-wash gently.

 

 

The fun thing about this DIY is you can customize your mug anyway you’d like.

Here are some fun ideas I found…..

 

Okay the question of the day…..
