DIY FATHER'S DAY GIFT

June 11, 2013

Father's day is coming up and I thought I would do something different this year. I really enjoy doing DIY's, so I decided to make a personalised mug! It's really easy to make and I know my dad will like it. It's just a fun little gift to show him that he's appreciated. I hope you enjoy this DIY!


What will you need:

Mug ( I got mine at Ikea)// Sharpie


First, I would recommend to make a design of what you want to put on the mug. I found that it was easier to have a bit of guideline to help you space it out.


Then it's time to put the design on your mug! Just be careful not to smudge the letters (I'm left handed so that's usually a problem..).

Then to make sure your design stay on the mug, bake it in the oven for 30 mintues on 175°C. It's not 100% gurantee that it will stay on, but I found that it holds up quite well if you only hand wash the mug.


And that's it! All there's left to do now is wrap it up and surprise your dad on father's day!

What do you think of this DIY?
