Hey Hey! I’ve been in a crafting frenzy because, Christmas. I LOVE me some Christmas!! Duh, right?! Well I decided to stencil some mugs as a gift for my son’s teacher and I’m going to share how I did it with y’all today.
Last week I shared the Winter Survival Kit for his teacher that I made. I added these stenciled mugs to that gift so she would have something special to drink her hot chocolate from.
Stenciled Mugs – What you will need:
Gold Sharpie Paint Pen
An oven to bake the stenciled mugs in
I bought two black mugs from the Dollar Store for $1 each. I had a Gold Sharpie Paint Pen on hand already from a few previous projects but you can buy one at the hardware or craft store for around $3. I also had the stencil on hand for a project I never got around to. Ahem. Story of my life.
The stencils are sticky on the back so you can use them over and over and they stay in place without leaving a residue behind. I just positioned the stencil the way I wanted it, eyeballing how straight it was. Then I used the paint pen to fill in the stencil.
After you are finished your stenciled mug you preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake your mugs for 30 minutes so that the paint sets and doesn’t come off so easily. Turn the oven off and let the mugs cool inside the oven. Once removed, I would not run these through the dishwasher, but instead hand wash them.
