Easy Customised Mugs for Valentine’s Day | Real Life Crafting

 

I’ve been pinning ideas for customising mugs for a while, but have yet to try out the Sharpie and porcelain pen baking tutorials. There are some things I just can’t seem to find the time for.

As I was brainstorming ideas one day, I started wondering if rub-ons would work on china and porcelain. And I’m happy to report that they do.

This is an easy and fast DIY, plus it’s cheap, if like me you have a huge stash of rub-ons from hoarding them back when they were the hot item in scrapbooking.

You’ll need your mug, some Valentine or love themed rub-ons and a rub-on applicator. I have a fancy one because I was also a confirmed tool junkie back in the day. But a popsicle stick works just as well.

First cut out your design and use your fingers to carefully position and smooth it on the mug

Next using your applicator carefully rub all over the design, making sure to hit all the areas of the design. I don’t have a photographer’s assistant, so no photo of the rubbing action, sorry!

Ta da!

Now make some more and use them to serve hot chocolate, tea or coffee to your loved ones come Friday morning.

The designs will be temporary, but if you’re mercurial like me that’s a good thing! You can use different designs for all your special, and everyday occasions.

Simple. Easy. Done.
