DIY: customize a mug

So for my best friends birthday, one of the gifts I got her
are these mugs with my own doodles on it. I always
make a personal gift for someones birthday. This year I
decided to create this super easy DIY. All you need
is an ovenproof mug, markers and some creativity.
Bake it in the oven for 30 mins 175°C when you are done.
Don't wash the mugs in the dishwasher as it will wash the
markers away!

And what I like about this DIY is that you don't
need to have super talent for it, kiddish/cartoonish style are totally 
acceptable and it creates a real fun, quirky look!

 This year
is also a special year because me and my bestie are
buddies for over 10 years ^_^

You can use a pencil for extra guidelines. But if you messed up, don't panic. All you need is a scourer to rub it off. 

She likes goldfishes so I drew some for her!

 10 years of friendship c:

  5. Super schattig. Gaat dat permanent marker er niet af als je het wast? of in de vaatwasser zet?

  32. if the dishwasher takes the marker off wouldn't simply washing the cup by hand take it off too, eventually?

    1. I'm not so sure, but I think it will and its the best you use
      a soft sponge to wash it c: Xx
