DIY Mexican Mug Gift


Happy HUMP day! I seriously could not wait to share this post with you because I just knew you would all LOVE it! Did I mention these make the best gifts to give anyone?! You can customize them to match a certain persons personality in no time. Let's get started!
With these Painted by Me mugs I used the new Painted by me Markers. Yes the two go together. The good news is these are food safe.  It's surely a great project to do with a group of friends or with your kids. Just think you can have your kids make one each year and collect them!

You will need:
Painted by me Mugs
It's hard to see in the picture but these mugs have the most unique shapes. I also love the variety of colors available in the paint pens. 

When you open your pen the tip will be white. You must shake it well and press the tip onto a piece of paper until the paint starts to make it's way down. 
I thought long and hard about what I wanted to paint on my mugs. I narrowed it down to bright Mexican inspired mugs. 

The first thing I did was get the black marker and draw the outline of my designs. This will also make it nice to fill in with color. 
This is another design I started. I know the lines look shaky however once I was completely done filling in with color I went back over the black lines. I seriously love the way anything looks with bold black lines around it. 
Look how awesome these mugs shapes are! 
As you can see this is the same mug as above. I let the lines dry first before adding these designs inside of them. 
Now comes the fun part! There is something so fulfilling about adding the color, haha!
I just love how they look when the color is added! 
Like I said earlier. These make GREAT gifts for any occasion or to just say "I love you".... 

Don't forget Painted by Me is permanent and food safe. The best part is you can bake these at home safely to cure the paint!

I did something like this at a place called Color Me Mine and I made a small soup bowl. At another place I made a dinner plate and a sandwich plate. Will they be doing anything like this or just mugs? We don't need anymore mugs.
