Christmas Tutorial Surprise – Mustache Mug

This is part two of a four-part tutorial set of the Christmas Surprise I mentioned in the Weekly Photo Challenge post here. In each of the parts I will show you how I made all of these fun things:

  1. Mustache Wrapping Paper
  2. Ombre Bleach Tee
  3. Mustache Mug
  4. Merry Christmas Gift Bag

Now for the Mustache Mug!

Christmas Tutorial Surprise

~~~ Ingredients ~~~

  • Black Sharpie
  • Cool Porcelain Mug (mine was from Anthropologie because I wanted the K on it)
  • Oven (preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit)

~~~ Instructions ~~~

1. Grab your mug!

2. Then figure out where you want to doodle, making sure that it isn’t a place you would put your mouth. (The Sharpie may come off and you wouldn’t want to drink/eat that. Bleh!) I chose the bottom of the mug to give that magnificent mustached face effect. Doodle your creation on the mug. Mine was freehand so sorry, no pattern.

3. Hopefully, your oven is ready. Mine wasn’t.

When it is finally at 350 degrees, place your mug in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. I placed mine directly on the rack. After it is finished baking, carefully remove the mug from the oven and allow to cool. It will be extremely hot! BE CAREFUL! Burns hurt. Trust me. My fingers have felt the power of the burn more than once.

4. Admire your lovely cooled off creation!
