DIY Mug Gifts Using PaintedByMe Bake At Home Ceramics

With the biggest gift-giving season of the year right around the corner, I am excited to share ideas today for creating these one-of-a-kind, hand lettered, and heartfelt mug gifts. Not only are they adorable, they were super simple and so much fun to make. PaintedByMe Bake At Home Ceramics makes it incredibly easy and you’re left with a mug that is food, microwave and dishwasher safe!! How awesome.

PaintedByMe products are microwave, dishwasher, and food safe

I chose my mug and washed it to make sure the surface was clean and free of fingerprints. Using the black marker, I hand lettered “have a cup of cheer” on the mug.

DIY hand lettered mug how toProbably my favorite part about making these is that they are completely goof-proof! You just simply wipe the mug clean if you make a mistake. The design won’t be permanent until you bake it in the oven. I changed my design a couple times before I was satisfied with it.

DIY hand lettered mug how-toI’m obsessed with metallic colors for the holidays. They are so elegant and classic. In addition to the black marker, I used the gold metallic marker to add flourishes and embellishments to my design.

You will want to be sure you place the mug into a cool, non-preheated oven and allow the mug to heat up as the oven heats up. The same thing goes for cool down. Allow the mug to cool completely in the oven before handling.

So, I created a sophisticated monogram with metallic accents for Emily, L&V’s Marketing Communication Manger!

    I love these! The markers would be so much easier then the paints I’ve been using. Thanks for a wonderful tip and beautiful designs.

    do you have to do the lip design then bake it? or can you do that after its already baked?

      Elizabeth, you should draw the lip design BEFORE baking. After you bake the mug is when it will become permanent and food safe. 🙂

    Do you know when the Christmas stencils will be in stock again? I really love the mugs. Have used the markers on other things such as wine glasses but would like to do the mugs for Christmas. I seem to be doing Christmas crafts all year round.

    I cannot get the stencils to work. The marker either comes off with the stencil or the marker bleeds under the stencil. Do you have suggestions…about to throw away the stencils and give up!

      Hi Dani! Oh no! I actually didn’t use the stencils to create mine – I just did it free-hand so I’m not sure how to help. I would contact the folks at Painted By Me and they should be able to give better advice about the stencils. 🙂

    Can I use permanent marker? Will it stay on if I bake it?

      Hi Cris! I would recommend using the Painted by me markers. I cannot vouch for using a permanent marker. 🙂 Hope that helps!

    I love these but I’ve read many DIY mug reviews that the marker comes off with washing. Does this happen with these?

      Laura – We would recommend hand-washing them. Better safe than sorry!
