Personalize Glass Mug – Step by Step Tutorial
Personalize Glass Mug
I made a bunch of these personalize glass mug for Christmas last year. It was a simple inexpensive project to make for all of the men and boys in the family. I purchased all the 26oz mugs from the Dollar Tree. Everyone loved them!
- Glass Mug 26oz
- FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint – Color you like
- Roll of Painters Tape or Masking Tape
- Paint Brush
- Paper Towels
Wash mug. Then wipe down the area to paint with rubbing alcohol.
Get your stencil ready.
I tape a piece of painters tape to the very top as a design placement. You don’t want the design where they’re going to drink out of the mug. Give it about a 1″ down or use the tape method like I did.
Center the stencil where you like it, then peel the back and stick it down.
Tape all four sides of the stencil down for added security. It also helps to prevent overran paint brush strokes.
It’s time to paint the stencil. I painted the letter “T” with the color of Licorice with the Forkart Multi-Surface paint. Allow to dry. It takes a few hours to dry. Then carefully remove the tape and peel the stencil off.
Bake in an oven at 130 degrees for 45 minutes. Leave the mug in the oven to cool down an hour or two before opening the oven door.
Directions also state that you can air dry for 21 days before washing.
After baking the mugs are dishwasher safe. However, it suggests hand washing to keep the paint looking fresh and new looking.
***If there is more then one person in the household with the same initial then use multiple colors. For example, I had multiple names that start with the letter “A” so I used green, blue and black paint. Each person could identify which mug was theirs.
