Pinterest Inspired Christmas Gift Project # 1: Christmas Word Mugs

Following my post on Christmas gift ideas and decorations, BJ and I started working on a few of the DIY gift ideas I mentioned.

First up: Christmas mugs! I found this pin on Pinterest and thought, why not?

DIY decorative or favorite sayings mugs

This project was really quick and simple and you only need a few supplies.

Here’s what you will need to complete your Christmas word mugs.

1. Two white ceramic mugs. I found two mugs like this one at Target.

And small confession, I was a little overly excited to start my project that I forgot to take a picture of the mugs before I wrote on them…

2. Permanent markers. Also found at Target.

I chose red and green markers to go along with the Christmas word theme but you could use whatever colors you like. Before I started writing, I wiped down the outside of the mugs with rubbing alcohol so the ink would stick to the mug better. This is optional, but a good idea.

3. An oven and cookie sheet.

After I finished decorating the mugs with fun Christmas words, I baked them on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. IMG_2650 IMG_2651

Once they were finished baking, I carefully removed the mugs from the oven and let them cool.

Here are the finished products!
