Painted Mugs

The project: Painted Mugs

The blogger: Curious and Catcat

Why we love it: Turn plain porcelain mugs into gift-worthy, boutique-style kitchenware for the beloved coffee and tea fanatics on your holiday-shopping list.

What you need: White mugs; dishwater safe porcelain pen; nail polish remover (for mistakes!); and cotton balls.

How to make it: Draw a design of your choosing around the mugs with the porcelain pen. (Use the nail polish remover and cotton balls if you make a mistake.) Let dry. Place the mugs in the oven and bake at 320°F for 90 minutes to set the paint.
