I recently discovered a super cool product: Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paint Pens. I found mine at Michael’s (after checking Hobby Lobby) for $3.99 each. I decided to make a mug set for bridal shower gifts, so I picked up four plain white mugs at Target for $2.99 each. I made a design template in Photoshop, printed to plain paper and cut out my design. Then, I carefully outlined my design and filled it in. The Mr. and Mrs. mugs were a hit at the bridal shower! When I found some free time, I decided to paint two mugs I already had.
I decided to make a monogram mug and a whimsical tea bag mug, free handing my designs. And here’s what the look like:
(Sorry for the blue-ish tint) The B is a sketched fill, inspired by a set Design Mom featured.
Even though I don’t drink tea, I seem to be drawn toward tea items, so this was perfect for our tea drinking guests.
These mugs are huge, (seriously, our tiny coffee pot fills one cup) so I decided to play off that. The mug is large enough for tea for two.
Now our guests will have cute, custom designed mugs to use. As I said, we created Mr. and Mrs. mugs as a bridal shower gift. What are your favorite hostess, bridal shower or wedding gifts? Have you used the porcelain paint pens or glass pens? Anyone inspired to make a design of their own? The options are limitless. I’m looking for the perfect plates to make a pretty flower design or graphic print.
