DIY Stencilled Valentine’s Mug

Stecilled Valentine's Day Dollar Store Mug. Sew Country Chick

Some of you who read this blog may have noticed I’ve been doing more craft projects lately. While sewing is still my first love, I’m trying to explore some other creative outlets. Things  that are quick and easy. Recharging, if you will. This DIY Valentine mug would make a perfect and quick Valentine’s gift for someone.

MugCloseUp I bought a plain white mug from the Dollar Tree and got out some Martha Stewart reusable adhesive stencils from my craft stash. I used the Martha Stewart Glass paint in red and the little sponge pouncer applicators to apply it.

mugsWhen working with glass paints on ceramics, the painted item should be baked in the oven on  low heat to make the dish washable. The heat makes the glass paint very durable. If it’s not baked, the paint can scratch off easily.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you try painting on ceramics with glass paint and stencils. It’s REALLY easy!
