Make your own DIY Snowman Mug

Make and personalise a DIY snowman mug this winter. I love the simplicity of these homemade mugs and adding a name to each mug makes them feel really personalised.  Have fun experimenting with different designs! 

Make your own snowman mug

I wanted to make over 30 DIY gifts for the children in my classroom, so I needed a simple but effective craft and this mug was perfect!  

These homemade snowman mugs make great gifts, but they would also be really fun for older kids to make themselves. You could make them as Christmas gifts or as part of a winter or snow themed project. 

Another fun mug decorating idea that we have tried was making a DIY heart scribble mug.  This design was really easy, perfect for a younger child. 

The type of pens you use to make DIY mugs is really important.

What can I use to write on ceramic mugs? 

The best pens to use are oil based porcelaine paint pens. In order for porcelaine paint pens to become permanent you need to bake the design on in your oven. (There are full instructions on the back of the suggested pens)

Can I use regular sharpies on mugs? 

The answer to this question is yes you can, but your design won't last! Over time even baked on regular sharpie designs will wear away. If you want your mug to be washable you need to use porcelaine paint pens.
