I love my new monogrammed mug! Martha Stewart silkscreens make it easy to create a gift that looks much more difficult than it really is to make! All you need are the right supplies to quickly make several of these gorgeous mugs. This monogrammed mug makes a great gift that is easy to personalize with the alphabet stencils.
Supplies used to make a monogrammed mug (affiliate links/click on product name for more information):
- Plaid:Craft Martha Stewart Adhesive Silkscreen 8.5″X11″ 1 Sheet/Pkg”-Floral Doily 4 Designs
- Martha Stewart Gloss Opaque Glass Paint, 2-Ounce, Pacific Iris
- White Mug
Step one: Clean the surface with an alcohol wipe to prep the surface. Once it’s try, place the silk screen stencil on the surface of the mug.
Step two: Make a line of glass paint on the edge of the silk screen. Use a scraper tool to slowly drag the paint over the stencil.
Step three: Repeat as needed. Be careful not to let the stencil touch the previous images, as it will lift the fresh paint off. If you want to place the images close together, let it dry for at least 24 hours to set first.
Step four: Place a letter stencil on the mug, and fill with glass paint.
You’ll have to let the paint dry for several days, so if this a gift you need to start early. The paint is dishwasher safe after it has cured for 21 days or if you heat set it according to the package instructions.
