Trend: Floral Coffee Mug DIY

It’s really no secret that I love coffee mugs, and I might have too many… The thing is that I want my coffee to sit in a cute vessel, not something plain and boring. That’s why I makeover plain coffee mugs! You can easily find a plain white mug at most stores, or I suggest wandering to a local thrift shop to buy a mug for cheap (there’s always a ton of mugs that need some love). For these projects I typically use paint or a paint pen, but for this Coffee Mug DIY I tried something new. I have discovered that Mod Podge now makes a dishwasher safe gloss! That opens up my mug creativity to adding fabric, glitter, and even paper. For my first time using this gloss, I made 3 floral printables to dress up those plain mugs. I have shared them below so you can make your own!

Print out the flower printable you want to use on your mug. Cut out the flowers, leaving a small white border around the shape.


In a well ventilated space, preferably outdoors while wearing a mask and eye protection, spray a light layer of clear acrylic sealer spray onto the cut out flowers. Let dry completely. The spray will keep the ink from smearing when applying the Mod Podge.

Wipe down the mug with the rubbing alcohol to clean it, then let dry.

Apply a layer of Mod Podge to the back of the paper flower, and apply a layer of Mod Podge on the mug. Attach the flower onto the mug. Be sure to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. Repeat this step for all the flower pieces.


Let the paper flowers dry for about an hour. Apply a layer of Mod Podge over the paper flowers. Let that layer dry for 2 – 3 hours. Apply 1 – 2 more layers (allowing dry time in between each layer).


This step is important. Before using this mug the glue needs to set for 28 days. I know this seems like forever… but the time will fly by. I promise. After the wait time is up, you can wash this cute mug on the top dishwasher rack!
