Trend: 16 Coffee Mug DIY Ideas

Mugs are a popular gift and customizing them can be fun to do and the perfect project for a craft night with your friends. Pair your custom mug with a small bag of coffee, or a some special tea, and add a bow to create a perfect gift for just about anyone.

If you’ve been on Pinterest then you’ve probably seen the hundreds of mug DIY ideas out there. It can be a bit overwhelming skimming through all of those posts, so I gathered some favorites for you. If you do head out to search for some mug DIY’s in the big internet world, just keep a few things in mind: Don’t use paint where your mouth will touch the mug (the paint is not food safe). You need to use dishwasher safe Mod Podge for a glued mug project to be successful (other Mod Podge could wash away). Plain ‘ol Sharpie pens will not last on a mug, there are special Sharpie Paint Pens to use for these projects.

Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge:
