Hello everybody and welcome to Blogmas day 18!

I am back at it again with decorated mugs. If you haven’t seen myย decorated Sharpie plates and vase here they are:ย DIY Baked Sharpie Plates ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–Œย andย DIY Christmassy Plate and Vase ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–Œ
Sono tornata alle tazzine da decorare! Se non hai visto i miei piatti e vasetti decorati con gli Sharpie eccoli qua:ย DIY Baked Sharpie Plates ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–Œย andย DIY Christmassy Plate and Vase ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–Œ

Today I am going to decorate a tiny coffee mug! It’s an old one Iย don’t use anymore so I decided to repurpose it and turn it into a mini pot. I am sure that lotsย of you have old mugs so it’s time to recycle! This is also a great gift idea for Christmas. Super simple to make and of course super pretty!
Oggi ho deciso di decorare una tazzina da caffรจ! La mia รจ vecchiaย e non veniva usata quindi รจ diventata un piccolo vasetto. Sono sicura che molti di voi avranno delle tazze che non usate piรน quindi รจ ora di riciclare! Questa รจ anche una bella idea regalo per Natale. Super facile da fare e anche carina!

What you will need is:

  • Old coffee mug
  • Uni Posca markers or Sharpie *optional*

I say optional becauseย if you don’tย feel likeย decorating mugs just putย a plant into the mug you have! Check out the last pictures of this post, you will see that I made a decorated mug and a not decorated one โ˜บ๏ธ In my opinion they both look fantastic. If you want to give it a personal touch the decorated one is perfect.

Occorrente:

  • Una vecchia tazzina
  • Uni Posca o Sharpie *facoltativo*

Dico facoltativo perchรฉ se non avete voglia di decorare la tazzina potete anche farne a meno! Se guardate le ย ultime foto di questo post vedrete che ho sia una tazzina che ho decorato, che una tazzina normale โ˜บ๏ธ A parer mio sono tutte e due simpatiche. Se vupo darci un tocco personale la decorazione a mano รจ perfetta.

1. All you have to do is start drawing what you feel like and make it as pretty as you can! As you can see I decided to doodle some flowers.
1. Tutto quello che devi fare รจ cominciare a decorare quello che ti pare. Come puoi vedere ho deciso di disegnare dei fiori.

When you’re done drawing bake the cup in the oven at 160ยฐC /320F for 45 minutes (for Uni Posca markers), 120ยฐC/250F for 2 hours (for Sharpies).
Quando hai finito di disegnare cucina in forno a 160ยฐC per 45 minuti (per Uni Posca), 120ยฐC per 2 ore (per Sharpie).

When it’s done baking put a small plant or cactus inside and you’re done!
Quando ha finito di cucinarsi mettici dentro una piantina o un piccolo cactus e voilร !
