Homemade gifts: Mug and coaster

Decorating a mug or a coaster is super simple. Everyone loves to receive unique gifts especially when they include children’s drawings.

I picked up plain white mugs at the charity shop and white tiles at the local hardware store. When you are decorating a porcelain tile or mug you need to buy special pens so that the children’s marks and drawings can become heatproof. These pens are easily available from craft shops or online. The great thing about the pens are that if the children make a mistake it can by wiped off straightaway. When the children are happy with their design, follow the instructions on the pens which will involve cooking the mat/mug to make it heat proof.

After the coaster was cooked, I stuck a piece of felt to the bottom so it could be used around the home.

Perfect gift!

Happy making! x
