DIY Gold Polka Dot Mug

DIY Mug2
Here’s a fun little DIY for your Tuesday!  This was actually pretty easy to do.  All you need is a gold oil based sharpie paint pen and an oven safe white mug.  I found this one at Urban Home for $2.  I drew the circles on with a bendable plastic stencil and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  I put the mug in the oven while it was preheating and let it cool down in the oven. (I don’t know if that makes a difference or not.) 
I saw the idea on this blog.  She used a Krylo paint gold leafing pen which makes a more shiny, metallic finish.  The gold sharpie loses some of the shine when you bake it unfortunately.  But I already had the gold sharpie so I used it anyway!  

*I haven’t actually used it yet so I can’t vouch that the polka dot’s won’t fade or wash off but I’m planning on hand washing it so I don’t think I’ll have a problem.*
