17. Absolutely Gorgeous DIY Marbled Mug
You will not believe how simple it is to make these. You don’t even need a paint brush. The marbled design is ultra-modern and not going anywhere in terms of home decoration. If your home has a contemporary feel and you love lush minimalism, then these are the mugs for you! They’re so gorgeous that they shouldn’t be confined behind a cabinet door. Put them on full display in an open faced cabinet, shelf, or on a hanging hook. It’s like a tiny work of art that you can drink from!
18. Custom Mugs with Starry Mountain Scene
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – this is much easier to do than it looks. We promise that you can do this DIY mug decor idea even if you’re not so artsy. The great thing is that the process of thinking up a design is already done for you. All you have to do is follow the instruction manual! For this particular project, you’ll want to start with a gray mug. You actually only need two shades of paint – white and black – for this. You can simply mix some of the white and black together to create that third gray color you see. Guess how you paint a pine tree? Draw one vertical line and do little dashes down either side of it. You’ve totally got this!
19. Fabulous Teal and Gold DIY Mug Design
We love all of these DIY mug ideas, but the ones that are the easiest to do and have the greatest visual impact have got to be our favorites! Just look at this beauty. All you have to do is paint gold on a teal mug. That’s it! The result is absolutely stunning and so on-trend. Use painting tape to get that crisp line to a point. When you remove the tape you can go back in to touch up any areas that may not be precise. You can literally do this project in 30 minutes. This would make a gorgeous gift, especially if you popped in some wrapped gift wrapped goodies into the cup. On second thought, its so pretty you may not be able to give it away.
20. Frozen Metallic Snowflake Mug Idea
Grab your stencils and let’s get to it! This fun winter design uses metallic paint that glitters and shines just like fresh snow. We love the combination of turquoise, silver and gold. It’s nice and festive for the winter months and the turquoise adds a pop of color that will last beyond the holiday season. Stencils are your best friend when it comes to pulling off a design like this. Just take your time and you’ll have a mug worth singing a Disney song about before you know it!
21. Do-It-Yourself Colorful Marbled Mugs
Thought the marbled look was all about neutrals? Think again! A marbled design in a bright, bold color like this canary yellow or Tiffany blue gives you the style of marble with the zest of your favorite hue. DIY mug ideas like this look amazing in a set of 4. You can do two of each color or four complementary colors. Either way, we’re pretty sure that you’ll totally swoon over how amazing these look (and how easy they are to make).
22. Gold Dipped and Gold Tipped DIY Mug Ideas
We love the notion of having a set of mugs that go together but aren’t too matchy-matchy. This is a perfect example. One of the mugs is painted with a “gold dip” look – a simple horizontal boundary between the white ceramic top and the painted gold bottom that goes around the mug and handle. The second mug is painted with a gold tip. Instead of the horizontal design the gold is angled and comes to a tip on the side opposite the handle. The result is stylish, timeless, and equal parts beverage container and home decoration.
23. Couple’s Harry Potter Mug Idea
So, these are about the cutest things we’ve ever seen. For all you Harry Potter fans out there, this is a fantastic take on the “his and hers” style. “His” mug has a silhouette of Harry Potter’s hair and iconic glasses. “Her” mug has a cameo of the brave and industrious Hermione Granger. Any fans of the series – from muggles to wizards – would instantly fall under a love spell for these mugs.
24. Precious Pointillism DIY Heart Mugs
These are just begging to be given as a Valentine’s Day gift. We love the idea of using a clear glass mug as the base for this. Once you’re finished with drawing your heart, you can fill them with colorful candies which will add even more visual appeal to the whole design. You can use a heart stencil to provide the outline if needed. Just tape it onto the mug and hold it down as you do your initial border of the shape. From there let the dots get spaced further apart as you get away from the border of the heart. A thoughtful, hand-crafted gift like this is sure to make anyone’s Valentine’s Day special.
