Mother's Day Craft!

Mother’s Day is the day which is celebrated in many different parts of the world to express respect, honor, and love towards mothers. Mothers are indispensable. They’re likely the first people we ever know when we enter the world, and they love and care for us as we grow up. The day is an event to appreciate our mothers and everything they have done for us. This is a DIY craft to give mothers on this special day.

 

Materials:

-plain mugs for coffee and etc.

-Sharpie paint, oil based markers

-oven

-pencil (optional)

 

The first step is to make sure you have a clean mug, then wash and dry it. Decide on a design and you can use a pencil to rough out any words or line. If you want, you can write things like: “Best mom ever!”, “Mom’s coffee cup!” and more!

 

Next, you want to overline everything you wrote with your sharpie! You can use all different types of colors to make your cup design interesting and fun! Make sure to be careful when doing this because you don’t want to mess up. Don’t forget, sharpie is permanent.

 

Lastly, bake your mug in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes to let the sharpies set. Once you take it out of the oven, leave to cool. Make sure to remember you can only hand wash these! They are NOT dishwasher safe!
