Father’s Day Dad’s Mug

Father's Day Dad's Mug with DecoArt Gloss Enamels

Hi friends! You may remember that last week I shared a DIY Monogram Beer Mug that I made for my husband this year for Father’s Day. Well this week I’m sharing another fun mug gift – a Dad’s Mug for all those root beer floats! The project is simple but just so cute! A great gift from you and the kids – don’t you think? And it’s so easy to make.

What you’ll need:

And the steps:

  1. Clean your glass surface with rubbing alcohol.
  2. Cut out the word “Dad’s” out of vinyl with a cutting machine or use adhesive stencils.
  3. Secure stencil or vinyl with painter’s tape.
  4. Using paint brush or pouncer, fill in the stencil area with DecoArt Gloss Enamels paint.
  5. Allow to dry for a couple of minutes, then pull stencil off (you don’t want it to dry all the way or the paint will stick to the stencil).
  6. Let cure for 4 days, then secure paint to glass by baking glassware according to the directions on the paint.

And here’s how the cute little mug turned out…

So what do you think? What dad wouldn’t want his stuff labeled? I think we should figure out a way to mark the remotes as “Dad’s” as well, don’t you think? Hehe. Well I hope you enjoyed my latest craft with DecoArt! Now head to your local Michaels store and pick up your DecoArt Gloss Enamels and let’s create together!

  5. I had no idea they made gloss enamel paints like that. I thought when it came to glass the only option was to etch it. This is so cute and perfect for Father’s Day! Thanks again for linking up today for Craft With What You’ve Got!
