Most of our crockery is white – we love having all of our dinnerware and serving ware matching and it is easy to buy replacements when you get the odd plate chipped or broken. Sometimes though, white can be a little bit boring. I jazzed up a few coffee mugs recently with some vinyl numbers to make them more personalised.
Today I made a Bonjour! mug by applying some vinyl lettering to an old white mug. It has put a smile on my face and will be perfect for my breakfast cup of tea. My mind is already dreaming up words to put on other coffee cups. It would be fun to make up personalised mugs as Christmas gifts. All you need is a digital cutting machine, such as a Cricut, and some vinyl. What word would you put on a coffee mug?
The personalised mugs that we made 6 months ago have been through the dishwasher heaps of times and the vinyl is still well adhered and the colour hasn’t faded.
This project was inspired by Martha Stewart’s Painted Persoanlized Mugs.
