Some of you may be thinking, hey lady, Father’s Day has come and gone… so what’s up with this post days after. Well, I have an answer for you. Although this coffee mug was made specifically for Fathers Day, this project can be recreated for virtually anything, even just a too hot to be outside day. I used the same method as listed here, and modified the art for Father’s Day!
For this project, I placed stickers on the mug to spell out DAD. After that Hudson and I sat down at his craft table with a few chisel tip Sharpies, I know dangerous, and let him color away. My favorite pair of jeans almost became a casualty of this project, as they were sneakily attacked by Hudson and said Sharpie. Anyways, because of his heavy-handed, aggressive coloring style you almost can’t see that it says Dad unless you really look. However, I think that is what makes the cup so special. It really captures this phase of his life, as he explores his fine motor skills and develops dominance in one hand.
Once the cup is all colored, pop that baby in the oven at 350 for an hour and you are done! Be sure to hand wash only and you will be set!
Things I found on Pinterest, specifically this article here (also referenced here), inspired this project. Be sure to head over to Pinterest and follow along to see the different things I’m pinning, from kid’s lunches to hair to fashion and everything in between.
If you recreate this project with your littles be sure to #adornedDIY so I can see. Thanks for stopping by!! xx
