DIY : Gilded Mugs


A while back I found these super inexpensive mugs from CB2 and couldn't help but scoop some up. I love their shape and how large they are. They are perfect for Saturday morning coffee or tea! I had some leftover metallic paint from the holidays and this past weekend I decided it would be a fun DIY to add a bit of sparkle to my mugs. I used Martha Stewart metallic gold craft paint & both sides of a very small paint brush. The big dots were made from the end of the brush and the little dots were made from the end with bristles. I kept the pattern the same put decided to mismatch where the dots went on each mug to keep them playful. 

Did any of you craft or DIY this weekend? I'd love to hear what you all were up to!

  1. Great idea! How long do they take to dry?

    1. After about an hour or so they were dry to the touch! I would give them a few days to dry completely before putting any liquid in them. After that definitely handwashing them is the way to go :)

  3. This is a great craft idea! I bought two gold calligraphy pens before the holidays and since I didn't even run out of one, I might use the other to craft some valentines gifts! Totally looking forward to developing some fun ideas using them :)
