mustache mug tutorial

A fun, easy and silly gift to give the cute men in our lives this Father's Day.


First, draw a mustache on the top of your mug with a sharpie marker. As you can see mine took a couple times to get right.
Second, trace around the edges of the drawn mustache with your Pebeo pen.

Next, fill in the mustache with your Pebeo gel stain.

This is a picture of one coat.
Be patient because it will take a couple of coats to get the look you are going for.


Lastly, follow the directions of the stain. Mine said to bake at 300 for 30 minutes.
Ta Da...the cutest little mug I have ever seen.
Fill with a favorite drink or candy and pass it on to the men in your life.
Happy Father's Day!

As you can tell, I might have a hard time giving mine up. They are just too cute!
