DIY Painted Glass Mug

glass mugThis is such a fun mug! I was browsing at Michael’s and found this glass mason jar with a handle and thought it would look really cute with a stenciled design on it. I also found a colored lid with a hole for a straw. I could already see it in my mind.

Things You Will Need:
Mason jar
Paint brush
Glass paint

*Get reusable stencils. They stick to whatever you’re painting on and come clean with hot water. You can reuse them as many times as you want.

Step 1
Stick your stencil onto your mug. Press your finger down across the glass to make sure the stencil is flat.

Step 2
Paint the glass paint over top of the stencil. Depending on the brand you chose,  you might need a few layers of paint.

Do this the whole way around the mug.

Step 3
Follow the directions on the paint you chose. Mine tells me to let the paint dry for 4 days and then bake the glass in the oven at 325 degrees for 30 mins. Yours might be different.

Let me know what you think! Would you make one? What kind of design would you use on it?
