Good Days Start with Coffee and You—it’s the perfect sentiment for our DIY coffee mug, don’t you think? This is going to be your favorite mug for your morning cup of joe!
It’s an easy project, but it’s one that requires a little pre-planning. The mug needs 28 days to cure, so you won’t be able to use it right away. Keep that in mind if you’re planning to gift it to someone.
You’ll find several kinds of decoupage at the store, but be sure to buy a dishwasher-safe gloss. It’s non-toxic and water-based, and safe to wash on the top rack.
Just place the cutout at least ¾-inch below the rim of the mug to keep your mouth away from the gloss.
