Make a moustache mug for Dad
Looking for a cute DIY craft the kids can make that Dad will actually USE this Father's Day? Emma Rowe has you covered ...
This week we made moustache mugs for Father’s Day. It’s coming up fast, falling as it does on the first Sunday in September (that’s the 7 September in 2014).
Mugs were only $1 from Kmart and I used these awesome porcelain pens that you just draw on and you’re done. No baking required! You just let it dry for three days (although it is dry to touch quite quickly) and then it is dishwasher safe. Easy!
I don’t trust my drawing skills at all so I printed out a free moustache printable, cut out the mo shape, traced around it with a pencil onto the mug and then used the porcelain pen. I can’t seem to find the free printable that I used, but I’ve just come across this one that has a whole of lot of different shaped moustaches made especially to use on mugs!
Teamed up with this cute-as Easy DAD printable card I think it makes the perfect Father’s Day gift!
In searching on Pinterest (yes, I am addicted) I came across lots of fantastic and simple designs for using porcelain pens on mugs and plates. I’d love to give these a try next. These pens are obviously nice and easy for kids to use as well. The kids have all been to their obligatory Father’s Day stalls at kinder and school. Always makes me smile what they bring home.
Are you all sorted for Father’s Day?
