Anthro-inspired Monogram Mugs

Anthro-inspired Monogram Mugs

Posted by DecoArt on Sep 5th 2013

I love Anthropologie. Their designs are so simple and inspiring. I always browse there site for project ideas that I can create for a fraction of the cost. The other day I was looking around and ran across some monogrammed mugs and I instantly knew I could create my own.

Items Needed:

  • Ceramic Mugs
  • Letter Stamps


Start with two clean ceramic mugs, Deco Art Gloss Enamel Paint, Deco Art Glass Paint Marker, and letter stamps. Brush the enamel paint onto each letter, then stamp it onto the mug.

Chanel the artist in you and embellish the mug with different patterns and designs. I prefer simple (and the artist in me is basically non-existent!) so I chose to add simple orange polka-dots.

Once you’ve finished painting the mugs, let them sit for approx. 4 hours. This will allow the paint to cure. After the paint has cured, bake the mugs in the oven for 30 minutes at 325 degrees.

Your monogram mugs are now food safe and ready to use!
