20 minute crafter. chalkboard mugs.

Hello happy crafters. :)
Today's 20 minute crafter is Fawnda from
Fireflies and Jellybeans

She is here to show us how to make some adorable mugs...I saw these
and my first thought was how perfect these would be for teacher gifts!
Because summer will be here soon, right?
And technically this a total of 20 minutes of crafting
and not 20 minutes all at once. :)

I am so excited to share this project here on a Little Bit Funky!
This is one of my favorite blogs and Crystal has amazing projects and posts!
These CUTE chalkboard mugs will be perfect for any party! AND they are SUPER easy to make!


Here is what you will need:

Mugs (either new or ones you already have!)
Painter's tape
Sand paper (Optional)
Primer (not pictured)
Chalkboard paint (you can get this at most hardware, or craft stores)

1. Tape off your mug where you want your chalkboard rectangle to be.


2. Prime you mug in the area you taped off. Let primer dry according to the label.


3. After the primer is dry, paint on your first layer of chalkboard paint.
Let dry according to label.

**Some primers suggesting sanding inbetween layers**

4. Paint on your second coat of chalk board paint.
Let dry and cure according to the label.


5. Remove the painter's tape.


6. Rub some chulk all over the area you painted and wipe off to set the chalkboard paint up.
Invite your friend over for some nice warm drinks!

Or you can write the name of the drink on the mug...


Or write your blog name!
Thanks Crystal for having me today on:
**Note: these mugs are now HAND wash only***
Pin It!
