Father’s Day is tomorrow, so if you are still in need of gift for dear old DAD, how about a DIY Beard Mug?
What You’ll Need:
- A plain white mug (I found my “kit” at Hobby Lobby on clearance
- Paint Markers (Be sure the package says it works on ceramic/porcelain)
- Beard template (I found this clipart and simply held paper up to the screen and traced!)
To transfer the beard tracing to the mug, I placed the tracing face down and did a pencil rubbing on the opposite side of the paper. This technique allowed a faint transfer of my original beard tracing to the mug surface.
Then, I took my fine-tip paint pen and followed the beard outline. Allow the outline to dry and then fill in the area with a medium-tip paint pen. Allow to dry and touch up as needed and that’s it!
Just in case you want to add a little something else to your mug… here’s the opposite side. Mr. home.made. and I are avid watchers of Duck Dynasty and their Happy Happy Happy motto and, well, if the beard fits:
Using the same transfer technique, I added this Duck Dynasty spin for dads everywhere: Daddy Daddy Daddy!!
Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads out there!
