Super Easy DIY Watercolor Mug

Super Easy DIY Watercolor Mug

I’m in various makeup groups on facebook and these groups like to do secret swaps where you get a name and you buy them gifts and send it in the mail. I love doing it, it’s so much fun because you never know what you’re going to get! Well, in this particular swap it’s a Secret Valentine’s Day Swap and the spending limit is $50. Which, if you are a makeup lover you know that gets you like one good palette and that’s it, sometimes not even! So while I’m getting her a few smaller makeup goodies, I also wanted to do something more personalized and creative.

This mug is SO easy to do and took me literally 5 minutes, but it looks adorable!

What you’ll need
Ceramic Mug
Nail Polish
Dish filled with warm water (deep enough to dip the mug into)
Dishwasher Safe Sealant

Add a few drops of nail polish to the dish with the warm water, you can take a tooth pick and swirl it around if you want, or create whatever design. Then you just dip the ceramic mug in, lift it out, pat it (gently) dry and let it sit for a few hours to harden. I recommend sealing it with Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe Sealant, as it’s non-toxic and will let you pop it in the dishwasher.  🙂
