Song lyric tea cups.

Finally, Music and tea can be together! At last! It's like a match made in heaven.

I've seen this DIY around everywhere, on blogs and pinterest, and I really wanted to try it out for myself.
Plus, I'm always writing song lyrics down everywhere, so this was a good way to finally get them out of my head! (Although, every time I pick up one of these mugs, I start singing the song).

This DIY is super easy (and cheap! I got these mugs from K-Mart for $1 each. The plate is thrifted, too).
These instructions are from A Beautiful Mess. All you do is:
- write/draw whatever you want on your (clean, dry) mugs using a permanent marker.
- bake in the oven at 180C for 30 mins.
- leave to cool before using.
That's it! I did read somewhere that you should use porcelain mugs, though, not ceramic. And they're not dishwasher friendly (which is fine for me because I don't even have a dishwasher!).

I'd love to see what you make! x


  1. I really want to try this project. It looks so simple to do. I wonder if you could use colored markers? Do you know if that would turn out?

  2. I saw one tutorial on another blog that used gold markers, which looked amazing! So, yeah, I guess you could use coloured markers, as long as they were permanent ones!

    1. Oh so cool, I never considered metallic markers. That is a great idea. Thanks Ursula! I've got this project on my to-do list now.
