The theme of a recent bachelorette party I attended was Beyonce… because, why not?! I knew that we had to go all- out with our “Queen B” theme, and that included a photobooth, Beyonce cut outs, pins, and mugs with Beyonce sayings. These mugs were super easy to make and they were SUCH a hit! All the girls who attended the party took one home and I’m sure they will remember our Flawless night when they sip on their morning coffee.
To make these mugs, you will need:
- Any color plain ceramic mug (I chose white and got mine at the dollar store)
- Alcohol wipes/rubbing alcohol
- An oil-based, non-toxic sharpie
- Beyonce songs or quotes (or whatever else you want to write on them)
- An oven
Start by cleaning the mugs and wiping them down with rubbing alcohol. Make sure all residue is removed. Let them dry for a few minutes.
Using your oil-based sharpie- begin your designs! I sketched out a few sayings that I wanted on a notepad before making them permanent on the mug. This is the fun part and it definitely does not have to look perfect!
Then let the mugs sit for 24 hours. Although you may want to bake them right away, I highly recommend letting them dry completely overnight so that the designs are more durable.
After the mugs are completely dry, put them on a cookie tray in the oven THEN turn the oven on to 425 degrees. Once the oven has reached 425 degrees, set the timer for 30 minutes and let the mugs bake. When 30 minutes is up, turn the oven off but leave the mugs in the oven for a while to cool down. This will prevent the mugs from going to extreme temperatures and cracking. Be careful when you remove the mugs, they will most likely still be warm. Let them sit for a while.
Once the mugs were baked, I rinsed them off carefully to see if my Beyonce quotes stayed on and they were perfect! However, I would not recommend putting them in the dishwasher.
These were SO fun to make and the girls at the party had something fun to take home. To make it extra personal, on the bottom, write the Bride’s name and the date. Fill the mugs with candy, glow sticks, and other fun stuff!
