Make a magical gift for Mom that she can use every day. Choose¬†her favorite colors and she’ll be delighted!

Time: 1 hour

What You’ll Need

  • White ceramic mug
  • Alphabet stickers
  • T-shirt or fabric
  • Acrylic paint for glass and ceramics
  • Medium circle sponge paintbrush
  • Small circle sponge paintbrush

How To Make It

  1. Wash mugs with soap and water.
  2. Press alphabet stickers onto fabric to lessen stickiness.
  3. Carefully remove stickers from fabric and press onto mug.
  4. Prepare a palette of ceramic paints. Choose three favorite colors.
  5. Paint layers of Mickey shapes over the alphabet stickers. Use a medium circle sponge paintbrush to create Mickey’s head, and a smaller circle sponge paintbrush to create Mickey’s ears.
  6. Once dry, remove stickers.
  7. Set the oven to 360 degrees and immediately place the mug in the oven. To prevent cracking, do not pre-heat oven prior to placing ceramic mug inside. Pre-heating may cause the ceramic mug to heat up too quickly.
  8. Bake mugs for 30 minutes. When time is complete, turn oven off and allow mug to cool there. Removing mug from oven too quickly may cause the mug to crack.
  9. Present mug to Mom on Mother’s Day!


The painted project becomes permanent after baking. All baking and oven use should be done by an adult.
