DIY Expletive Coffee Mug

DIY Expletive Mug


Because before coffee, an expletive is sometimes all you can muster.

DIY Expletive Mug

To make your own, you will need:

  • White coffee mug (IKEA is where I got mine)
  • Pink and black acrylic enamel paint
  • Straw
  • Sticker symbols (I found mine in an alphabet pack at Michaels)

Stick your expletive in the center of your mug.  Then, add a dot or two of paint to the surface.  Use your straw  to blow the paint around.  I did a few test runs on a piece of styrofoam just to get a feel for it, but be prepared for the paint to behave differently on different surfaces.

Keep adding paint and blowing it around until you like the general look.  Then, remove the stickers carefully.  Scrape off any unwanted paint that seeped under the stickers.  Finally, bake according to your paint instructions.  This will typically include a dry time along with heating your oven with the mug inside- this keeps the temperature from going from one extreme to the other too quickly, which may cause the mug to break.

Allow it to cool, and then enjoy your bleeping mug!
