DIY Tribal Triangle Mug

By December 3, 2012Uncategorized

I’ve yet to end my love affair with triangle patterns (like my DIY triangle chain rug) so here we go again!

This is a super simple DIY, with just two supplies necessary: a mug and a black oil-based paint pen.

The oil-based pen (I chose Sharpie oil-based paint pen in black, from Michael’s) writes super well on ceramic and porcelain, plus it dries quick so I wasn’t worrying about smearing as a drew my design. As far as the triangles are concerned, I free-handed the pattern. The pattern options are endless!

The mug is from Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree has some fantastic dinnerware options lately (Caitlin over at Desert Domicile recently wrote about the Pottery Barn-style plates), so for $1, it’s fun to experiment with paint pens and other crafts.

I have been looking for small gift ideas and I think these are perfect… and cost $5! I’ll stick a little pouch of tea inside, add some striped ribbon. Easy peasy.
