DIY Chalk-Board Mug

     Happy Wednesday!  Todays post is this super cute and easy chalk-board mug.  I love chalk paint {I mean who doesn't?}.  You can do so much with it.   The possibilities are endless!  I have seen this craft all over Pinterest and have wanted to try it for some time now.  So when I found these mugs at Michael's, I knew I had to share it.


Materials:


-Chalk paint


-Decorative Mug {you can get them at any craft store}


-Paint brush


-Damp Washcloth


-Masking Tape



Step one:


Wipe off your mug with a damp cloth.



Step two:


After you clean your mug you want to tape off the section you want to paint.

Step three:


Now you paint! Apply two coats. One coat vertically and the second horizontally. Allow one hour drying between each coat.





Step four:


Once your mug is completely dry, lightly rub chalk over the entire section you painted. {sorry I don't have a picture for this step}


Now you are finished!  You can put flowers, candy, markers {like I did}, or fill it up with treats and give as a gift.



If you try this out I would LOVE to hear about!


By the way I started an Instagram account for my blog!  You can find me at nrousch. So go check it out!


Until next time,


Xoxo,Natalie
