During a trip to London, I shopped the shops a lot… and I went “natural” at Urban Outfitters.  Their brand offers a cute, yet cool decor.  Here is where I ran into the mustache mug.  To me, the idea was great!  So I look at the price, et BAM! More than £13, and I think… a little much for a poor cup with a simple drawing, not too complicated… So I say: “and if I made the same mug myself…?!”  For those who follow me on Facebook, you were already aware that I wanted a “fix” to transform an ordinary mug into a mustache mug.  Well, today it’s done!  The result is not perfect but I’m pretty pleased with myself :D


Discover how to make your own mustache mug with this little tutorial:

 

The “real” mustache mug at 13.25 €

 

Materials:

1. Färgrik Mug from Ikea, color: white, $0.99

2. Spray paint for all types of materials, color: matt black, available in craft stores, about $6

3. A mustache picture from the internet to make a stencil

4. A good pair of scissors

5. Scotch tape

- Create a stencil mustache

- Tape the stencil to the mug

-Wrap the cup with paper towel and secure it with tape

- Spray the mug with the paint

- Allow to dry

- Remove stencil

-Here is the result!

Several questions were asked such as “Can the mug go in the dishwasher?”  I suggest a gentle “hand washing” while avoiding rubbing the mustache (:
