His & Her Mugs

I keep seeing these super simple DIY mugs floating around Pinterest.  You probably know the ones I'm talking about....the cute his & hers mugs.  I decided to add this little project to my always growing "Pinterest To-Do List".  Like with any project you find on Pinterest, there is a good chance it will fail, but for $2.....this project was worth it.

Here is how my mugs turned out!  Please disregard my sloppy handwriting.  How did I make them?  Simple......2 dollar store mugs....doodle or write on them....and bake them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Viola'!  My daughter and I are going to doodle on one and give it to her teacher for Christmas.  :)  These hold up well to hand washing.  I think this project was a success!  Dollar store, here I come!

*Do not use in the dishwasher., you may lose part of your design.

Update (Nov. 6, 2013):  It's been over a year since I did this project.  One mug still has the design, while the other doesn't.  I blame the fact that I used a scrubby pad (whoops) on one of the mugs.  Regardless, it would be easy to redo my design onto the mug in question.
