How to Make Chalkboard Mugs

Chalkboard Mugs
I remember a few months ago when I saw something similar in a store.  
I wanted to buy them, but when I returned to the shop, I was 
told that they were sold out.  I was so disappointed.  
I really wanted to get those cups.  
Since I haven't been able to find anything else like them, 
I decided to make my own.
I got these HUGE cups at the local supermarket at a great price.  

This is a great way to personalize your tea and coffee, 
maybe even soup or cereal.  They are great for my next kaffeeklatsch.

For this project, I used chalkboard labels instead of chalkboard paint, less mess.
  Here is what you will need to make your own:
Ceramic mugs/cups
Chalk or chalk ink
Make sure that your labels can be used by both chalk or chalk ink.
First thing you should do is to make sure your cups are nice and clean.
Second, make sure that you have the correct size label for your mug.
If you need to adjust the size of the label, you may cut it down as I did.
Once you have the right size, just peel it and stick onto your mug.
Next, write what ever you like with the chalk or chalk ink.

That's it, wasn't that easy?
 These label mugs bring a creative style to your mornings. 
Happy crafting!

  8. Is the chalk permanent or will it wash away when you wash the mug?

    1. The chalk is not permanent, it will wash away, but the chalkboard marker lasts longer as long as you don't scrub it away.
