Personalised mugs

It’s never been easier to make your own personalised mugs! Make one for yourself or make some as Christmas gifts for friends and family. This idea is perfect for those of you who want to give personal gifts, but lack the time or skill for fiddly crafts.

Cut out the motif

Cut out the motif you want to use.


Place the motif in a small bowl of lukewarm water for around 1 minute.

Place on the motif

Remove the motif from the water and slide it onto the mug. Draw the paper towel from the centre of the motif to the edges to remove any moisture, creases or air bubbles.


Apply a coat of protective varnish to your motif and leave it to dry for a couple of days. The varnish will protect the motif so that the mug is safe to hand wash.
