How to make Chalkboard mugs

These CUTE chalkboard mugs will be perfect for any party!

They are easy to make!

Here is what you will need:
Mugs (either new or ones you already have!)
Painter's tape
Sand paper
Primer (not pictured)
Chalkboard paint (you can get this at most hardware, or craft stores)


1. Tape off your mug where you want your chalkboard rectangle to be.


2. Prime you mug in the area you taped off. Let primer dry according to the label.



3. After the primer is dry, paint on your first layer of chalkboard paint. Let dry according to label.


4. Paint on your second coat of chalk board paint. Let dry and cure according to the label.



5. Remove the painter's tape.



6. Rub some chulk all over the area you painted and wipe off to set the chalkboard paint up.

Invite your friend over for some nice warm drinks!



Or you can write the name of the drink on the mug...


Or write your blog name!


This was the tutorial I had featured on U Create!

**Note: these mugs are now HAND wash only***

I have seen projects similar to this...I think I will get me some of that paint and paint it on some of my 3 yrs olds (and mine while we are at it :) so that I don't have to do as many dishes! Or our cups get mixed up so much!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Love it! I just got some chalkboard paint from a friend, so I may have to do this. I've been using it on other things, and no primer needed. So if you don't have any, it's okay. I like the mug idea!

Such a cute idea. I have a can of chalkboard paint that I need to use up and this just might be the project for it.

Those are really cute. That would be a good idea for a family reunion or birthday party--on paper cups.

Hi, Fawnda! I love this project...going to bookmark it for Christmas gifts. :) Love that aqua mug! I'm visiting from Beth's Chalkboard Paint party. I liked an older post (#8 on her list) in case you want to visit. :)

I wonder if you could use the contact paper chalkboard stuff or if it would come off when washed?
