Todays DIY is a really easy way to freshen up old, plain teacups and make them so very pretty. Have you seen those mugs with the eyelashes and blushed cheeks? They’ve been floating around my pinterest a lot lately, I’ve been lusting after them for a while but reaslised that I really don’t need any more teacups.
If you follow me on instagram (@ejewell) you’ll know that I recently picked up the 80’s Glam sharpie set and have been crazy desperate to use them. So teamed with some old boring teacups I’d found the easy way to get those cheeky little cups into my life.
Here’s how you can get them into your cupboard too!
You will need:
- Plain Teacups
- Sharpies- I’m using original black and a pink.
Give your teacups a good clean.
Using the black sharpie, Draw two semi circles either side of the handle. These are your eyelids ;).
Add four little lines to the end of the semi circles to make eyelashes.
Use the pink sharpie to draw two circles, one under each eye. Colour them in. The smaller the cheeks the cuter your teacup will look.
Bake in the oven for 20 mins at 180’C. This will set the ink into the glaze and make them washable!
Look after your pretty little teacup! Anyone else think they look like chip from beauty and the beast? Soo cute!
Show me your new teacup friends, how did you get on?
