Chevron Painted Mug DIY

Well, I am finally putting together this post...  The last DIY of 2012.  I hope the wait was worth it!  I came up with this idea when I noticed that the girl I was a secret santa for put "chevron mug" on her wishlist.  I found these fabulous mugs at Target, on sale for $3 a pop!  You don't find deals like that just anywhere, people.

I made a total of four chevron mugs: one for my secret santa, one for my friend Emily, one for a holiday gift swap, and one for me of course!  You didn't think I'd actually go to all this trouble and not have a treat for myself at the end, did you?  ;)  A girl needs a good pick-me-up every once in a while!

Anyhow, hope you enjoy this DIY!   xx

1 //  A mug of your choice
2 //  Multi-surface paint
3 //  Stencils
4 //  Brushes
5 //  Masking tape

1.  Punch out the initials you want, and do a test run.  It never hurts to be safe!

2.  Tape your desired stencil onto the mug, and paint accordingly.  I encircled a pair of initials with a dotted circle.

3.  When the paint is dry, use your masking tape to create a chevron stripe and paint accordingly.  Have fun with it!

4.  Continue in this manner until you have as as many or as few stripes as can fit or as you want!


  1. i ADORE mine!! i still cannot believe it is hand painted,so pretty and perfecet!!
