Materials List

  • Painted by Me Ceramic Markers in Cool Colors like blue, silver, aqua or green
  • Painted by Me Mugs
  • Alcohol & cotton swabs or paper towels


  1. To start making your flakes, draw a plus sign on your mug. The lines don't have to be the same length, but you don't want them to be crazy different.

  2. Draw an "X" over your plus sign, and the base of your snowflake is done.

  3. It's time to add to the base to start making a snowflake. Little "V" shapes are very popular. Add those to the ends of each line.

  4. Continue adding to the lines working from the outside inward. "V" shapes of different sizes, straight dashes, and little dots all work together to make the snowflake shape.

    Note: If you do make a mistake, use rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs or paper towels to remove the ink and start over.

  5. Put your mugs in a cold oven and heat to 375 degrees. Allow your design to bake on for 45 minutes. Once done, turn the oven off and let the mugs cool with the oven. You can crack the door to speed up the process a bit.

can you use just a regular coffee mug or does it have to be a specific kind?

Hello! You can use any coffee mug you'd like! The important thing is to use oil-based paint pens (like the Painted by Me Ceramic Markers) to ensure that your designs don't wash off in the dishwasher. I hope this helps! - Chelsea, Editor

What a cute DIY craft! These mugs are a great homemade gift idea!
