DIY Mug "You Can Call Me Queen Bee" - love this for Mother's Day!

Mother’s Day DIY Mug (You can call me Queen Bee)

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to try a DIY project and I guarantee you’re going to adore this one. I want to make one for every mom I know! Here’s Alli with the details…

I am loving the “make your own mug” trend for two reasons:

1. There’s nothing better than a handmade gift.

2. It’s so amazingly EASY!

I mean, really. The possibilities are endless. I picked up one mug at the dollar store for this project, and I found myself wishing I’d grabbed a dozen.

I decided to go with a line from the Lorde song, “Royals.” You can call me queen bee…

To make, all you need is a mug and a Sharpee (or two). I went with black, and decided to add a little yellow to bring the bee to life.

First spend some time sketching out your message/drawing. I just doodled a few times to figure out spacing, and also how I wanted to draw my bee.

Then it’s time to draw on the mug itself. Once once you’re happy with your design, bake it upside down in the oven (300 degrees for 30 minutes).

This would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift as is. But if you have little kids, they could even scribble their own message or drawing. As a Mom of two little ones, a gift like that might actually melt my heart.

I am LOVING my new mug (especially because I live in a house full of boys).

And I now officially have the song “Royals” stuck in my head. Every. Single. Morning.
