There are many reasons why we personalize items. Perhaps it is a gift and you want it to stand out or be something special for the occasion. Maybe you have a mug sitting around that could use something to spice it up, or you've just received your Mora mug and would love it to have your initial or logo added so that everyone knows that's your mug. Whatever your reason or urge to be creative stick around for 6 creative ways to paint or personalize your ceramic mug.
These six ways to paint or personalize a ceramic mug are relatively convenient, easy to use, and most importantly durable. Yes, some are even dishwasher safe, but not all are microwave safe!

I know you're as excited as I am to get started but you may have another question. What materials do I need!
First, we need to pick the method that will best fit our mug decorating needs. Do you have a Cricut machine? Oil based sharpie handy? How about acrylic paint pens, markers, or alcohol ink? I'll add a shopping list of materials for each personalization style. You may have the items you need already stuffed in your craft bin.
Under each section I will add specific steps to each technique, pros and cons of each method, and a shopping list or items you will need. I added links to certain products or stores where I made my purchases, but please purchase the items however convenient for you or use what you already have on hand. These projects are not brand specific, I just wanted to share what I used in case it is helpful to you.
