What you need: Coffee mugs
Tape (I used duct tape, but masking tape would work fine)
Oil based markers
Level of difficulty: Easy
Time: Less than 30 minutes
Step 2: Choose your design. I decided to use a holiday themed design. It is easier to buy scrapbook stickers shaped in letters for this design but I cut mine out of duct tape I had laying around. I cut out the word "joy". You want to place your word wherever you think is the best spot and make sure the stickers are secure.
Step 3: Pick your colors. I originally wanted to use just red and green but I figured gold accents would make the colors pop.
Step 4: Time to decorate! This is the easy part. Just fill the entire mug with small dots of your colors. Once you are content with the way the mug looks, let it dry for 24 hours. Take the tape off, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
