Homemade Gifts

For Father's Day this year we went for all homemade presents. I'd seen lots of Pinterest boards where people used Sharpies on mugs (with mixed results) but then I found these brilliant ceramics pens in Hobbycraft and thought I'd give them a try.

I got two mugs in Tesco for 89p each and got to work.

I went with my babies hand prints (only because I thought it was the easiest option). So I cojouled the toddler into letting me draw around her hand and did the newborns whilst he was asleep.
I placed them on the mug and drew around them.
Then had to wait for four hours and then I could bake it in the oven. I also then got all creative and decorated a plate too for my dad.
With my spare mug I decided to let the toddler go wild with the pen. I was nervous and she was dizzy with excitement and this was her creation for daddy to use at home (the other mug went to work). I know it's rather 'scribbly' but my girl doesn't bother herself with colouring or pens of any sorts usually so this in itself is amazing.
Now I'm just trying to decide who else should receive a masterpiece...
