DIY animal nose mugs

Welcome your family to the Easter breakfast table with these fun drinking mugs!

These adorable Easter mugs are sure to raise a smile at breakfast time. Spring a surprise on your loved ones with these funny mugs, and even the sleepiest of sleepyheads will come to the table happily in order to join in the fun! The long bunny ears appear on the side of the mug so that when someone takes a drink from it, a cute painted bunny face pops up on the bottom of the mug! You can give your Easter mugs a personal touch in a range of gorgeous colours using edding porcelain brush pens. They’re ideal for painting on porcelain, ovenproof glass and glazed ceramic as their special ink has a silky texture which produces an even finish. We went for a black-and-white design, but you can choose any colour you like from the 15 shades available. Once you’ve finished painting, allow the ink to dry for a short while, then set the ink by baking the mugs in a pre-heated oven. Your designs will then be dishwasher-safe.
