DIY Designer Mug – Cricut Craft Ideas
Hi there! I’m Iris, of the blog Iris Nacole. I’m here at TCL today to share a simple fall inspired tutorial with y’all. I got the idea while standing in line to check out at one of my favorite retail home stores, where of course you have POP merchandise at your fingertips while you wait. Sneaky stores! More often than not, they have a huge selection of the most perfect coffee mugs, and somehow I’ve managed to keep myself from indulging in them only because I knew I could make one of my own one day.
Looks like today is that day! I recently purchased my first Cricut machine, the Cricut Explore Air™, and let me tell you friends, it’s a dream come true for me! The first project that came to mind to create on my own was this beautiful gold foil coffee mug. Since the world around me is quickly transitioning into fall, something fall related seemed appropriate. I tinkered around with a few different designs before coming up with this simple idea. Using this wheat image from the Cricut Design Studio, I was able to complete my project rather quickly. I love the outcome, and hope you do too! Here’s how you can make your own!

How to Make your own DIY Designer Mug
Let’s get started!

- Place your gold foil adhesive onto your cutting mat, load it into the machine and print.
- Remove the cut out images from the foil.
- Transfer the images to your mug using transfer tape.
Super simple! I’m thinking this mug would be a great gift for friends or family members, and since you’re making it yourself, why not make one to keep too! I hope you do!
