Here's How To Make Your Own Flower Painted Mug

Step 1: Start by adding petals to your mug with your light blue paint pen to create a flower.

Step 2: Continue adding flower petals all along the base of your mug varying the sizes. Tip: You'll want to avoid the lip line when adding your designs.

Step 3: Add a circle inside of the petals with the red paint pen and color it in. I added my circle a little off-center.

Step 4: Next, take your dark blue paint pen and add small circles where the petals meet the center of the flower.
