Cricut mugs are SO popular — and one question I keep getting over and over is how to seal the mugs after you apply the vinyl. Most people don’t bother to seal their Cricut mugs as permanent vinyl usually does well enough on its own, but it’s not really and truly dishwasher safe. So can you do it? You can, and in this Cricut mug tutorial I’m going to show you how to make a Cricut mug and seal it for a washable mug! I have put together this really easy tutorial to simplify the entire process for you!

These Cricut mugs are so cute and perfect for any level of crafter! Even if you have never worked with vinyl, don’t worry, you can do this project! Mugs are great for teachers, neighbors, really anyone — they are bound to bring a smile to someone’s face. Fill these mugs with candy and a gift card, wrap it in colorful cellophane, and you have a wonderful and thoughtful gift! These mugs are a simple, but personalized gift to give! How easy is that?

When I say that these are easy, I am not exaggerating! I encourage you to try this project, especially if you’ve never worked with vinyl before! One of the things I love about these adorable faces is that they are quick and simple to make! I wanted to create a design on a mug that is universal, one that will appeal to men, women, young, and old. We have all experienced these facial expressions at some point (especially BEFORE coffee) and now you can put them on a mug!

There are only a couple of items you must have to make this Cricut mug project. You need permanent adhesive vinyl in a color to go on your mug. You’ll also want standard grip transfer tape to get the vinyl onto your mug’s surface.

To clean the mugs, rubbing alcohol is all you need — cleaning them helps your vinyl stick better.

And then, to make your Cricut mug dishwasher safe, I recommend Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe Sealer! A foam or soft bristle brush will help spread the Mod Podge smoothly on your mug.
