At a glance, this looks like the kind of on-trend mug you might find at a West Elm or Anthropologie, but look again — it's a simple DIY that would make an elegant handmade gift this holiday.

The four materials you need for this can all be sourced quite easily: a basic white mug, indoor spray paint, painter's tape, and clear ceramic sealer.

For just a few dollars and a few minutes, you can make a mug in the time it takes to brew a pot of coffee. It's not dishwasher-safe, but with something this pretty, you probably won't mind admiring your handiwork while hand-washing.
