Things You'll Need

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Tape

Step 1: Download, Print, and Cut out Template

Download the free template, then print and cut out the image. Don't worry about cutting it out perfectly; as long as all the critter's features are intact, you're doing it right.

Step 2: Clean the Glass with Rubbing Alcohol

Using a paper towel, wipe the entire exterior of the glass with alcohol to remove any dirt or oil. This allows the ink to adhere to the glass.

Step 3: Tape the Template to the Inside of the Glass

With the image facing outward, place the template inside the glass and tape it so that the face looks straight.

Step 4: Trace the Image onto the Outside of the Glass

Using your paint pen, draw the panda face on the outside of the glass, using the template as your guide.

Step 7: Bake

Place glass in a cold oven. Set oven temperature to 200 degrees, and bake glass for 2 hours. Turn off oven; leave the glass inside and let it cool completely before removing.

Step 8: Pour, Drink, and Enjoy

Fill your panda glass with milk to get the full effect.

If making the sock monkey, try it with chocolate milk!
