DIY Sharpie Mugs

January 04, 2014

One of the hardest things to do is buy Christmas gifts for loved ones. I being the crafty girl that I am at times decided that it would be a great idea to create sharpie mugs as gifts for E's brother and sister-in-law. I seriously loved how they turned out and was quite impressed with my penmanship as well, although it only took me a few tries to get it exactly how I wanted it. These mugs are so simple to create as well as super inexpensive which make it the perfect gift for those on a budget. They loved their mugs so much and have been putting them to good use every morning.


Coffee Mug
Permanent marker or porcelain marker


Use a porcelain or permanent marker to draw your design on the mug.
Put the mug in the oven for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. 
Let cool.

Now you have a pretty mug to keep for yourself or give as a gift :) 
Have you ever created a sharpie mug before?
