Has anyone else seen the pin on Pinterest where you can decorate mugs with sharpies? I’ve wanted to try it for a long time but every time I visited the Dollar Store to buy the mugs they were out of them. So when I went into Target and saw some on clearance I knew I had to grab them fast!
The mugs were perfect, nice and large and great for a hot beverage! They were also cheap. And you can’t beat cheap.
All you need for this project are these three things:
- Ceramic mugs,
- Sharpies (fine point work the best!), and
- An oven.
Set the oven to 350 degrees and “bake” the mugs for 30 minutes. Once they’ve “baked” you can wash them (gently handwash) and the design shouldn’t come off! If it does, just trace back over the design and bake it again.
You can use stencils for whatever design you want on your mugs or you can freehand it like I did. If you mess up you can use a wet paper towel to wipe off the mistake and re-do it! It’s really that simple!
Have you tacked the sharpie mugs yet? They could also make a really cute gift for grandparents from the grandkids!
