DIY Sharpie Mug

This week’s DIY is amazing. Seriously. It was easy, fun, inexpensive and it WORKED. And the results are really cool

 

I found this Sharpie mug tutorial on Pinterest from the Home Heart Craft blog. The mugs she made are Anthropologie inspired so my friends and I went on that same theme.

 

All you need for this is a white mug, different colored Sharpies and an oven. I got the mug for less than $2 at Walmart and I bought Sharpies because I didn’t have a lot of colors. So this week’s DIY is less than $10 — HOLLA!

Next, just draw. That’s literally all it is. And it doesn’t have to be fancy drawing. I’m not artistic in that way and I’m really happy with how my mug came out. Plus, if you mess up, the marker just wipes off.

Once you’re happy with the way your mug looks, stick it in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Here’s mine before it went in the oven:

After it bakes, the colors get a little lighter than they were originally. And voila, here’s the end result! It took about about an hour and a half to draw and color everything but if you’re more artistically inclined, it may be less for you! This is a fun, inexpensive way to make cute, personalized gifts or just spice up your morning coffee. 🙂
