DIY Sharpie Mugs

Sharpie Mugs

For Mark’s birthday a couple of weeks ago I took up my Sharpies to personalize plain mugs I picked up at Goodwill for 50 cents. (Quick tip – Goodwill has tons of great glassware for super cheap!)

After learning here that I could decorate with pens and then set the design by baking, I had to try it. It was super fun to draw and color (even for a artistically challenged person like myself) because if you goof up you can just wash it off!

DIY Sharpie Mug

You’ll need: A plain, oven safe mug and Sharpie markers of any color. I used my bright markers, which have a pretty fine point. A thicker point would probably make it easier to fill in letters or designs.

After you finish your design, bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Hand washing is recommended!

Sharpie Mustache

Mark’s mug got a little extra ‘stache. It makes me giggle every time I see it. :)

    Anyone else having trouble with the sharpie coming off while washing? I followed everything to a T and the sharpie is coming off totally not just a little

    Haha! How fun! That’s just another DIY on my long list of DIYs. I saw one person use those metallic oil-based sharpie paint markers. It was pretty that way too. I think yours look great and I definitely love the mustache. :)
