If you haven’t read my last blog post, then you may be a little lost and confused as to why I am doing a seemingly random DIY. So, go over and read that blog post, then come back and read this DIY. It will make a whole lot more sense after you see that post.
I have seen these Sharpie mug tutorials all over Pinterest and never thought I would ever give it a try (until now). But, here I am, #Pintertesting something. (I just love Pinterest so much guys. It is the bomb.)
So, I am going to show you how to make your own unique mug. Here we go!
Okay, all you need is: 1 plain mug, oil based Sharpie paint markers, and an oven. Simple right?
Start off by mentally preparing yourself… and get an idea of what you want to put on the mug. Draw a little sketch of it so that you can have it handy for when you actually put it on the mug. Then, use the oil based Sharpie paint markers (regular sharpies smudge and do not last long) to draw the design on the mug. Let it dry for a few hours (or overnight, which is best) before baking it in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 minutes. Once the 30 minutes is up, turn off the oven but leave it in until the oven has fully cooled. Then you can take it out and display it with pride. You can also bake it another time to set the Sharpie even more (but once is enough).
And, now you can easily make a cute mug for your friends! If you want to see more DIYs, leave a comment below with any ideas or requests!
