Hi everyone! Welcome to day nine of my 12 Days of Handmade Gifts! Handmade sharpie mugs have been circulating the web for a while now. You can find a bunch of tutorials on pinterest or google, like the ones Here, Here, Here, and Here. The method is all pretty much the same. You grab a mug draw your design or doodle and bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for half an hour letting it cool in the oven.You can use sharpies or sharpie paint markers. I used the paint markers since I have used them in the past and they seem to be more permanent.
These mugs are so incredibly easy, and fun to make! They make a fabulous gift on their own, or fill them with candy or cookies for an extra special treat. They are totally customizable, and with all the fun colors you can go as wild and creative as you like. I am not great with drawing, but I think they still turned out cute. I just decorated them freestyle as I went, but I think they would look more professional if I had used a handmade stencil or transferred the design first. I hope you all go and try some yourselves, you’ll have a blast! Be sure to tune in tomorrow for more holiday fun!
