DIY Sharpie mugs are taking over the internet, and when a plain, white mug fell into my hands, I knew it had the potential to be awesome. I’d never done anything like this before, so this was an experiment. After conducting researching (done after I finished my mug), many people recommend using oil-based Sharpies, which are apparently more permanent. I used regular Sharpies, so we’ll see how long my design lasts. Nevertheless, here are some instructions on how to create your very own Sharpie mug!

Here’s my finished mug:

I’m letting it sit for over 24 hours before I bake it (250° for 2 hours), so I don’t know yet if the Sharpie will stay on. I hope so! It probably won’t be dishwasher safe, but I’m more of a quick-rinse and air-dry type of gal, so it’ll most likely be okay.

What design would you DIY Sharpie on a mug?
