#DIY: Sharpie Painted or Personalized Mugs
For a caffeine person like me, one best way to start the day is to start with a cup of coffee. Why not make your cup more personalized? Pretty interesting, isn't it? Or maybe you just wanna cheer up your partner in the morning, bring him or her a cup of coffee/tea with a personalized message on his/her mug. That will surely bring a smile on anyone's face :).
This is just a simple DIY project you can do with your kids and it can also be a perfect gift for any occasion.
I use a Sharpie pen, this time it's BLUE. For some reason, I am so into the color BLUE lately.
For the first mug, I used a tape to form a letter L. Second, I grabbed my Sharpie pen and write endless dots around the tape until I had enough dots to cover the whole area of that side of the mug. Then, I gently remove the tape and waited for the dots to completely dry up. After that, I put the mug to 300 degrees oven for 30 minutes to make sure the dots will not rub out. Finally, your mug is ready, just let cool completely before you touch it.
The second mug is more on like the first one, I just wrote a simple I LOVE YOU and drew some hearts around it. I also wrote the word FOREVER inside the mug, just a little gesture that after hubby finished his coffee, he gets to read it (cheesy, I know). After that, I put the mug to 300 degrees oven for 30 minutes to make sure the dots will not rub out. Finally, your mug is ready, just let cool completely before you touch it.
It is so easy and you can be more decorative and creative by playing with more colors of sharpie pens. It is actually kind of addicted, I probably see myself buying more plain white mugs. Hahaha.
You can write any sweet message or quote that you like.
The possibilities are endless, you can draw anything you like or add more colors of sharpie if you desire.
