I saw this DIY on Pinterest and I had to do it immediately. This is my first time doing the sharpie mugs and it turned out pretty well. I will definitely do more.
White Mugs (I got mine from target)
Sharpie Oil Based Markers
Print outs of the sayings you want
- Print out the sayings. I used a Harry Potter font I downloaded in size 60.
- Cut the sayings out and color the backs with pencil
- Tape the paper to the cups and begin to trace the letters. This part was the hardest part. The pencil barely came off onto the mug. I freehanded most of the writing. I recommend filling in the backs as dark as possible with the pencil. This may help.
- Once you are done writing on the mugs place them in to oven and put it on 250 for 2 hours. Allow the mugs to warm up and cool with the oven to avoid cracking.
I added alcohol as a material you need because when I messed up I used it to take the ink off and start over. Let me know if you try this DIY out.
