A Little of This & That… Renovating, Decorating, DIY Projects & Family

Here is an easy gift idea that was inspired by a friend of mine who makes personalized bride & groom sharpie mugs as wedding gifts (so creative). I had a few white mugs left over from this chalkboard project and a few sharpies in fun colors, so Liv and I drew out (and painted) some fun designs to play around.

My favorites ended up being Liv’s gold sharpie marker creations and my geometric painted mugs. So easy! A great handmade gift for teachers (filled with treats) on a student’s last day of school, or for dads this Father’s Day.

Here’s how we made it happen.

I preheated the oven to 200 degrees and set the sharpie mugs inside for a couple of hours. Then I turned off the oven and waited until the mugs were cool enough to remove with bare hands, this left me with a permanent design on the mug.

For the gold mugs, I turned to my favorite metallic paint and used painters tape to mark out a geometric shape. The mugs each received 3 or so coats.

To capture that seamless line, score the edge of the painter’s tape with a utility knife (just like we did here).

Boom, perfect line.

Repeat with any other favorite colors, I used a teal acrylic as well. Baking the painted mugs didn’t make the paint any more permanent so I wouldn’t put these guys in the dishwasher but would hand wash instead. Also, be sure to not paint inside the mug.
