DIY Ideas // Super Easy DIY Sharpie Mugs

I decided to test out all of the DIY Sharpie Mugs I’ve been seeing on Pinterest lately for one of our lovely Gift Insider colleagues.  I’m always a little hesitant to try out handwritten crafts, because I’ve never been very fond of my penmenship and was worried it might turn out like a middle school art project…

But, with a little out of the box thinking I figured out a way… I used stickers as stencils to make amost perfect letters.

How to Make a DIY Sharpie Mug (w/ stickers)

1. Place the letter stickers on clean mug and trace around with a sharpie (I used silver since i loved the look with the Spring Starbucks cups)

2. Place mug in the oven (do not pre-heart) and heat up to 350 for 30 minutes

3. Take out of oven, let cool, take off stickers and you’ll have perfect letters and a totally customized mug
