Sharpie Mugs

I made these as a gift to go with the cork coasters. It was a super cool and easy gift!

What you need:

*Oil-based sharpie paint markers (I used black and gold but feel free to use any colors!)

How to make your Sharpie Mugs:

**If you are comfortable with freehand skip the first 2 steps. (I did a mix of freehand and using a stencil)

1.) Find your design online and print it out.

2.) Cut out your design and trace it on your mug with a pencil.

3.) Draw on your designs with your paint sharpies.

4.) Put in the oven at 250 Degrees for 2 hours.

** There are tons of suggestions for temperature and time but this combination won based on the test done here

Then you are done! It should stand up to hand washing but avoid the dishwasher because it might cause the paint to chip. These are the perfect gift they are super simple and turn out really well. I made these as a gift for a Harry Potter fan!
