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!

Cork Coasters

These are super easy and quick to make! I am giving these ones as a gift but am thinking of making some for myself as well!

What you need:

*Cork Coasters (I found mine at Walmart)

*Oil-based sharpie paint pens ( I only used black but you can choose any color)

How to make your Cork Coasters:

**If you are confident doing your designs freehand feel free to skip to the last step.

1.) Find pictures of your designs online and print them out.

2.) Cut out your designs and trace them on to the cork coasters with a pen or pencil.

3.) Paint your designs on with your paint sharpies. Then wait for them to dry and they are ready to use.

Three steps and your done!! Super easy and quick and makes a super cute gift!! I made these for a friend’s birthday gift!

 

Chalkboard Wine Glasses

This project is super simple and makes a really cute gift for that wine lover in your life! (So really everyone, right?) We made these as a gift for our parents a while ago and they love them!

What you need:

*Cheap wine glasses(we got ours at the Dollar Store)

*Newspaper or something to protect where ever you are spraying

*Spray chalkboard paint

*Painters tape

Making your wine glasses:

1.) Start by taping off how far up you want the chalkboard paint to go on the stem of the wine glass.

2.) Then lay out your newspaper, I would suggest outside because it can be hard to control where the spray paint ends up.

3.) Next you just spray the stem and bottom of the wine glasses until you get to the tape.

4.) Let them dry, remove the tape and you should get a very straight line where the chalkboard paint stops.

They are then ready to use or wrap up with some chalk as a gift! Make sure to hand wash because the chalkboard paint will come off in the dishwasher.
