I know, I know, another Sharpie mug tutorial. They are all over Pinterest, but a plain Sharpie marker won’t work, well maybe it will for a short time… but it fades, washes off, etc. These you can put in your dishwasher, and if you are like me (as in lazy) dishwasher safe is kind of a requirement.
It is still very easy to do, but you will have to visit a Home Depot or craft store for a Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen. It is not expensive, I went to Michael’s with a 40% off coupon (they have them every week) and picked up a pen for around $2.00. I chose gold! (in case you missed it, I have a slight obsession with gold lately…)
Oven Safe Mug (I picked up mine for $.35 each at the thrift store)
Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen in color of your choice
After you design your mug, place it in the oven and turn the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes, turn off oven and leave mug inside to completely cool.
The little polka dot mug is my favorite! These mugs make great, unique gifts (I gifted mine during my Coffee & Granola Bar with Gevalia)
I really want to pick up more oven safe mugs and keep some for me. I have a pink paint pen that is just waiting to be used…
