Dishwasher Safe Sharpie Coffee Mugs

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…)

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…

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea for a Mother’s Day gift for women at our church. I have never used oil based Sharpie markers before. Is it necessary to bake them right away because they may get smudged? We have ovens at our church but may not have time to bake them and cool them in time for moms to take them home that morning.

    • Hi Anna! As long as you let the paint dry for a few minutes after making the mugs, I do not think it will get smudged before baking. Thank you and hope you all enjoy them!!

    I have the boring white coffee cups that came with a set of @Correlle dishes. How do I know if they are oven safe? I don’t see anything on them that would note that.

    • i did a quick google search and it says : Are Corelle mugs oven safe?
      Yes, Corelle dishes are oven safe and the manufacturer says they’re fine up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. They’re not, however, suited to temperature swings and can’t be used on the stove top. … The Corelle warranty doesn’t apply to their mugs or stoneware.Oct 2, 2019

      *im not responsible for any of this info or if the cups explode lol*
