Wednesday: Do it Yourself Challenge!

Sharpie mugs! Am I the only one left out of this secret?? I could have done 15 of these! If you are looking for a creative activity that passes some time on a slow day, then look no further! All this craft requires is a few blank mugs, sharpie markers, and an oven.

You could doodle as your heart desires, making designs that you dream up, or ones that you’ve researched online. Anyhow you do them, they will be your original masterpiece. Once you draw on them it is pretty hard to get the marker off, so you have to accept every mistake as part of the plan! While completing my Sharpie mugs, it brought me back to my good old days in high school, where we would take our sharpies to the back of the yearbooks to write our personal messages. The hearts, stars, and sentimental notes came to mind as I laughed through each stroke of the marker. Okay, maybe I’m having too much fun, but if you don’t believe me, give it a whirl and see what you come up with! It definitely makes you feel like a kid again.

When your art is complete, set the oven on 350 degrees and place the mug(s) on a cookie sheet, and in the oven immediately to allow for the mugs to gradually warm. Bake for half an hour and keep the mugs in the oven as it cools down. This will help the mugs not to crack. Share the mug photos with us at the bottom of the page! It will be exciting to see what designs you all come up with. Happy Wednesday everyone!
