I needed a cute gift for my sister’s bridal shower, and since her wedding has a state theme, I thought this Sharpie Mug would be perfect! I had seen them all over Pinterest, but had never tried it before, until now. :) Don’t you think it turned our cute?? :) I also had to make myself one! :) So in this Tutorial, you’ll see about 3 different versions of Sharpie Mugs (Ohio, Illinois, and a Freehand one), but they’re all made the same.
Once you have your mugs made, why not check out a fun place to try your luck at playing Bingo online at FoxyBingo? I have not checked out this game, but I’ve only heard good things about it! Each room that is offered allows you to have a chanced to chat, win free bingo tickets, and spice up your bingo experience! You won’t be able to resist my tasty 75 ball games, so give a shot and see what you could win!
Anyways, onto the Tutorial!
- Permanent Sharpie markers
- White Coffee Mugs
- an oven
For the state mugs, all I did was use the Cricut and cut out a state outline and taped it to the mug.
Next, I took a black Sharpie and colored over the state.
Next, be careful not to smear the ink, but remove the cut out state.
Finally, I drew a little heart on the city that my sister is from! :)
Here is the Freehand mug that I drew for myself.
When the mugs have dried, place them in a cold oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes for the paint to bake onto the mugs. When 30 minutes is up, turn off the heat and allow the mugs to cool in the oven for an hour before handling. :)
