I’ll admit, I don’t think of myself as a very creative person. I use baking as an outlet more than drawing, or writing, or painting, but every once in a while I want to do those too. These DIY personalized mugs are such a fun way to get creative and they couldn’t be easier.
I recently found Sharpie Oil Based Paint Markers at Michaels and they are perfect for decorating these mugs because the paint pen sets on the mug when baked and doesn’t come off when washed (even in the dishwasher*) unlike traditional sharpie marker art which has to be hand washed.
The great thing about this fun project is that it can be fairly cheap (grab some porcelain mugs or plates from the dollar store if you can) and it can either be a fun independent activity (for needing a creative outlet), or a great group activity – think date night in, birthday party, etc. You can use mugs, dinner plates, bowls, or any other white porcelain dishes that you find – you’ll want them to be oven safe.
I made a couple cute mugs that I just can’t wait to drink out of this fall when the weather cools down (or I’ll be honest – I’ve been making myself single serving cobblers in them, for a quick and easy dessert that I love!) and I made this cute “You are Special” plate that we can use for special days, like birthdays, father’s day, celebrations of success etc. I grew up with this red “You are Special Today” plate that we pulled out for birthdays, so I wanted to make one that my own family could use on special days.
I think they would be super cute for a gift too!
