Do you have a plain, boring mug that needs a bit of spicing up? Personalize your cups and mugs by drawing on them! You can use them to add personality to your home or would even as great gifts for your loved ones. Here's how to start:
- Buy some white cups or mugs. You can find them in superstores, thrift stores, dollar stores, and online. Here is a set of 10 mugs that's selling for $20 on Amazon.
- Pick a sharpie. Pick a color to use on your mug. You can stay simple and choose one color or be more ambitious and use multiple. If you're sticking to one color, then black is usually a good choice, given its striking contrast to the white background of the mug.
- Start drawing. Decide what you want to put on the cup, and maybe practice drawing it on a piece of paper before drawing on the mug. Pick a meaningful quote or a cute graphic to decorate the mug with, and get inspired by mugs being sold on Etsy or by Googling examples of sharpie mug projects online.
- Bake it. Bake the mug in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let it cool completely before using or washing it. When you wash the mug, hand-wash it gently instead of throwing it in the dishwasher, as a machine washer may ruin the design.
