Mother's Day DIY | Sharpie Mug

Hola! Somewhere in my mind, I thought I would be doing several Mother's Day DIYs, but I don't think I realistically have the time to do so lol...but here's a cool, quick and easy one for now. A Sharpie mug!!!

My mom used to tell me and my brother "Y'all gonna drive me to drink!!" pretty often lol...we still get on her nerves sometimes. Anywho, mom's love to brag about their kids and how cool will you and your mom be when she gets to show off the fancy mug you made her to all her jealous coworkers/friends/relatives lol. You can be as simple or intricate as you like with this one. I bought the mug for like $2 from Target and I have Sharpies for days...from Michaels.

  • Porcelain mug
  • Sharpie(s)

1. Draw/write whatever your heart desires. I personally would stay away from drawing wherever the mouth could potentially be on the mug when drinking.
2. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let it cool down before handling or using...and you're done. These mugs should be gently hand washed only.

This would be a great gift for anyone really. Give it a try.

Stay Inspired.


  1. This is such a simple and sweet gift idea; wish I thought of something like this for mother's day.

  2. Hi! I actually love this idea a lot! Made a pair for me sis and bro-in-law's wedding anniversary. Now, I have to test if the ink runs upon washing. I hope not! :X

    1. Great! Hopefully it won't :) I also came across a cool idea for using chalkboard paint on mugs...you can try that if the sharpie doesn't work out lol
