• DIY Sharpie Teacups

    Posted on February 1, 2013 by in DIY Projects


    • White teacups/mugs of your choice
    • Mint colored sharpie
    • Gold sharpie

    How to:

    • Make a design of your choice on your cups
    • Turn oven on to 350 degrees
    • Bake for 30 min and let cool in the oven for 30 min.

    This project cost me about $3.00 since I already owned the teacups. Not bad!

    That’s it! Now you have new cutesie teacups customized to your liking!

    Do you pre heat the oven? Have you ever done this on a plate? or a platter? thoughts?

    • Maggie says:

      Yes, preheat the oven and I set them right on the top rack. Seemed to work fine. I have noticed fading in the light green color but the gold has worked out perfect.

        Thanks! How about the platter idea? I am worried about it coming off on the food? have you ever had that issue? or have you ever done it on a plate before?
