Sharpie DIY

Sharpie DIY

Graffiti. Anarchy. Permanence. We’re not suggesting venturing into a life of crime with your teenager but perhaps you can capture his or her rebellious spirit by marking up some porcelain. 

Anyone else find that mugs wind up decorating almost every room in the house by the time the day is over? It’s not planned out that way, but somehow the morning coffee mug ends up in the bathroom while the afternoon tea mug ends up in the office. So lets jazz up these little remains of the day with a little Sharpie™ action.

As we’ve mentioned before, KIDOLO does not want to inundate you with aspirational do-it-yourselfies, but this one seems like fun. Our only advice — embrace the flaws. Your mugs may not be perfect but they will be perfectly imperfect. That said, if you truly despise your drawing, simply wipe it away with a little soap and water.

When your creations look like they came from an Anthropologie catalog, let them dry completely. Once dry, place mugs in a cool oven and heat to 350°F. Bake for 30 minutes and leave them in the oven to cool.

Artisan mugs, check. Bonding time, check. Now who’s ready for some coffee?
