So many things on Pinterest that I want to make; so little time to make them.

I loved this project the moment I saw it – it upcycles old mugs, involves typography, and is super quick and easy.  Craft skills needed = minimal.

Sharpie Mugs

Basically, you write on a plain mug with a Sharpie or a paint pen (I used a paint pen meant for ceramic/porcelain), and then you bake it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350F.  Easy peasy.

I got the mugs from a thrift store (4 for $3.99), and wrote four different quotes about winter on them (My fave? “Winter is nature’s way of saying, ‘Up yours.'”) I’m using these as stocking stuffers (with a packet of homemade hot chocolate mix tucked inside them).

This would make an awesome opening night gift – write the name of the show, maybe a quote or two from the play, bake, fill with chocolate, done.
