How to Make Sharpie Mugs?

I’ve seen this Pin for a while now. I’ve seen so many ways to get it to work. Most say that it can’t be done with normal Sharpies. Well, guess what, I did just that. Stick around and I’ll share.

As Seen on Pinterest: Sharpie Mugs (that work with regular Sharpies!)


First things first, let’s gather supplies.

You’ll need:

  • Sharpies
  • A mug
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • And your oven

How to make DIY sharpie mugs?

  • First, wipe your mug down with rubbing alcohol and let dry.
  • Design your mug!
  • Put in cool oven and set at 425 for 30 mins. The idea is to get the oven hot at the same time as your mug gets hot. You wouldn’t want a shattered mug in your oven.
  • Let cool completely. Remove from oven and. Enjoy your neatly made mugs.

These mugs are hand wash only as any major buffing or dish washing will damage the design.
