As usual, I wanted to make something crafty for my mama for Mother’s day. And since I have seen this whole “design your own mug with a permanent marker” thing on Pinterest a bagillion times, I thought I’d give it a shot.
All I did was…
1. Buy a plain white mug and a black sharpie marker
2. Wrote my design on the mug with pencil first (it rubs right off), and then traced over it with the sharpie marker
3. Baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes – not once, not twice, but three times
Whether or not the marker is actually going to stay on, I’m not sure. But, I did rub it pretty furiously to see if it would wipe off, and it didn’t. I guess I’ll have to wait to hear from my mom once she tries washing it! Still a little skeptical…
And, here you have it. A mug sure to make any mom cry (as long as you use a sappy saying like mine. I mean, seriously, what mom doesn’t love that book?)
Happy Mother’s day crafting!
Love, peace, and chicken grease,
