DIY: Gold Sharpied Mug

A while ago I saw a picture of gold sharpied mugs on pinterest and pinned it to my DIY board. It has sat there long and forgotten for many months. Anyways, we were in Office Depot when I saw the gold paint Sharpie, and I suddenly remembered the DIY, and thought that I should make it. And so I did. Here's how!

What You'll Need:
  • oil-based paint Sharpie (gold, or any color, really)
  • white, oven-safe mug
  • an oven

 I picked up this white mug from 99 Cents Only, and it worked perfectly!

 You can choose to do any design you would like- get creative! I chose to do small polka dots on the entire mug.

 After a good 35 minutes, I finished!

When you finish your design, set your oven to 350 degrees and bake your mug for 30 minutes. This ensures that the Sharpie won't come off when you wash it. Make sure to wash your mug before using.
This DIY is so simple, and is perfect for when you are bored during the summer. I hope you try it out!
