With the holidays fast approaching, my mind is in over-drive on simple but personalized gifts for friends and family. Today I am so excited to share with you one of my new favorite gift ideas, Sharpie Mug Art.
This is such a fun and easy gift to make. I made three in a sitting and already have more in mind to make!

There are many methods to start the design of this project with. You can free-hand a design, write out a poem, doodle, etc. On this instance, I used my Silhouette printer. I came up with three different designs for my three mugs and printed them out on black vinyl adhesive.
Before doing anything to the mugs, I cleaned them with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to remove any grease from handling. The sharpie will not adhere as well to a dirty mug.
After I cut out the vinyl, I carefully placed it on the mug. I had to peel it off a few times to get it just right. Make sure to tap gently at all the edges to ensure the vinyl is adhered nicely to the mug… you don’t want sharpie to make it’s way under there!
