DIY: Personalized coffee mug

I’ve been thinking that I might like to have a personalized mug at work. Something that is clearly mine. When I found this tutorial on Beautiful Mess for using a Sharpie and an oven set to 350 degrees, I thought, “ah ha!”

This means I can use a mug scavenged from the office, doodle on it with a Sharpie from the supply closet and then pop it in the toaster oven for 30 minutes and voila! Office crafts!

(There is a note on Beautiful Mess that this technique may or may not last so I recommend trying it out on a cheap mug first. Probably best to make sure its clean too.)

  1. I tried doing this because I thought it would a great craft to do with the kids. Sadly, the Sharpie washed off in the first few washings.
