  • White (or light colored) Ceramic Mugs
  • Silhouette stickers (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
  • Ceramic Sharpies or Pens
  • Optional – Rubbing alcohol (for mistakes!!)

Pro tips if you don’t want to use stickers:

  1. If you don’t want to buy stickers you could cut out a silhouette of a girl or one of a boy (those are just google searches) and tape it in place, you would just need to be a LOT more careful when you outline it, that the paper doesn’t bend or move in anyway!!
  2. A sticker machine could be used to create your own sticker using a paper silhouette.
  3. Or using a cutting machine cut out any silhouette with vinyl and create your own sticker.

Sharpie Mug Instructions:

  1. Follow the instructions in the video for creating your decorative silhouette sharpie mug!
  2. When you feel like you have your finished mug design, place it on a cookie sheet and place it in the oven, while the mugs are in the oven, heat the oven to 350° and once it has reached 350°, bake for 30 minutes.
  3. Then turn off the oven and allow the mug to cool in the oven completely without opening the oven door.
  4. BAM!  You are done!
