Big surprise here, another Pinterest success!! But this particular success has turned into a little bit of a money maker. I saw this idea of writing on mugs with a glass/ceramic marker and decided to make some for my boyfriend for Christmas because he lives on tea and coffee. Everyone who received them and saw them get opened told me that I should sell them because they're so cute, so on a whim I decided to put them on Etsy to make some extra cashmonayy. Check them out here!
glass paint marker (which comes in a few different colors) and mugs from IKEA for $2.99 each. They are a little pricier, you can get ones for a dollar, but I wanted them to be a little bigger and not as rounded so that it would be easier to write on.All you have to do is draw/write your design right onto the face of the mug. Depending on the marker you use, the following directions might vary (I know you can use a sharpie too, but not sure if the mug is dishwasher safe that way). After finishing the writing, let the mug sit and dry for 4-8 hours, then bake for 40 minutes at 375*. After that the mug should be dishwasher safe if you did everything correctly and got the times right (though I honestly recommend hand washing just to really make sure that the design stays looking fresh).
