DIY Tutorial: Design your own ceramics

Inspired by a sweet pinterest post where the gal wrote a cute saying on a mug for a his and hers gift, I decided to take it one step further...

Here's my DIY: design your own ceramics

Sharpie Markers (I already had)
Dollar Store Plain Ceramic Mug


Take those markers and draw a pretty drawing.

Color it in if you choose to.

Set that oven to 300 degrees and place the mug on it while it is pre-heating.

Bake for 30 minutes and let cool.

Enjoy <3

So inexpensive and can make really cute custom gift for teachers, Christmas, baby showers, etc.



  1. OH MY gosh! Seriously, SUCH a cute idea!! Love this!

  2. HI there!! LOVE LOVE LOVE your mug and the design! I am making a mug for my MIL (Mother in love :) ) and finally stumbled across your blog and your mug design. It is exactly what I was looking for to recreate for her! Would you be willing to send me pictures of the mug on all sides, so I could replicate? I absolutely would not be selling the mug, and I could reference a picture and your blog URL on my facebook to give you credit and more publicity if you like. Let me know if you're interested. :) I'd really like to make this DIY mug for my MIL special for her, something she couldn't buy, and something she'd be super excited about. I can give you my email or you could give me yours and we could exchange. Thanks! ~Amber
