I haven’t met a grandparent yet who doesn’t love homemade gifts from the grandkids. And since all of Sophie’s grandparents are coffee drinkers, a personalized coffee mug was perfect. All you need is a ceramic mug and Sharpie markers, and your kids will do the rest. I know, I know, kids and Sharpie markers are a dangerous combination. Don’t worry. Even if they color all over themselves, this little trick takes it right off.
For a fun grown up project, write your favorite quotes, song lyrics, or memories on a mug, plate or other ceramic surface and give as a gift.
Plain ceramic mug
Decorate the mug with Sharpie markers.
Place mug on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let it cool completely before handling. Give as is or fill with hot chocolate, coffee, or other goodies.
To avoid fading, wash by hand only.
