From pin to reality | Sharpie + mug

DIY doodled mugs

I have had these kinds of pins in my Crafts board forever and I have been putting of doing them. Then when Valentines day is coming up, I thought what the heck!

I have made a few different designs (will show the others in another post), but the one I want to show today is this one below.

I made this mug for my daughter to give her on Valentines day. The "title" is Small things I love about you.
One thing I learned making this is that it is much harder to write nicely on a my than on a paper :) But it will do.

On the other side and around, I wrote You are kindhearted, you are helpful etc. I chose to highlight the adjectives with a red sharpie. I don´t know if this happens with all sorts of color, but after I had baked the mug, the red turned a bit darker. I put them in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Farenheit (178 degrees Celicius) for about 30 minutes. I have seen a few posts saying that this will not make them dishwasher safe, but as I know that I will just handwash them :)
I think it turned out cute! And what an easy craft for all to make! I already have plans for when my neices and nephew is coming later this month :)
