  • This DIY project makes a PERFECT Christmas gift. And it's so cheap! The most expensive item to make these mugs are the sharpie markers. So that's pretty cool! The decal paper is $2-3 for 3 sheets. So make sure you run test prints before you print on them. There are so many designs you can do for the sharpie mugs, and if you google "diy sharpie mug" you can find a TON of photos to inspire your creativity!

    use the FREE program called GIMP to make the photo collage mug. You can download it here: http://www.gimp.org/

  • ***NOTE***Mod Podge and the sharpies will wash off... even after baking the sharpie mug. Enamel paint (particularly the Folk Art brand) is the best way to do DIY mug decorating. I'd assume that if you can get a clear enamel paint, you can layer that on top of the decal that it will work well to seal it in. You still would need to bake it about 3o minutes (at 350 degrees).
