This year for Father's Day, we decided to get a little crafty. Ever since I started my addiction to Pinterest, I have been seeing "Sharpie" art on Coffee Mugs, so I thought this would be the perfect time to give it a try.
First, I found these fabulous mugs at Walmart. From everything I read, cheap mugs work best.
Then after gathering my collection of Sharpies, I let the boys go to town - using their creativity and imagination.
We completed the artwork on a Thursday, and then did the baking the following Monday (had to wait for days that Daddy wasn't home). Which worked out great, because the tutorials I had read said to wait at least 24 hours before putting them in the oven.
Here are the completed mugs (before baking).
*Note: After the baking process, the colors did fade. Everything done in black was fine, the colors - not so much.
Then this is how we packaged them.
I had seen this idea, but with a necktie. Well, their daddy doesn't wear neckties, he wears bow ties - so that's what we did! And then, I had to add buttons, of course.
Daddy LOVED his new Special Coffee Mugs from his boys!!
These are the tips that I followed for this project.
