DIY Monogram Stenciled Sharpie Mug

How many Sharpie mug tutorials do you have saved on Pinterest?

Now tell me how many of those you have made.

Don’t feel bad. I have a ton pinned, too, and I’ve made… zero. I haven’t made any, until now. That’s what makes this new blog hop so much fun. We are finally making those pins we keep saving but never find the time to make. This month I made a DIY monogram stenciled Sharpie mug based on this awesome tutorial from Delicious and DIY.

Step 6

Continue until you have the desired number of butterflies.

Step 7

Pull out your pink, green, and orange paint markers. If they are new, press the tip down repeatedly on a piece of paper until the paint comes out.

Step 11

Carefully start removing your stencils while your paint is still wet.

Tip:

  • Some of the paint ran a little but since I was going for a watercolor look, this added to it. If you are going for a crisp design, go lighter on your paint when dabbing on the stencils.

Step 12

Continue until all of your stencils are removed from the mug.

Note:

  • I didn’t like the look with only 2 butterflies after the stencils were removed so I added a 3rd butterfly.

Step 13

Allow your paint to dry completely before moving on.

Step 14

Bake your cup in the over according to the tutorial on Delicious and DIY.

Tips:

  • Although she doesn’t say this, I put my cup in the cold oven while it pre-heated. I worried that putting a cold cup (it is winter, after all) in a hot oven would make it crack.
  • After the timer went off, I turned off the oven and cracked the door. This allowed the cup to cool down slowly, again to prevent it from cracking.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
