DIY | Sharpie Mugs

Aside from notebooks and ballpens, part of my favorite things are SHARPIES! I just like using them! On letters, signatures, drawings and my frustrated bag designer sketches. I had a lot of free time on my hands tonight so I decided to give my new set of sharpies a test drive! 

Since Christmas is just around the corner, I decided to come up with gift ideas, and what better way to give a gift that's from the heart not to mention - affordable! 

So first on my personalized gift idea: DIY Sharpie Mug! Affordable materials plus easy and quick to make! 

     Not bad for a first time sharpie mug huh?

Materials needed and cost:

Sharpie Permanent Markers - (fine point) - P36.50 pesos each at National Bookstore
White blank coffee mugs - P25 pesos retail and around P22 pesos for wholesale
Microwave oven - well you can check out your nearest appliance center but I guess P3000 pesos up would get you a good brand. 

    Materials Needed


Draw or doodle whatever design you have in mind. I used a quote from RUMIs' poem as a test because I figured texts are much easier to do. 

"it is your road and yours alone. others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you." - RUMI

Put it inside the oven at 350*F.

Heat for about 30 minutes and let it cool inside the oven for about 10 minutes or more. 

*be careful though cause it is really hot!* 

Stay tuned for more of my personalized/diy gift ideas! 


By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!
