I'm sure most of you have seen the fun mugs and ceramics you can make using Sharpie markers...and this is very similar. It takes about 15 minutes to make and then you pop it in the oven to cure and you're all set!

What You Need for a DIY Sharpie Mug With Watermelons:

  • White Mug (this mug was $3 at Target)
  • Sharpies in light pink, dark pink , light green/lime, dark green/kelly green, and black
  • Half circle stencil/vinyl/other tracing

How To Create Your Homemade Watermelon Mug:

It's SO simple! Start by washing your mug well, and drying it thoroughly. From there, I added my half circle on the top of my mug and made sure it was positioned just right.

Once positioned, I traced my dark green layer around the half circle. Then I added a few lines around it to thicken that area up a bit. You'll find that even the least artistic person (me) can still free hand a simple line around the "rind" of the watermelon.

Once I had added the dark green area, then I used my pink to color in the center. I alternated dark pink and light pink centers for a little added flair.

After the pink in added, I drew in the lime green area and the black seeds.

SOOOO easy, right? I did this spaced out nicely four times around the top of the mug. You could always continue the pattern down more or do it around the bottom...lots of options. I tend to prefer simple designs, so I thought it looked cute just the way it was.

When you're done drawing on your mug you need to let it cure in the oven to ensure it doesn't wash off. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes and be sure to handwash only!

The only real question is, how many of these cute DIYs are you going to make?
