Super Quick and Easy Valentine Gift

super easy decorated mug for valentines day

These are super quick and easy gifts to make this week for a teacher, co-worker, friends, whomever.   It's the ol' Sharpie dots trick ;)


Start with a plain white ceramic coffee mug and the cut-out shape of your choice.  I'm using the ever popular heart.  You can cut your shape out of a sticker page or plain paper with a bit of glue stick lightly added to the back.

Select the Sharpie colors you would like to use.

Begin with one color and simply add dots around the edge of the cut out.  Then add more dots.

And add more and more dots, changing colors as you move away from the cut out.  Once you're happy with the amount of dots, remove the cut out and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

That's it!!  Once it's cooled, fill with your favorite candy and it's ready to give.
There are so many options for this technique.  My oldest made party favors for her friends using their initials on each cup.  What design would you do?

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
