Mug collector? Me, too. I have boxes and boxes of old mugs from college visits, vacations, and gift shops – all stowed away, no longer worthy of my crowded kitchen cupboards. But why relegate them all to the basement? Pull out a couple of plain white ones and grab a handful of Sharpies. With anything from inspirational quotes to Rueisms to your own made-up witty phrases, you can bring an old mug out of hiding and back to life. This one took about two-point-five seconds of effort (plus an easy 30 minutes of bake time).
Tip: If you make a mistake before you bake, use soap and water to wash off the marker. Make sure to always hand-wash your DIY Sharpie dishes.
