This DIY is easy with super fun {and personalized} results! I shared the how-to on Studio5 in Salt Lake City–scroll down to watch the clip and for some tips.

I shopped for mugs at thrift stores and picked up a few at Target.

Studio5 is such a FUN morning show. I wish I lived closer! Brooke is the best.

How cute is this teacher gift? Tell her {or him} she’s the sweetest and fill with her favorite candy.

Personalize a mug or vase for mom and fill with fresh flowers.

For a bridesmaid or dear friend, how about their initials with nail polish and tools?

Ceramic mugs or other pieces
Windex wipes or something to clean away dirt and get the surface clean
Oil-based sharpies–I prefer fine tip. Make sure they’re oil based! I found these at Michaels Craft Store.

*Practice your design on paper first
*Keep it simple and  sweet
*Consider adding a scalloped edge around the bottom
*Let the pen wobble a bit–it’s hard to keep the pen completely straight
*Use a q-tip and nail polish remover to clean away errors
*Set mug in oven, let oven heat to 350*, bake for 30 minutes, then let oven cool with mug still inside
*hand wash
