DIY Snowman Sharpie Mug

To complete your Winter Wonderland place settings, add these easy DIY mugs to the table! Make them personalized and forego place cards--and have your guests take them home! 

We love making crafts that can be used and enjoyed over and over. These snowman mugs are just the cutest. I picked up simple white mugs from my local dollar store and used regular sharpies on these to create a simple snowman design. I added names on them for a personal touch, and so you know which mug belongs to whom. These are great for sipping on some warm Fannie May hot cocoa with some homemade snowflake marshmallows on top!

  • White mugs
  • Sharpies
  • Oven

Step 1:Wash your mugs and dry well. This removes any dirt or oils and helps prep your mug. Using sharpies, draw eyes, carrot nose and smile to start your snowman. For one mug I added a simple blue bowtie and the name. For the other, I added the some stick arms holding a little heart and the phrase “I melt for you” above the name.

Step 2:Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours. Let cool in oven for 1 hour to prevent cracking.

Step 3:Enjoy your delish Fannie May hot cocoa in personalized style this year!

*I hand wash my mugs to help them last longer, and so far the design is holding up well. Enjoy!
