Pinterest is an endless source of DIY ideas, and these patterned mugs and pitchers are a quick and easy project that would make a great holiday gift!
All you will need are plain ceramic mugs — you could also use a pitcher, a bowl or a pot — a gold permanent marker (any metallic color will work) and your oven.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, draw whatever design or pattern you like on each mug with the permanent marker. Finally, to set the marker, bake the mugs for 30 minutes. They will be extremely hot, so allow them to cool in the oven.
The permanent marker should now be set, and the mugs can be gently washed.
