DIY Quickie: Quote Mug

Just a quick little diy project for your Tuesday afternoon.

1. Start with blank slate mug.

2. Write a favorite quote in permanent marker.

3. "Frankly, my dear... I don't give a damn."
(Rhett Butler is my homeboy.)

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes to set.

This was fun.  And easy.  I did it while sitting on the couch wrapped up in a fuzzy green blanket and watching Law & Order: SVU.  Best of all, this project cost me like $1.50.  (The mug was a clearance find at Wal-Mart.  And who doesn't have a Sharpie?)  I'm definitely going to make more of these with other favorite quotes. :)

I was inspired by the Jane Austen inspired mugs in the Brookish shop on Etsy:

What would you write on your mug?

I absolutely love this. I think it would be great to give as party favors - cheap AND you can personalize them - fabulous.

What a creative idea!!! I would either put

"wheresoever you go, go with all your heart."
(random quote i've always loved!)


“The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes – and ships – and sealing-wax –
Of cabbages – and kings –
And why the sea is boiling hot –
And whether pigs have wings."

(my favorite passage from alice in wonderland!)

How many times have you washed it in the dishwasher since? Thanks!

just wondering if this lasts when washing? have you seen any difference after washing by hand or after setting in the oven?

Tried this and it washed right off and baking and completely cooling. Sharpie does not work. Sorry :( You could go to a craft store and get a ceramic/porcelain marker. Those are supposed to work.
