I wrote at different angles to add interest. You don't have to do black and white- oil sharpies come in a myriad of colors.

    Wow, THANK YOU! I've seen the Sharpie decorated items for a long time and thought it was such a neat, easy and inexpensive idea. I finally had ready to attempt a project....... Big fail! In NONE of the posts I read, and I did read several, did any of them mention OIL BASED (or paint pen) Sharpies...... Just "sharpie". My project didn't make it past the initial wash before gifting and it all rubbed off :(

      @Amy Dietz I made the same mistake my first time, too. Several gifts...how embarrassing;) Oh well, now we know, right!

    Cute idea ..However I read somewhere you need to bake it after you write with sharpie to keep it from coming off. I used a sharpie on a coffee mug and it is wearing off! I did not bake!

      @Lucy Fraser I did it with a regular sharpie and baked and it still washed off- that is why I recommend the oil based sharpie paint pens and baking to set it.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
