We started our project with plain, white mugs. You could choose a different color, but a light color would be best. You will also need some silhouette stickers and some ceramic and sharpie markers.

Place the silhouette sticker on your mug and begin to outline and draw a design around the sticker. Here's where your creativity can flow!

I love the look of black and white but I also thought it would be great to incorporate gold, so I used a gold marker to add small touches. You may have another fun accent color that you want to try.

Once the marker is good and dry, remove the sticker. To set your design, place your mugs on a tray in the oven. Heat to 350. Once it reaches the temp, leave your mugs in for 30 mins.

      Shirley Black Maloy - with the oil sharpies, do you bake them in the oven to set them? Thanks.
