Harry Potter Mug

About: I am a crafty lil' librarian from Long Island. I spend most of my time in my own maker space working on various projects and blogging about it! I am very fond of Doctor Who, Harry Potter and of course, Star ...

I have seen a few tutorials for decorating ceramic mugs and I was finally able to try it! I can't believe how simple it is and the results look great. I had a hard time figuring out what to make and I knew I wanted to so something Harry Potter-ish so I ended up doing his head. I think he came out pretty snazzy.

Materials & Tools

White ceramic mug
An array of sharpie markers


Clean those mugs good! I used soap, water and a bit of windex
Think of something super neato to put on your mug
Start drawing your design. Its ok if you make a mistake! Break out that windex and wipe away the oops.
Now you can bake 'em! DO NOT PRE-HEAT! The ceramic is very sensitive to temperature. So stick them in the over THEN turn the over to 350 *
Set a timer for 30 minutes. After the timer is done, turn the oven off let' the mugs cool.
Then enjoy!
F.Y.I. best not to put them in the dishwasher or microwave
