Here is a super easy project for you - a custom mug! A great idea to give as a gift and it doesn't have to stop at a mug; you can personalize anything ceramic from a mug to a whole set of plates with just a sharpie. Draw your design on your mug and set it in the oven. Then turn the oven to 400 degrees, allow the mug to heat up with the oven and leave it in there for about 30 minutes. After the time is up, turn the oven off and let your mug cool down for at least 15 minutes. And then viola! You have a one of a kind mug!

Note: If you mess up, don't sweat! Just get a Q-tip and some nail polish remover and it'll rub right off.
