Monogrammed Sharpie Mug
Use oil based sharpies (the regular ones do not work) to add decorative initials to a mug. Buy letter stickers at your local craft store. Attach the stickers to your mug and use the sharpie to outline the letters. You can also use a stencil to achieve a unique design on your mug around the letters. When you’re all done, peel the stickers off (make sure you let your design dry). Fill your personalized mug with candy, or hot chocolate mix.
