Write On Any Teacups With A Sharpie


So I've been wanting to do this project for quite some time since I saw it on Pinterest. & there was also a shop on etsy who made these similar vintage teacups with words but they were just too expensive plus international shipping because it's coming from the United Kingdom.

I found this white & gold vintage teacup at an estate sale & it was perfect for this project.

God knows I'm not an artist & I rarely freehand my handmade signs. This is where my Silhouette Cameo becomes my assistant. All I had to do was pick a font & the size I wanted & have my Silhouette cut the stencil for me. But if you can totally freehand your work then I'm completely jealous of you.

Because all cups are curved, in order to straighten your word out, cut small slits around the vinyl to manipulate it. Once you have your vinyl on the right place then fill it with your sharpie marker. When you're done peel off the vinyl and place your cup on a baking sheet. Bake it in a 350 degrees oven for 30 minutes. This will embed the marker onto the cup so the word won't come off and you can hand wash it after use.

This was a super easy project to do. Took me about 20 minutes minus the half hour of baking time. I love it and it looks chic.
