After spying a great little DIY craft project on PInterest recently, using of all things, a common household Sharpie Permanent Marker Fine Tip 8 Pack. I was super impressed at the simplicity of using the sharpie to add interest to your household objects and spruce them up, with a 12 year old who has a fascination for all things crafty, not to mention me with my love of all things creative, our house is always full of colourful Sharpies, in fact I would have to say, every time we go the the stationary supply store we almost always come out with a new colour sharpie or two.
So today I thought I would share with you my top 10 favourite Sharpie projects in my ‘to do’ list for the future.
No. 1 Is a fantastic lace style doodling on a lampshade base from Better Homes and Gardens taking something from simple to extraordinary.
No. 3 Buy a simple white inexpensive teapot and custom decorate it for a unique talking centrepiece when you have guests over.
No. 5 This little DIY Sharpie project would be great if you have the right penmanship, and the dinnerware is great too...
No. 6 This tile artwork is amazing and the impact is just fantastic, I am a big fan of split images that work together.
No. 7 I love the simplicity of this idea using black polka dots on a white vase to create contrast and impact.
No. 9 This simple homemade gold Sharpie decorated candle is a really simple idea.
No. 10 had to be the project that started this fascination with Sharpie based projects, a personalised coffee cup. I love the simplicity of this idea and have no doubt that buying a plain ceramic cup for my daughter to have fun with will be so cute. I found quite a few projects using this concept but my favourite is one that used letter stickers and dots as I would not trust my handwriting to give the effect needed to achieve the results in project No. 5.
Hope the above has inspired you to grab a Sharpie Permanent Marker Fine Tip 8 Pack and have some fun, I will certainly be having a little crafty time with my daughter with some of these ideas and maybe she will even let me borrow some of her Sharpies if I need a colour different from my own little stash.
