I have discovered one of the greatest personalized gift and craft ideas that kids of all ages can make! I chose to title the craft "Sharpie Ceramics" because the process works for any object made of ceramic material. If you're looking for a simple and personal gift idea that will brighten anyone's day, Sharpie Ceramics are a great option.
Katie from Who Needs a Cape tells us how to make these amazing works of art in her post titled, DIY Sharpie Ceramic Mugs and Cups. I must give credit where credit is due, so head on over to Katie's post to see the exact process of how to create a personalized ceramic piece! (Katie only mentions mugs/cups in her tutorial, but the directions apply to all things ceramic.) To give you an overall idea, all you need are oil based Sharpie markers (see photo of the ones we used below), a ceramic item to decorate, and a conventional oven.
