I love making crafts but I am not the most artistic person. (Seriously, my kids are better at drawing with pencil and paper than I am.) When I set out to make a new project I have to figure out easy hacks to make it look professional without taking too much talent.
There are thousands of beautiful Sharpie paint pen projects online but most of them require free hand lettering or drawing skills. I simply cannot make those projects without them looking like they were created by a preschooler.
My easy Sharpie projects (including heart handle mugs, a love letter catch all tray, and a custom serving tray with glasses) all use simple hacks like tracing, stencils, or DIY stampsto create picture-perfect DIY projects, no artistic skills needed!
Custom Pint Glasses
This custom Sharpie pint glass project uses a DIY stamp to decorate the glasses. It's a simple stamp to create… it's as easy as carving a potato stamp for a kindergarten art project.
Sharpie Pint Glass Supplies
- Clear Pint Glass: British-style pint glasses have a distinct shape that is marked with a tiny crown. I buy clear pint glasses at my local dollar store or use this affordable glass set for a low cost Sharpie craft.
- Oil-Based Sharpie Paint Pens: You'll need red and gold paint pens to create these designs. Fine and medium tips work best.
- Pencils: Use pencil erasers to make the tiny heart stamps, if desired.
- X-Acto Knife: Use the X-Acto to carve the eraser (see directions below)
Sharpie Pint Glass Directions
1. Prepare the glasses.
Remove all labels then wash and dry the pint glasses. Wipe the surface to be painted with rubbing alcohol or vodka to remove any oil from your hands. Allow to dry.
2. Make a mini heart stamp.
Draw a tiny heart on the eraser of a new, unused pencil. Use an X-Acto knife to carve out the heart.
Use a marker or stamp pad to ink and test the eraser stamps while carving. This shows the shape of the heart.
3. Stamp the glasses.
- Coat the top of the eraser stamp with the Oil-Based Sharpie Paint Pens. The paint should be thick but not dripping.
- Press the eraser firmly against the glass. Do not push too hard or the hear shape will distort Repeat until the desired number of hearts has been stamped.
- To change colors, wipe the eraser clean with vodka or rubbing alcohol.
- Used a fine point Oil-Based Sharpie Paint Pen to write a messages if desired.
- Mistake can be removed with rubbing alcohol or vodka.
4. Bake the glasses to set the paint.
Allow the glasses to dry for at least 20 minutes then place in a cold over. Heat the oven to 350 degrees, turn on time to 20 minutes, and allow the glasses to cook. Turn off the oven and allow the glasses to cool before removing.
Note: The glasses should be hand washed to make the design last longer. Do not decorate the inside of the glass or any parts of the glass that will come into contact with your mouth.
