This Bunny Sharpie Mug is an easy DIY craft project that also makes a perfect Easter gift idea for your favorite tween or teen.
I think we can all agree that Easter gets a fist bump for being the cutest holiday. What’s not to love about bright pastels, bunnies and chicks? Now that I have a house full of teens, Easter baskets are not “chill” with them. Do like how this cool mom used that modern teen lingo. I am sure if my kids are reading this, they are cringing right now. Anyway, it’s not that they don’t like the contents I fill the baskets with, it’s just that they have outgrown the Easter basket itself. I made this adorable Bunny Sharpie Mug to serve as the vessel for their Easter swag this year.
If you read my Washi Pen and Pencil Holder post last week, you know that I have an undying love for pens and markers. It’s really an obsession. Yep, Sharpies rock! I put some of those Sharpies to good use in making this easy Bunny Sharpie Mug.
Here are the supplies you need!
White Mug (I found mine at the dollar store)
Before beginning, I cleaned the entire mug with some rubbing alcohol so both the stencil and paint adhere to the mug. I cut out a bunny stencil (which I had my daughter draw for me) using my Silhouette Cameo. I used stencil paper which has a tacky backing and sticks right on the mug. If you do not have a Silhouette, that’s OK. Grab some stencil paper at the craft store to cut and trace the bunny. While you are there, grab some stencil adhesive also to position the bunny on the mug.
Now, start dabbing the perimeter of the bunny with Sharpie dots. I started with pink. I then added green and purple as accents. Make sure you let each coat of Sharpie dots dry. Once you are done adding the Sharpie dots, turn your oven to 350 degrees. Place you mug on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely. I recommend hand washing your mug.
As I said before, this mug makes a fun Easter gift idea for the teen or tween in your house. Here are some fun ideas to fill up your Bunny Sharpie Mug.

I’m sure your teen or tween will be hoppy (see what I did there) to have one of these fun mug gifts. It’s a great way to add an Easter smile to their face.
