Buy a $1 plate at the discount store and transform it into gorgeous custom dishware

Imagine if you could transfer your creative ideas and doodles onto a permanent surface and continue to enjoy your creation for a long time to come. Well, that reality is now here with these tutorials on how to create crafts with Sharpie pens. From dinnerware to planters, the only limits are your imagination.
So, let's get ready to take a look at some of the most inspiring posts showing us how to use Sharpies in a whole new way. Any of these ideas can also serve as great gifts this upcoming holiday season, and you can also incorporate your own current color scheme and style into any of these great projects.
1. Bright, colorful markers bring out beauty in plain bowls
These ceramic bowls and containers made by Brit & Co. use regular permanent marker-style Sharpies in bright, cheery colors. The design is just delightful, but you can also practice different patterns if you like.
Also, there is a process to make the marker permanent, and washing instructions to follow as well to keep your creations looking bright and new.
2. Custom-made planters with just two simple steps
These adorable planters from DIY Candy are super easy to make. This is the same technique used to create ceramic mugs, but instead on a flower pot. You also don't have to use the typical methods to make the paint permanent because you aren't going to need to wash these as frequently as you would any projects involving food or drinks. All you need are letter or shape stickers and an oil-based Sharpie.
3. You'll heart how easy these mugs are to make
Brendid made these lovely mugs with a sweet theme. If you're nervous about making a perfect heart, don't worry. You actually use the handle of the mug to create the stencil yourself, so the heart forms just right every time. These custom-made mugs are permanent when you use Sharpie oil-based paint pens and follow the instructions to keep everything in place for a nice, long time.
4. Gift for teacher or just about anyone who likes coffee
Designer Trapped shows us how to create this colorful dotted monogram mug as a present for a teacher. Of course, you can create this mug for anyone in your life, or even yourself. The unique design will make this mug stand out in a good way and will also be a one-of-a-kind gift. You can even choose different shapes for the center to get really creative with it.
5. Rustic chic dinnerware with permanent marker accent
This plate from The Sweetest Occasion was created using regular Sharpie permanent markers and a stencil.
The pattern is simple and sweet and is the perfect complement to the rustic wood slice placeholder under it. There's no way anyone would think this plate was made using a Sharpie marker!
