DIY Ramadan Coffee Mugs with Sharpies

These DIY Ramadan coffee mugs with sharpies have never ending options. Make a few for each family member for iftar. Create gifts for loved ones for Eid. Or, and my favorite, capture your child’s drawing abilities on a mug. And make sure to check the supplies list because we’re using oil-based paint markers. Regular Sharpies just aren’t going to stay on.

Let’s start this off with all the notes. Regular sharpies aren’t going to cut it. They’ll just end up coming off – go with the oil-based sharpies. And please note the colors change once you bake them. Just like glazing pottery, the end result ends up being different sometimes. The baking directions are pretty specific, so make sure you read them to a T. We did a lot of research for these so it’s best to follow what we’ve outlined.

For this Ramadan craft we’ve got options for those who know how to draw, and those of us that can’t. So don’t fret, the entire family can get involved – printables at the bottom. We even think this is a great craft for teens this ramadan!

Lastly, cheap mugs work best because their glaze isn’t great, letting your Sharpie stay on better.

Supplies

Islamic Printable: Imam Ghazali Quote

Grab the kids and free draw! We vote it’s more fun to let the children draw out whatever they want, as opposed to using a stencil. It’s really fun to capture their age and abilities to draw through this craft. Another reminder about the colors – they will change in the oven. Just like the pottery glazes will shift colors in the fire.

For those of use that can’t draw, use our printable cutouts! You can either outline them with a solid line or dot around the images. This makes for a much nicer mug that looks way better than your freehand drawing.

If you’re using the printable cut outs, go ahead and take your time cutting them off. Next up, take some tape and adhere the images to the mug. What’s fun is we have a bunch of different images so you can make the mugs however you’d like. Then take your sharpie and dot around the image or outline them.

Here are the free draws from the kids and the adults. Obviously, one adult really knows how to draw! But check out how adorable the little ones are.

Here are the DIY Ramadan mugs with the dot images from the printable.
