Link Love: Sharpie Crafts


First, a confession: I’m obsessed with office supplies. Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples—these are my toy stores. Therefore, when I first started seeing these spectacularly easy sharpie crafts, I just about died from the explosion of possibilities. I am a permanent fan. Get it?

Apparently, when you write on ceramics with sharpies and bake them in the oven, the surface is safe for food! One of my favorite examples of the sharpie technique is this Wooly Willy Plate on AllFreeKidsCrafts. I’m also a big fan of these Rainbow Watercolor Boxes from FaveCrafts.

It’s also extraordinarily easy to tie-dye fabrics with sharpie! Even kids can get in on the action and make their own tie dye t-shirts will all sorts of psychedelic designs. In fact, wearables are some of the best sharpie crafts out there. From shirts to shoes to lovely necklaces, this roundup makes it easy to accessorize with simple materials and sharpies.

    I have a passion for Sharpie’s. I love every color and now I will have to get more to make some of these projects. Really neat ideas! Thank you!

    I work with residents in a retirement home. We have a very limited budget for activities. I loved the box art. The price is right. You can make something really fun and attractive even if with limited dexterity.

    Thsnk you so much for sharing.
