DIY Your Easter With Sharpie

sharpie_71643

I’m sure we all know what Sharpie markers are, and we probably all have a stash of them in various colors and pen styles.  Since the introduction of the Sharpie marker in 1964, it has grown to so much more than just a simple office supply.

SharpiePacks

Thanks to my friends over at Sharpie, I received a couple packages to try out and have fun making my spring more colorful.  With Easter just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to DIY my family’s Easter celebration with the help of these fun colored Sharpies.

How cute is this ‘Happy Easter’ banner?!  The best thing is, it didn’t cost a dime to make and it will look so festive hanging up for our Easter dinner.  I used the Fine Point Sharpie Markers that I received plus a few simple things I had laying around the house.  I cut white paper to the size I needed, added my letters and colored them in, glued them to cardboard pieces cut to the same size as the paper, and added some hot glue and ribbon along the back to bring the whole thing together.

SharpieDishes.jpg

I think I am absolutely in love with the Easter dishes I created.  I headed to my local dollar store to find white dishes at a reasonable cost and luckily I was able to find enough to make custom dishes for my whole dinner table.  Once you are done decorating your dishes, there are two ways that you can make sure they’re ready for use at the table.  If you have oven-safe dishes, you can bake them at 250 degrees for 2 hours.  If your dishes are not oven-safe, you can coat them in a food safe shellac that you can find at most hardware stores (or online if you can’t find it locally).

The metallic Sharpies are perfect for writing on already dyed Easter eggs.  My kids and I tried out making shaving cream eggs as we’ll be making them large scale in about a week, and they wanted their names written on the one’s they dyed.  The metallic Sharpie really pops on the colorful backgrounds of the eggs!

No Easter dinner setup is complete without place cards, and you guessed it, Sharpie can help you there too.  I found some super cute printable designs and the fine point Sharpies were perfect for getting into the small spaces!

What will Sharpie inspire you to create this Easter?
