I’d love to try and make some fun picture frames for pics of my grandkids!
I want to decorate a mug with the markers!
I would love to make some posters for my classroom with these Sharpies!
I’d love to make some decorations (possibly these succulent pots!) for my bridal shower!
I’d love to use the markers to make some DIY spring coasters and placemats.
I love this!! What dollar store did you get the pots from?? I want to try this exact tutorial!
I want to make a scrapbook of an upcoming trip with these markers.
The first thing I am going to do is tackle my wedding thank you cards
We have some vintage lamp bases that we can’t restore but still love the shape of so I think some Sharpie doodling in multi colours could be just the ticket to getting them out of the storage closet and back to lighting up some rooms!
My daughter and I are planning to do a whole Sharpie design wall in her bedroom. Thanks for the chance!
I would make an anniversary card with the colourful markers
The sharpies would be great for decorating plain brown paper gift wrap and bags! cheers
