20+ DIY Sharpie Projects


I’m a little late to the Sharpie DIY world, I’ve been seeing bits and pieces here and there, even went on a hunt for a “ceramic” one – one day in Michael’s.  Even they didn’t know what I was talking about (now I’m thinking there probably isn’t one – and people just use the regular type).  But whatever the case, I’m kind of liking all the sharpie DIY’s out there.  Like who knew.  For someone who thinks they have a huge radar scanner, these ones sort of were in stealth mode.  Here’s 20+ of some faves.
