20+ DIY Sharpie Projects

By poppytalk |

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.

    I tried to find the ombre bedding — wish the link went directly to the post rather than taking me to the magazine. When I search the magazine for ombre or sharpie, I still can’t find the project. :(

    Also, on a side note to Babble coders, I rarely click to this site because the slideshows require the whole page to reload, and then you have to scroll down to get to the slideshow again.It feels really clunky. I like the posts and the ideas, but the user interface is a big turn-off.

    Sara – it’s in the magazine only there is no real link. you have to buy the magazine – sorry about that.

    Have to agree that the design is pretty clunky. That, and decorating with Sharpie is pretty tacky.

    Technetium – Thanks – the tech people are working on the “clunky” – and re decorating with sharpies is tacky – Do you think so? I really love the look of some of them (I guess it’s an art school thing) – plus it’s just super fun!

    Would you please offer the option to see the 20 projects shown (and future ones too) all on the same page? Reloading the page then scrolling down is quite a nuisance and waste of time.
