Here is a last minute gift for all the Star Wars loving geeky dads out there. Are you a Star Wars fan or maybe you just want a cool DIY Star Wars sharpie mug for your morning Joe. Then this is the place to learn how to make your own mug! I made this mug using a sharpie and a stencil I created using my Silhouette Cameo. I am also giving away a free SVG cut file to make this cutie! See below.
If you do not have a die cutting machine and still want to give something cool to dad. I am providing a couple of FREE Printables that you can use as a guide for your mug or just frame them and hang them for dad on his special day! How cool is that? First, let’s make a mug!

Silhouette Cameo Instructions:
Make your stencil by uploading the Silhouette Studio file provided below. The set measurements in SVG file of the helmet and wording are set to the ones I used on my mug. Use my size or resize the image for the mug you are going to use. Cut out your stencil on vinyl or contact paper. (Note: When using contact paper with the Silhouette Cameo use the vinyl setting).
When I use a stencil I first put the background of the stencil onto the mug.
Then add back each element as if it were one shape. This will ensure you get the shapes straight and in the right areas.
Then remove the areas to be stenciled. Heat up the contact paper with a blow dryer to ensure the glue would stick tightly to the mug before you started drawing with the sharpie. Smooth out any bubbles.
Gently draw with your sharpie and fill in the areas within the stencil.
Remove the stencil. Touch up any bleed throughs with alcohol and Q-tips or hand draw with a sharpie to correct mistakes.
After applying wait 24 hours. Then put your mug in a cold oven. Turn on oven temp to 425 degrees and set the timer for 30 minutes. When the timer goes off turn the oven off, leaving the project in the oven until it’s completely cool. Hand wash and/or do a test run in the dishwasher.
