Supplies:

Instructions:

Silhouette Cameo Instructions:

Make your stencil by uploading a Star Wars Dart Vader Helmet file. You can find one on Etsy! Next, set measurements in the SVG file of the helmet and wording so they are set to look like the ones I used on my mug.

Cut out your stencil on vinyl or contact paper. (Note: When using contact paper with the Silhouette Cameo using 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 sticks tightly to the mug before you start drawing with the Sharpie pen. Smooth out any bubbles.

Gently draw with your sharpie and fill in the areas within the stencil.

Using a stencil on a sharpie mug

Remove the stencil. Touch up any bleed-throughs with alcohol and Q-tips or hand drawn with a sharpie to correct mistakes.

After applying wait 24 hours. Then put your mug in a cold oven. Turn on the 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.

  1. So perfect for star wars dad’s. I love it!

  2. This is an awesome idea! Do you know if this method would work on regular glasses?

    1. I think sharpie may wash off of regular glasses. When you bake the mug it sets the sharpie into the finish. There is glass paint you could try. I would still hand wash it in case it starts to wear off.

  3. Cool project! I was wondering, how well does this mug look after a year? I have seen many Sharpie mug projects, but they always fade quickly.

    1. Hi Paulina, This one has only been washed and used a few times and then became a pen holder on my husbands desk, so I really don’t know how it will hold up for a year or so. It is one of his favs though. Glad you liked it, and thanks for reading.

  6. What a great gift idea – thanks for the inspiration! My dad and brother are huge star wars fans, so I’m off to the store to get the supplies…

    1. Glad you liked it! I think it would be a great gift anytime of the year, so many fans out there. Thanks for stopping by! Kim

  7. I’ve never thought about doing something like this with a Sharpie! It’s too late for me to do this for Father’s Day, however my husband’s birthday is coming up. This is such a cute idea!

    1. I almost didn’t make it, but then I realized it could great all year! Thank you for the sweet comment! I’m glad you liked it!

  8. I’m so in love with this! I grew up with Star Wars and I would want one of these for me :-)

    1. My husband & son are star wars nuts! Thanks so much for the love! :)

  9. This is fantastic! I’ve never thought of doing something like this with a sharpie! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you! I would of had to buy a dozen mugs to get one right, lol.

  10. so creative! My husband loves, is obsessed rather, with Star Wars. This would be great for him, but sadly I do not own a silhouette. We will see how a free hand approach works.

    1. You could always print it out on cardstock and cut out letters out with a x-acto knife. Then use it as a stencil. :)
