DIY Boss's Day Mug

Happy Boss’s Day! If you plan on giving a small gift in appreciation to your boss, we have just the solution for you.


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • a plain colored mug
  • sharpies
  • rubbing alcohol
  • q-tip
  • oven



Decide on what you want the mug to say. Naturally, we deemed “Like a Boss” appropriate.



If you mess up, use the rubbing alcohol and q-tips to erase what you need. It comes off very easily so don’t worry about making mistakes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, set the mug on a cookie sheet and go ahead and place it in there while it’s preheating. This allows the mug to heat up gradually instead of putting it on a hot oven. This should allow the glaze from the mug to sort of melt so the ink will be less likely to rub off while cleaning.


It’s probably a good idea to hand wash the mug instead of in the dishwasher just to be safe. Now, just wrap it up and let your boss enjoy!
