40 Snazzy DIY Sharpie Crafts

Hey! Do you have Sharpies @home? If so, then you’ve got all to get started on a fun DIY project! There are lots of Sharpie DIYs you can try. We’ve found you 40 of them – from home decor, mugs, fashion, gifts to make and so much more.

It might amaze you, but most Sharpie projects actually do NOT look as if they’ve been DIY-d by markers at all! No, many of them look quite similar to watercolor or some type of paint. What makes them look fantastic is the colors naturally smooth and blend together. You can also make the colors either bold and vibrant or more soft and subtle, whichever you think would look best on the DIY project you are trying.

Watercolor style Sharpie projects are especially popular now. So we’ve included several of these. One of the best things about DIY-ing with Sharpies is that there is minimal worry about mess. So while the colors bleed and blend together, they will stay on your project and won’t go anywhere else.

Sharpie DIY projects are a fun project for either kids’ parties or get togethers with your grown-up BFFs when you want to do a craft project. Beginners can feel confident they will get great results, even when they are brand new to Sharpie DIY’s.

Take a look at the 40 projects we’ve found you. We know you will find a couple that you’ll want to get started with. Some of the projects may be more ideal for the more advanced DIY-er. But most can easily be done by a beginner DIY-er.

So, let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing!
