I have a confession to make, I am a Sharpie hoarder. I know, I’m not proud. I have at least 30 Sharpies of different colors around my house right now. I’m not sure where they all came from, but I do know that it’s probably a bigger collection of Sharpies than any one person needs from a practical standpoint.
However, from a CRAFTING standpoint, my out-of-control Sharpie collection is a goldmine! :-) Using Sharpies is an easy, mess-free way to add a splash of fun color to any DIY or craft project. Sharpie crafts have been pretty popular this year, so I thought it was high time to do a roundup of some of my favorite projects that utilize my favorite marker!
