Supplies for DIY Coasters
How to Make Coasters Using Washers
The design shown above uses 16 small washers and 9 larger washers, but you can use a variety of sizes depending upon the design you choose to create.
1. Put glue on back of washer
2. Place washer, glue side down, onto foam
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until all the washers are placed on the foam and in the desired design. The design used in the photo is simply a circle of washers. Start with a large washer in the middle, place 8 small washers around that and then a ring of 8 large washers next. Add 8 small washers as the final ring, placing a small washer in-between 2 large washers.
4. Let glue dry and then cut off excess foam board.
What do you do with old crayons that break, or those crayons that get left behind in the box because your daughter will only use pink and purple? One idea is to turn them into candles. This is a great way to upcycle crayons, whether they are old or new.
1. Use double sided adhesive to place wick inside the candle holder
2. Remove wrappers from crayons and break up crayon into smaller pieces
3. Put crayon pieces in a Dixie cup (one color per cup)
4. Add clear wax and scented wax to Dixie cup
5. Microwave wax until melted (about 2-3 minutes)
6. Stir wax with a toothpick
7. Gently pour the melted wax into the candle holder. If you use multiple colors in your candle, you need to let each layer dry completely before adding next color.
I love roses, but lets face it; They are expensive and they don’t last very long. So how about making your own so that they never go bad?
I love these duct tape roses. First, because they are super cute of course. But I also like this project because they’ve added a little light going up the stem of the rose. That makes it the perfect choice for a centerpiece for a romantic dinner, or family gathering. People won’t believe that you made these flowers with duct tape!
Decoupage is a fun and easy way to turn an old table into something special. With a little bit of paper and glue, you can transform a beat-up table into a one of a kind treasure. This technique is perfect for taking a piece of furniture from the thrift shop and turning it into a showpiece. You’ll love how inexpensive this is too.
Here are a few decoupaged tables to give you some ideas for the types of items you can use for decoupage.
What do you do with old t-shirts, bed sheets or curtains? If you have some extra fabric and you’re wondering how you can turn it into a great upcycled DIY craft, then these fabric coil bowls are something you’ll want to try.
This easy craft uses strips of fabric to build the bowl, and cord is used to hold it all together. It is simply a matter of wrapping the cord around the fabric strips to stitch it all together. For those who enjoy embroidery or sewing, this is a fun way to put your needle skills to use. I love this DIY idea because it is easy enough for crafters of any skill level.
Take a button-down shirt and transform it into a cute skirt. This DIY no-sew idea is perfect for getting twice the wear from a dress-shirt. Or, maybe you’ve gotten tired on wearing it as a shirt but you love the color or pattern? Now you can make it into a skirt with no sewing skills needed.
