DIY Color-Blocked Coasters

I have been on a color-block kick lately (see here) so when I saw these cork coasters for a bargain I knew there was potential for a craft project.

Using painters tape and a handful of acrylic paint I created these bright and fresh coasters. They are perfect for a summer party or just to liven up your coffee table.

Now I must warn you, be careful while painting! I had a little mishap and paint got all over our carpet…and myself. With a bit of acetone we were able to get out the paint, but let me tell you – there was a bit of drama! Luckily, these cute coasters were worth it.

DIY Color Blocked Magnets

Ian and I have accumulated a collection of magnets from our travels. They are a cheerful reminder of our trips and help brighten up our fridge. Unfortunately, our tendency to purchase fragile magnets mixed with our clumsiness has sent a handful to the magnet graveyard.

Recently, I noticed we were in need of a few more magnets and decided to make a fun DIY project out of it. With a bit of tape and paint I was able to create these geometric wooden magnets!

They add a pop of color to our fridge plus they are wooden – so they won’t break if they fall on our kitchen floor! Score!

To make these yourself pick up a pack of wooden furniture knobs and magnets from your local craft store. Use tape to create straight lines, paint, let dry and repeat. Once your magnets are dry superglue your magnets to the back of the wooden knobs. Let dry for 5 minutes then you are ready to place them on your fridge!
