We had a stocking stuffer party back in December that was tons of fun – we had 3 different projects for people to do, and a huge sale from one of our favorite jewelry artists, Vinca.
One of the free projects we had for people were these awesome cork coasters.
We started off with huge sheets of cork that we cut into 4inch x 4inch square pieces. (here’s a link to something similar to what we bought, but ours was flat//not a roll)
We then cut and painted them to have cute designs. We traced our shapes and designs with pencil, which worked best for us rather than free-handing everything, as we could erase as needed :). We attempted using paint pens but found that just a thin paint brush and white paint worked beautifully.
Cut ideas: circles, squares, triangles, hexagons, pentagons, state shapes, hearts, etc.
Paint ideas: polka dots, zig zags, simple lines, a simple little heart where your city is in the state, etc.
Tie 4 or 5 together and they make a super cute housewarming gift!
