Cork Coasters DIY

 Photographer: self. Model: Kia Turner
Here is a quick and easy DIY to do on a lazy weekend... 
Supplies: cork circles (I found mine in the floral section at our local craft store), fabric, paint.
Pantry Supplies: craft glue, scissors, and paint brushes.
You can either paint your coasters, apply fabric, or both! If you're planning on painting them, I suggest painting them a base coat of white. Even if you're planning on covering the entire coaster with another color, the white base coat makes the other coats, despite the color, really pop. Once you've done that, give it a design! I'm a free handed style painter myself, but feel free to tape off selected areas if it makes you feel more comfortable. If you want fabric covered coasters simply apply craft glue to the top of your coaster, (I used a paint brush to make it an easier applicant). Then, slowly press fabric onto the coaster, making sure there are no wrinkles. Once it's dry, cut off the excess!
This would be a lovely house warming gift for any sweet friend of yours. 

Today we're looking forward to loft hunting, coffee breaks, and getting inked for the first time. Wish me luck! I'll be posting a photo or two on instagram (user name: sincerelykinsey) if you want to see a sneak peek of our newest endeavor.
Hope your weekend is off to a lovely start. xx
