This is a really great project to make with leftover denim. I was once given a piece of denim from my sister's old jeans to use for any craft that I make, and this is the one: denim coasters!
Step 1: Materials
What you'll need to make this coasters are...
- old denim scraps
- cork board
- X-acto knife
- hot glue gun
- black marker
- Decorations: 3D puff paint / gems / ribbon
Step 2: Prepare Cork Board
This project makes about 2 denim coasters. First, measure and cut out two (2) 4-inch squares of cork board.
Step 3: Add Denim Squares
From there, cut out 2 pieces of denim scraps the same size as your cork board squares and glue them together.
Step 4: Decorate
Once they're done, they're ready to be decorated! You can draw designs on the coasters with 3D puff paint (like I did here with flowers with rhinestones in the middle), and leave them out for the paint to set. You can also create a border with a few pieces of ribbon and a few gems glued to the sides of the board. Either way, you're the one in control of this upcycling project here!
Step 5: Ready to Use
Once everything is dry, they're ready to use! Make as many as you like as gifts or use them for your own house for decor!
