DIY Upcycled Coasters

Hi folks!!!

 I am back again  and I miss you all. I admit its been a long time that I posted anything on this blog. I know I have to post frequently but things were a bit crazy. Anyways from now on you will be seeing more of me. I have lots of DIY and decor inspirations to share so let move on.

Today the old coasters are getting a new look with this simple DIY you can do at home for few bucks. I had these wicker coasters for a while and I liked them too. I like anything  wicker for the style and intricate design . But the coasters lacked some color and now I hardly use them . So the DIY  thought came to pep them for some color inspiration on the wall and here we go.

Things you need:

1.Wicker coasters

2. Acrylic paints

3. Small mirrors (You can get from any craft store for under  $3)

4. Craft glue , Paint brush , Craft Paper and Scissors

1. Start by painting the wicker with the color you choose and let it dry. I choose Electric Pink and Cadmium Yellow.

2. Also glue the craft paper that goes well with the color. Let dry.

3. Glue the mirror.

4. Voila a super easy wall decor . Hang it anywhere for a fresh look this summer.

Happy Weekend

Hi there!

How are you guys doing? Hope you all had fun with Diwali celebrations last week. This week I was a super busy running here and there, shopping for my little kids birthday, doing DIY stuff, decorating….ahh. I am totally tired and yet there is lot more to come..:).

The weather here is turning bad. The Autumn will be gone soon and just as those lovely colors fade away, winter will bring snow and all kinds of stuff I hate. And I wait eagerly for the next season to arrive. Anyways today I am finding little warmth with simple vignette styling at home.

The flowers and low candle flame are doing the job well. The Lord Krishna and Radha are having some intimate time too. Have fun and enjoy your weekend.

Things you will need:
1. Clay diyas.

2. Acrylic craft colors.

3. Metallic gold color.

4. Brushes

5. Glue and beads (optional).

Paint the diyas with the color you like. Let them dry for 10 mins or so. They dry up really quick. Next give them a gold outline for designs like petals, leaves and stems etc… Let them dry and glue some colorful beads if you wish. I left mines without attaching beads as they looked simple and elegant.
That’s it you are done.

Things you need:

  • Used bottles
  • Acrylic paint
  • colorful beads
  • Yarn or string
  • Lace
  • Glue and
  • Scissors

How to do it:

First paint your bottles with the color you like. Let them dry. Now apply glue to  one end of the lace and put it on the middle of the bottle joining the other end. Do the same for the neck of the bottle. Take a string or yarn and tie a knot holding the bottle neck. Insert some colorful beads and repeat the process. That’s it you are done.
