December Craft Challenge – make or create something using cork.
This is the last craft challenge for 2016, if this is the first time you are visiting this blog here is the scoop on what has been happening over the last 12 months. On the Third Monday of every month, Amelia (my friend and fellow blogger) have done a project or post based on one chosen DIY craft or theme, then we share our results and hopefully have inspired you to join the challenge. (The links to my challenge results can be found at the end of this post).
Last month the challenge was to make a wreath or create something to hang on your front door for Christmas. I found a picture frame at one of my favorite thrift stores and spent one whole dollar on it so I could use the frame. The result is shown above.
This month the challenge was to make something using cork. On one of my many trips to my favorite thrift store I picked up a package of 12 plain cork coasters for $0.50
I hail from the East Coast of Canada where the nautical theme abounds. When I saw these free printables at Mod Podge Rocks Blog I decided to make my own so I could enjoy a bit of the East in the West. There is a full step by step tutorial over at Mod Podge Rocks Blog.
Here are the four prints I chose.
A set of four or eight coasters tied with some twine would make a great hostess or neighbor gift, at anytime of the year.
