Head to our favourite A Beautiful Mess blog for another great home diy project. Today our pick is a tutorial to make alcohol ink patterned resin coasters.

It’s a great easy project with wonderful unique results. The materials are easy to get hold of and it would be a simple effective way to produce lots of great little gifts (for teachers gifts, stocking fillers, house warming presents) or to create something unique for your own home.

Colours can be adapted according to taste and style. We love the idea of using a metallic ink like this gold one from Jackson’s , but plenty of internet based stores offer a variety of colours and pack sizes. You will also need an Epoxy Resin and Hardener Kit, gloves and a resin coaster mould.

Browsing the West Elm website this week for Christmas ideas we came across this lovely collection of items for the home. Their Pop Art print features across four products – coasters, plates, cushion and dining chair, and by chance they are all in sale.

This quirky retro print will look great in a minimal home, injecting a bit of colour and pattern.
