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.

home: made [ Christmas centre pieces ]

Make a Christmas table beautiful with the perfect centre piece. We’ve scoured the internet for ideas but the common theme is knowing you can use things from around the house or easy to obtain, to create one.

Gather old bottles, jars or a wooden box; use off cuts of tree, forage some holy or conifer branches; find ribbon, washi tape or torn paper found at home; use old paint samples or spray paint; find pebbles or stones; plus hand write or print festive text or guests names.
