Cork Coasters

Let me first say that I dropped my daughter off at preschool half an hour ago.  I do not have to work.  I have no errands to run.  I am sitting at a coffee shop, drinking a warm cup of tea and writing.  WHAT?!?!?  I know...true mom bliss.  Aren't you jealous?  But now to the point.

After making a scrap wood bulletin board over the weekend (you can check it out here) I had some cork left over.  And I came up with a totally brilliant off the charts idea.  OK that is a lie, that is totally not what happened.  In truth I was glancing at the package and reading their list of suggested uses and totally stole this idea from there.  Ha!  You never know where your inspiration will come from.

The package said Coasters.  And since my husbands man-cave, also known as the basement, is lacking in the coaster department I thought "hey that is not a bad idea".  So I pulled together the left over cork and cut them down to coaster size.

How dark and creepy is this picture!  I thought it needed a little Halloween decor in the corner. 

This stuff is very easy to cut with a good pair of scissors.  Then I dug out a "D" letter stencil and a black sharpie and did exactly what you are thinking I did...

Sorry, am I overly random this morning?  It must be the tea and two hours of freedom.  I just don't know what to do with myself!

So yes, cork + stencil + sharpie = coasters for the man-cave.

Keepin' it simple and straight forward for you this morning.  Just how I like it!
