DONUT miss these DIY projects...

SUPER funny, I know. ;)

Donuts are flooding the DIY world at the moment! I'm not really sure what brought on this trend, maybe a different take on the oh so popular Pineapple? Or maybe we owe this trend purely to the amazing Studio DIY? Who knows? What I do know is how freakin' cute they are!
Check out these awesome projects.

D.I.Y. Stencil Coasters


With the weather getting cooler down here in Sydney there is nothing better than snuggling up with a hot drink. These stencil coasters are super easy to make and I think they look pretty awesome. :) I'm a little stencil obsessed at the moment. I LOVE my KNK Zing and I've been making a bunch of stencils. These are the same designs as I used for my last project. Wood block memory game. If you don't have a fancy cutting machine like my magical Zing you can get some great stencils from Craft and Scrapbooking stores now. 


You will need
Stencils
Cork coasters
Paint
Sponge brush
Sticky tape

Step 1
Put your stencil over the coaster.
You can use some sticky tape to hold the stencil in place.


Step 2
With a small amount of paint to your brush, apply a few coats over the stencil. If you have to much paint on your brush it will bleed under the stencil.


Step 3
Peel the stencil from the coaster and admire your work. 




I love the simple effect of these stencils. What do you think? 
What have you made with stencils?

Crafted Weddings - Custom Maps

I love the idea of a custom map. They make such a nice addition to your wedding stationery. I hunted around on Etsy and found some amazing ones, so naturally I had to share them with you. :)
