Apple Coasters

Have you ever wondered what to do with the white stickers that comes with every Apple product you buy? Use them to make Apple coasters!

1. You’ll need a foam sheet, a compass, a pair of scissors, a permanent marker and a white Apple sticker. 2. Cut around the apple to get rid of the transparent part and to separate the apple and the stem. 3. Use the compass and mark a circle on the foam sheet and cut it out. 4. Make lines from the center of the the apple and outwards and remove the stickers when you’re done.

I’ve also used this technique on coffee mugs, check out my Apple Mugs :-)


Felt Ball Mobile

Finally I got to make something out the felt balls I bought a couple weeks ago. I’ve made a felt ball mobile! Read more to find out how I did it :-)

Supplies: 2 sticks of driftwood, approximately 25 cm / 9.8 in long, 25 felt balls, white tread + a needle and a hook screw long enough to go through both the sticks. You can make your own felt balls, but that takes quite some time. I’ve bought mine at Søstrene Grene. 1. Start with the felt balls because that what’s gonna take most of your time. Tie a knot at the end of the thread and pull the needle through all five balls. Repeat this five times. Now there is no need 2. Screw the hook screw through both sticks. 3. Attach the hanging balls to the sticks using doble knots. That’s about it, now find a place to hang it!

I’m thinking of hanging this over my son’s bed, but he is sick at the moment, so therefore I had to shoot photos in the living room instead. The colored balls work great next to the white wall :-)


Tea Light Holders

Wood is fun to work with! I’ve made tea light holders from construction wood – learn how you can make your own!

Supplies: Construction wood 48 x 48 mm, a miter saw and a drill press. If you don’t have access to the these tools you can of course use a hand saw with a miter box and a power drill.

1. Start with drilling the holes for the tea light. Make sure that you drill in centre and not too deep. I’ve preset my press drill to stop when the hole is deep enough for a tea light to fit.

2. Saw off both sides of the hole. Here it is smart to saw right next to another piece of wood and to start sawing from the top and down, this way you avoid jagged edges.

3. At the end you might need to go over the edges gently with a sandpaper. Now insert the tea light and light it up!
