Valentine's Day Sequin Resin Coaster | DIY Projects | Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch | How To





I've had the pink sequins in my drawer, for quite some time.  There are some green ones in there too.  I've been meaning to put them in a coaster, but you know how it goes.  Then, I had someone share their beautiful sequin coasters with me and I decided to incorporate my forgotten sequins into this week's Valentine's Day coaster!  Along with an earring from a different era, I think it came out quite pretty!



You will need:
Coaster mold: http://amzn.to/2jrgnGI
Resin:  http://amzn.to/2j6FY9y
Sequin:  http://amzn.to/2jrgxOk
A big silver heart:  try craft stores, your jewelry  box, or check 1985 😉



Here is the video tutorial:






Directions:
1.  Mix one ounce of resin, according to the package directions.
2.  Mix in sequins.
3.  Pour resin/sequin mixture into coaster mold.
4.  Pop bubbles with lighter.
5.  Cut off earring finding from heart earring.
6.  Drop the heart into the resin.  Allow it to cure for a little while, until you are sure nothing is floating.
7.  Mix one ounce of resin and pour it over the coaster.
8.  Pop bubbles and allow to cure.

That's it!  Once cured take it out of the mold and you have a beautiful coaster!

Goldfish Coasters | DIY Project | Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch | How To





Goldfish make a great snack and turns out, a great coaster too!!






You will need:
Goldfish crackers:  http://amzn.to/2jcVvnx


Here is the video tutorial:




Directions:
1.  Mix resin, according to the package directions.  You can start with one ounce.
2.  Mix in the goldfish crackers.  Make sure they get completely covered.
3.  Put them in the coaster mold.  If you have too much resin the goldfish will float.  Pop bubbles with your lighter and allow it to cure.  It doesn't need to completely cure, just enough so they won't float when more resin is added.
4.  Mix another ounce of resin and add to level out the coaster.
5.  Pop bubbles and allow to cure at least 12 hours and then you can remove it from the mold.

That's it!  Thanks for stopping by and remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!

DIY Mac and Cheese Keychain and Paperweight | Craft Klatch | Resin How To





Who doesn't love mac and cheese?  Why not immortalize it and turn it into a keychain, or a necklace, or a paperweight?!?!?!



You will need:
-  Resin:  http://amzn.to/2iV225D
-  Parchment paper:  http://amzn.to/2j9hR6A
-  Elbow noodles:  http://amzn.to/2ju8wK2
-  Orange pigment:  http://amzn.to/2jkxpDL
-  Yellow pigment:  http://amzn.to/2j9eZGC

-  Keychain blank:  http://amzn.to/2j9hid0

Here is the video tutorial:



Directions:
1.  Mix two ounces of resin, according to the package directions.
2.  I used two drops of orange pigment and two drops of yellow to get just the right color.  Then add a lot of noodles.  You want to mix the noodles until they are completely covered.
3.  Then scoop piles on parchment paper.  Small piles make perfect keychains and large piles make great paperweights.
4.  Use a lighter to pop any bubbles.
5.  Allow to cure a minimum of 12 hours before pulling off of the parchment paper.
6.  The paperweight is done, but if you want to make a keychain, you need to drill a small hole into small mac and cheese pile.  Then, add the keychain finding to it and now you have a keychain!

They are fun to have, or make great gifts for the mac and cheese lover in your life!
