  1. Very nice idea. I wonder though if it would be easier/cheaper to cut your design out of acetate sheet or any thin plastic (or even stencil material) and just stencil it onto the wooden item? That wouldn’t require contact paper or using up vinyl (pricey I feel..). Thanks for the wonderful idea/inspiration!

    • Hi Caylie, I cut a stencil out of vinyl using my Silhouette…I found the deer head image with a google search, I believe, and used the trace function in Silhouette Studio to trace the image.

    • Hi Rita, I like using vinyl (or sometimes I use contact paper, which is cheaper) because I’m able to customize my design and it gives me crisp, clean lines. You could easily purchase a stencil at the craft store and do the same thing – just be careful not to put too much paint on at one time so the paint doesn’t bleed under the stencil. But using a store bought monogram or other stencil would be a great way to make these coasters too!

I freely admit that I am not the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my unoriginality I can provide some inspiration to you, too! Read More...
