I have such a fabulous treat for you today! This project is an incredibly easy DIY for stylish entertaining and at the end, we will have ourselves a little Giveaway, yahoo! For those of you who are into gadgets and tech, the tool I used for this project is going to be a game changer. For those of you who don't feel quite so technically inclined, the 3Doodler 2.0 is as easy to use as any other writing instrument and you will be drawing your way to 3 Dimensional fun in no time! If you have ever been curious about 3D printers, this 3D printing pen is a much more affordable and easy to use option and you can create dimensional figures or objects with the simple push of a button. 5 minutes into using this pen, I was running through all of the possibilities at 90 miles an hour. If you have no idea what any of this means... this video gives a fabulous overview of what this tool actually does - and how!
I have been working on my dining room here at Casa de TDC, and with the addition of a new vintage table that is made of wood, coasters are something that have been on my mind. I tend to prefer a casual entertaining style so a monstera leaf shaped coaster is the perfect chic thing for summertime events or family game night.
To make your own, you will need...
Print out the template on a standard 8.5x11" sheet of paper. Follow the directions that come with your 3Doodler for loading the strands and turning the tool on at the proper temperature (hi or low) for the type of filament you are using. Push your slow button and extrude your material along the lines of your template. Once you have a relatively thick border outlined, you can begin filling it in with skinny lines running at an angle or in a more solid style if you prefer. Once it hardens in just a few seconds, pull your coaster off your paper carefully and scatter them about! That is it, so fast and super easy.
