DIY Mousepad8:14 AM
I've been working on some things for my home office and a mouse pad was on my list. This mouse pad is great because you can use any fabric you want and it can match your theme exactly. I wanted something that would match the black and white theme I'm creating and had extra fabric left from my cork-board I made last week. In total this craft cost me $1.00, I only had to buy the craft foam :)
What you need:
Craft Foam (try to get a thicker sheet if you can... if not you can double it up)
I used a burner cover for my stencil of how big I wanted my mousepad to be and traced that onto my craft foam.
I cut out my craft foam into the circle I traced
I cut out my fabric into that same circle, I did make the fabric circle a little bigger than my foam circle. This was I could trim off the ends and it would be a perfect fit. (If you have any wrinkles, make sure to iron them out)
I sprayed my adhesive onto the craft foam and then laid my fabric circle on top. It only took about a half hour to completely dry. Then cut around the circle, so the fabric fits perfectly!
This project only takes a few minutes, is cheap, and can add some chic-ness to your office :)
Now, I just need a desk!
