5 Resin Craft Ideas: Perfect for keeping or gifting

There is no time like the present to get creating with resin. Whether you are new to resin art or a veteran looking for inspiration, get ready for some fabulous resin craft ideas! 

Those of us who have been working with resin for awhile all have a go-to resin project. We love it, we have perfected it, and we will keep on creating it. But, we are also always looking for something fun and new to try and enjoy swapping ideas. The possibilities of creating with resin are nearly endless. This means it can also be a bit overwhelming. So, to help narrow it down for you, we have assembled five of our favorite resin craft ideas.

5 Resin Craft Ideas

There are so many amazing things that you can do with resin. You can create beautiful jewelry and tumblers (those are whole other posts in themselves!) or use Artist Resin to protect and enhance your art work. You can start with simple items and work your way up to the complex. It is so hard to choose just a handful of projects to focus on. But, choose we must so here are five of our favorite resin craft ideas!

1. Decorative Wooden Tray

Taking a simple wooden tray and making it something fabulous is one of the simplest resin crafts you can do! If you have an old tray laying around you can use this technique to give it new life. Or, you can keep an eye out for discounted wooden trays when you’re browsing the stores or rummage sales.

Decorative wooden trays are wonderful for displaying items in your home, serving your guests, or giving as gifts. You won’t need much more than a  wooden tray, some Counter Culture DIY Artist Resin, and some of your favorite dispersion colors to create a beautiful piece!

Wedding flowers, arrangements received at graduations or the births of children, the list goes on and on. Preserving  precious floral memories in Counter Culture DIY Artist Resin allows you to display and treasure those important moments!

3. Glitter Wine Glass

Counter Culture DIY glitter can be used for so many projects. Making this pretty resin craft is one of the easiest and (ahem) most useful! Glitter wine glasses are great for special occasions and presents (think wedding party gifts!) but are also perfect for everyday use. With a few ingredients and a little bit of time, you’ll be able to make a plain wine glass shimmer and shine!

4. Vinyl Record Coaster

Coasters are some of the most versatile resin crafts out there. This is because you can make them out of so many things. If you can imagine it, you can do it!  Vinyl record coasters are a unique option and great for themed parties or as gifts for music lovers. The best part is that you don’t need to tear up any actual records to do it! This project involves a few more items than our previous suggestions but it is still simple and you can customize them which makes them so unique.
