8 Coffee-Themed DIY Projects with Free Printable

Sharing is caring!

Man, do I love coffee. It’s a rainy day outside while I write this post, and a having a hot cup of coffee here with me feels perfect.

I’m not a coffee snob–I don’t care if it’s cheap coffee, or expensive coffee. It doesn’t matter if it’s french press or Keurig.  I will even reheat a cup of coffee in the microwave, which real coffee connoisseurs tell me is the ultimate coffee no-no.

My love for coffee started in college. My university was in a very small town, and the only place to go study besides the campus library was a small coffee shop.

By the time I was a junior, I was really tired of being in the library all the time, so the coffee shop became my new study joint.  At first I would get a mocha or a cappuccino, but pretty quickly that became too expensive.  Basic, drip coffee was the most frugal option–with lots of cream and sugar mixed in of course.

And the rest is history.

As an almost 36-year old, I now drink my coffee black, and typically have 2 to 3 cups a day. I would have more, but I take some medication that doesn’t do well with too much caffeine, so I have to limit it.

A hot cup of coffee though has become to me synonymous with relaxing.  If I’m sitting down to have a few minutes by myself with a book, tv show, or visiting with a friend, a cup of coffee completes the experience.

So as I enjoy my coffee during this rainy day today, I thought I would share with you 8 Coffee-Themed DIY projects I have rounded up from online.

First, Karen at Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza, is a self-confessed fellow coffee lover, and she created her own coffee bar.




To your coffee bar, you can add this cute printable from Taryn from Design Dining Diapers.




Cassie from Little Red Window doesn’t drink coffee, but her husband does.  She created this super cute jar to store his coffee beans in using her Silhouette machine.



I love these mugs Susan at Organized 31 made, just using a Sharpie!  That’s my kind of craft 🙂




Albion from Albion Gould created another great mug that every coffee lover needs.




Maybe you don’t drink coffee (why, I have no idea!), so here is an idea then for how to turn coffee into a yummy scrub from Malia at Yesterday on Tuesday.




And one more, if you love the smell of coffee . . . Try your hand at making a Peppermint Coffee Candle with this tutorial from Carrie at Lovely Etc.




For my own addition to this round-up, I created an 8 x 10 printable you can download for free.

This morning I was having a hard time figuring out how I needed to spend my day, and my honest thought was “I need to drink more coffee.”

More coffee is always a good option 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this coffee-themed roundup, now go grab yourself a cup!

Enjoy the projects....all on coffee....love it! I am also a reheater.....that isn't a word...I know....but coffee is too important to waste! I drink about 3 cups a day...and if I go out shopping with a friend, we usually stop for a cup or iced coffee. It keeps me away from sweets, as well. I just made a coffee (bar) really a space on top of my buffet in the kitchenette and was looking for something clever to either hang close to the space or put on an easel. Thanks so much. Fun ideas!
