DIY Floral Mouse Pad for Spring

Refresh your desk for spring with this diy floral mouse pad! Spring is officially here my friends, which means it’s prime flower season! And why not keep some of those flowers on your desk for months to come? In less than an hour you can have yourself a brand new mouse pad that isn’t ugly or a basic/plain color. All you need is your favorite fabric and a few inexpensive supplies. Here’s how:

Time: 30 minutes + dry time
Materials: fabric mod podge, cork round, fabric, scissors, sponge brush

Refresh your desk for spring with this diy floral mouse pad!I’ve made a cork mouse pad before, didn’t like the wear of the spray adhesive after 6 months (caused some discoloring on the black fabric). Fabric Mod Podge is a much better glue for this project! I picked up the fabric from Minted. The heavier the better so that the glue doesn’t bleed through.

Refresh your desk for spring with this diy floral mouse pad!Cut your fabric to fit your cork round, leaving about 2″ of overhang. Apply glue to cork and smooth fabric on top. Fold the excess fabric over the edge, smoothing underneath. I chose to hide the extra fabric under ribbon so the bottom is completely flat (no fabric). You could also glue a second cork round to the bottom, placing the extra fabric in-between if you didn’t want it to show on the bottom.

Let dry overnight before using and that’s it!

Refresh your desk for spring with this diy floral mouse pad!Much better than a store bought mouse pad, don’t you think? Plus I can’t get over the colors + flowers for spring!
