DIY Geometric Paperweights

Paper weights are a great way to dress your desk and add some colour to a boring office. Save your pennies and make your own at a fraction of the cost.  This idea mixes modern graphics, with bright colours.

Since not everyone is an artist, these give a pleasing result without too much difficulty ...


DIY Geometric Paperweights

All you require for this project is: 

  • Smooth stones
  • Masking tape
  • Acrylic pains
  • Paintbrush

Materials required

Simply stick the masking tape over the stones to create a clean edge when painting.  When the paint is dry in one area, move your masking tape over that edge to keep it clean and then mask another segment of stone and paint again.

Use masking tape to give clean edges

Leave one segment free of paint to show the stone
