Let’s allow our creativity to blend with our affection for coffee—and explore the auburn world of Coffee Art.
Coffee Stains and Spills
Author Richie Norton said, “You’ll find your message in your mess.” What better example of this than the surprising art made from coffee stains and coffee spills. Manipulating what is to others a mess, these artists use coffee as their inspiration and their medium.
“Coffee is, believe it or not, a very forgiving medium, as well as a very rough one. Happy little accidents waiting for a place to happen—let’s give in to them! If watercolours have given you a hard time before, coffee might be your perfect beginner’s level, as coffee behaves in the same ways, but is correctable,” says Illustrator Jenny Dolfen.
Coffee Beans Can Decorate Anything
They’re glueable, paintable, and they even smell nice. Crafters work coffee beans into coasters, candles, wall art, frames,and if you really want to keep coffee close to your heart, a locket full of coffee beans.
Burlap Coffee Bags
At our Cameron’s Coffee Warehouse Sales every fall and spring, we let visitors take the leftover burlap bags that our coffee beans arrive in.
What do you do with these rough sacks of raw material? Here are some rustically fantastic craft ideas.
Why all this output of coffee-themed art? We think it’s because coffee inspires us deep down inside. And how else do we express our affinity for the things we love, but to let our creativity shine through—and let our candles be coffee-scented and wrapped in burlap.
Come get your own burlap bags and great deals on Cameron’s Coffee (plus coffee tasting!) at our next Warehouse Sale!
