DIY Custom Painted Yoga Mat

Nama-slay your yoga practice with a mat that's so much more! A custom-painted yoga mat is a fun way to get artistic for an afternoon, and a fantastic way to express your own personal style every time you do your yoga workout. Okay, you might be thinking, but where am I going to find a paint that's flexible enough to stay on my mat between workouts and rolling it up and carting it around? We're so glad you asked! Tulip Soft Fabric Paint dries permanent, soft (hence the name) and flexible, so it's perfect for keeping up with your practice. Read on to see our creative flow, then get inspired to start your own!

DIY Portion Control Containers

If you've been on a fitness kick this year, you're not alone ... we've been trying to make better health choices too (in case you couldn't tell from all of our health and wellbeing posts lately)! Working out is one thing, but monitoring food intake and portions is quite another; it can get really tricky, which is why we came up with a fun way to make portion control easier - and of course more colorful. How did we do it? With a little help from Scribbles 3D Paint, of course! Read on to get inspired to create your own mealtime management system.

3D Paint Water Tracker Bottle

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things we can do for our bodies, and sometimes that can be a challenge if we spend a lot of time on the go, we work out a lot, or if we're addicted to drinking anything BUT water (more coffee, anyone?). A water tracker bottle you can haul around with you all day is one way to make it easier to get your daily intake of water - and the right amount too! Sure, you could buy one, but since we're fans of DIYing things around here, we think you should make your own instead. All you need is a simple water bottle and Tulip Dimensional Paint; read on to check out our version, then get inspired to make yours!

Let's be honest, the reason most of us work out is so we can eat more pizza, right?!?!
