A mojito, a glass of cold tea or a well-loaded coffee. Whatever you drink, don’t spoil your table. Use a coaster! We nuance: Use nice coasters! Every detail counts in decorating your home and coasters are a good opportunity to get creative. Wood, cork, tiles… even leather! Everything can be turned into a coaster. Watch out for these 10 DIY ideas 😉
1. A MINIATURE LOOM
A little wonder to start with. How are you at knitting? These homemade coasters are made with the help of a miniature loom, made of cardboard and white thread. They are not the easiest to make, but the result is spectacular…
2. ROPE COASTERS
Much easier, but also very beautiful, are these coasters made with rope. To make them, you just need a piece of string – this was pretty obvious – a bit of eva rubber to create a non-slip base and a heat-set gun. We love rope crafts !
3. AN AUTUMN TOUCH FOR THE TABLE
Another unusual material to make coasters: leather. Doing these is as easy as cutting out, using a template as a base, a nice piece of leather. In this case, they have chosen a super-typical motif, perfect for putting hot tea on top.
4. COASTERS WITH COLORFUL BEADS
We proposes these super-colored coasters to protect your tables. They are made with perler beads , plastic beads with which you can form any type of figure. Once joined on a plastic base, you have to iron them to join, creating things as cool as this. Emojis, flowers, fruits … you can do everything!
5. MARBLED COASTERS
Marble is a great material … but it is not particularly economical. Luckily, there is a perfect solution to make some marble coasters without scratching your pocket too much. Using a few tiles as a base, you can decorate them with decorative paper to achieve a result like this. And to not scratch the table, a little felt at the base
6. FRUIT COASTERS
A cool and colorful option to protect your tables 😉 If you like these coasters, look for a brush you have at home and hands to work. The simple idea: cut out cork circles or buy them in any bazaar and decorate them with different color combinations to emulate fruits. A kiwi, an orange, a watermelon …
7. DIY WATERMELONS
Another idea with fruit motives. Decorating with watermelons is fashionable and we love these so tropical coasters . As in the previous example, they are made with cork and paint. Easy and fun.
8. FOR TRAVELERS
Do you like to decorate with maps ? There are a lot of ways to do it: comfortable, lamps, backpacks … and coasters. These are made using tiles as a base, to which they have stuck on map cutouts. Idea: Create a set of coasters with the map of special places you have visited. A good way to remember it
9. COASTERS WITH SCRABBLE LETTERS
Do you have an old Scrabble at home that you no longer use? Recover it to create these coasters made with chips. Think a little about letter compositions and create hidden messages or funny words.
10. EMOJIS FOR THE TABLE
This is one of the ideas that we have made in Handfie that have more success. If you use emojis as if there were no tomorrow, it’s for you. Cork circles painted black and yellow eva rubber trimmed to make the face of your favorite emoji. You like them?
