Homemade Drink Coaster Projects
Mason Jar Lid Coasters from Juggling Act Mama: These little coasters are so cute and easy to make! You’ll be able to customize them with different colors, patterns, or even holiday motifs. Plus, they can help you dress up your kitchen table as well. I love that these will coordinate nicely with my décor no matter what it may change into in the future! You might just find yourself making more than one set for all the people on your list this year.
Fabric Coasters from Juggling Act Mama: Warm up your home with these easy fabric coasters. This fun and easy sewing project makes a lovely handmade gift, and they're a great way to up the cozy factor in your own home! They help soften up the look of coffee tables and work fabulously at preventing glass rings on your tables. The best part is they're easily washable, and since they're double-sided, you can just flip 'em over if you get a stain on one side.
Crochet Coasters from Sustain My Craft Habit: Wondering how you can crochet a coaster? Here's a simple tutorial with an easy pattern that you can use to make a set right now. Pair these cozy coasters with some nice mugs for a thoughtful DIY gift for friends and family.
Hexagon Marble Coasters from Merriment Design: You're going to love these DIY marble coasters. These modern coasters only cost $5 each to make! Make them as a great Mother's Day gift, or give these beautiful stone coasters along with the perfect coffee table book as a one-of-a-kind housewarming present. They can also be used in any room, from the kitchen to the bathroom (say, under your cup of makeup brushes, for instance), because they are so durable and easy to clean.
Sharpie and Alcohol Coasters from Amber Oliver: Want to live on the edge a little? You'll need FIRE to make these gorgeous, colorful coasters. You'll need markers, alcohol, and a flame to burn off the alcohol and set the color. You'll scribble on the tiles, pour the isopropyl alcohol, and then quickly burn it away to leave a unique pattern behind. Make sure you take the proper precautions on your work surface before setting the alcohol aflame. It only burns for a couple of seconds, but you'll definitely need a fire extinguisher nearby just in case.
Agate Slice Coasters from Moms Who Save: You can find these beautiful agate coasters in stores, but they have a high price tag. Who has a hundred bucks to spend on coasters? Luckily, you can make your own for much less! You'll need an agate stone which is easy to find at any craft store or online and gold leafing or silver paint to gild the edges. You'll have a stunning set of high-end coasters at a reasonable price in no time. Make some as gifts and for yourself!
Macrame Coasters from Macra Made: Macrame has made a big comeback in the last couple of years, and I am all for it! You can use any color string you want—neutral or bright colors work well, but if you're feeling more modern, then natural cotton macrame is the way to go. These coasters don't take long at all—just an hour (or two) depending on how fast your hands work, and it's something relaxing you can do with your hands while you watch television.
Rustic Deer Antler Coasters from H2O Bungalow: These simple coasters were made by painting a stencil onto blank cork coasters—it's as easy as that! Making the scrap wood storage box adds an extra rustic touch and makes it a bit nicer if you're giving them as gifts, too. Wouldn't these look lovely in a cabin?
Wine Cork Coasters from Sustain My Craft Habit: The wine corks pile up quickly, especially during the holidays, so why not make something with them? These simple coasters only take a few minutes using wine corks, felt fabric scraps, paint in various colors, and your glue gun. Have your family save their wine corks so you can make lots of these colorful coasters to use at all your gatherings.
Resin Coasters with Sea Glass from Lovely Indeed: Making resin coasters is a lot of fun, and they're so easy to put together! You could use sea glass or any other small, flat object that you want. Resin coasters are an excellent way of preserving memories. Some other things you can add to resin include flower petals, sand dollars, confetti, leaves, and so on. These coasters were made with a beach house in mind. What would you include in yours?
Rope Coasters from Craftsy Hacks: Rope coasters are simple to make, and they look really fun and boho. They're a good way of getting those beach vibes all year long while keeping your tables clean too! All you need is some rope, a backing (fabric is light and flexible), scissors, and a glue gun.
Geometric Leather Coasters from Sum of Their Stories: These geometric coasters are a great way to use scrap leather, but if you don't have any or prefer not to use real leather, pleather works just fine, too. The fabric peeking out from underneath can be whatever color you want. Will you cut the same designs into all the leather pieces or vary your designs? It's up to you! These make a great DIY gift for a guy.
Scrabble Tile Coasters from Simply Darrling: Do you have an old Scrabble game you no longer use anymore? Use those tiles to make some fun-themed coasters to set your favorite beverages on. You can also get Scrabble tiles really cheaply on Amazon, so no worries if you don't want to part with your game. What four-letter words for drinks can you think of to make your Scrabble-themed coasters?
Pin this list of DIY coasters so you'll be able to make a set for yourself or some DIY housewarming gifts in a pinch!
