Some Tips on DIY Coasters

Making homemade coasters gives you a great opportunity to reuse and recycle as many things as you can think of. Don’t overlook your recycling, paper scrap, and even fabric scrap bins! Old magazines, books, and photo albums are also great resources! Coasters may very well be one of the most frugal but still classy DIY gift options out there. For the tile backed options, check out the discount section of hardware and building supply stores, and yard sales! Scan the sales at your local craft and department stores for things like chalk paint and markers and don’t forget to check out the craft isle at the dollar stores as well.

Using any of the tutorials above you can easily personalize, modify, and gift a uniquely useful and thoughtful item. Any home owner or office professional can and will appreciate a lovely set of homemade coasters as a gift, and while you’re at it, you should make a set or two for yourself!
