Thank you for stopping by Make Something Sunday, where we post a new craft every Sunday from our favorite DIY bloggers! We want to inspire you to create at home with simple and fun crafts. Let's get started!
Today we are featuring a craft from blog Sugar and Cloth. Sugar and Cloth was founded in 2011 by designer Ashley Rose of Houston, Texas. Her blog is filled with fun and easy DIY crafts! Today we will be making guest-blogger Teri's colorful DIY Geometric Coasters. These adorable coasters are a great way to add a pop of color to your space. They can be used individually or slotted together to create a patterned trivet for serving. To complete this craft you will need cork tiles, craft paint, a craft knife, and a paint brush. It is also helpful to use washi tape for making straight lines when painting. Teri used cork tiles 1/3 of an inch thick as a base to make sure the coasters didn’t curl up at the edges. She recommends using anything above 1/4 of an inch thick. Listed in Teri's tutorial is a template for cutting your cork into the hexagon shape. After cutting, tape your coasters and get painting! The color combinations are endless. We think black and gray would look striking!
For extra protection on your coasters you could apply a coat of clear matte Mod Podge, but it isn’t essential. A cute stack of these coasters tied up with a ribbon would make the perfect hostess gift!
