Hello 36th Avenue readers!

 This is Eliza from Eliza K Prints, a blog where I share DIY’stutorials, and fun garden projects


I’m so excited to be here today to share a fun and quick tutorial using all recycled materials!

Cork Coasters

Create beautiful and durable coasters using materials already in your home.



First, assemble your materials. It took me almost a year to save this much cork!
Next, assemble your cork into the following shape.
Make sure each cork is touching on all sides.
Cork is not the easiest material to glue, so the more surfaces the glue can adhere to, the better.
After you’ve decided on your layout, begin gluing using the glue pattern below.
Make sure you are working on a surface that you don’t care too much about
 and that you have a layer of protection between the project and your furniture!


Allow the glue to dry and make sure to follow the directions on the packaging.
I used crazy glue but any strong glue would work well.
When all is said and done you should have a coaster that looks something like this:
Feel free to mix it up in terms of shapes and gluing techniques.
If you have any questions, please make sure to drop me a line!

First of all I love this project!

Anything upcicle or ecicle get two thumbs up from me.
