How to make beautiful and durable
DIY Cork Coasters using materials you may already have in your own home!
Hello 36th Avenue readers!
This is Eliza from
Eliza K Prints, a blog where I share DIY’s, tutorials, and fun garden projects. I’m so excited to be here today to share a fun and quick tutorial using all recycled materials! Here it is!
Cork Caster Tutorial
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:
I love this project too and I think it would make a great gift!
