DIY – Do It Yourself!!


Well, when you do it yourself, you can make it for way lesser price and the attachment towards the piece your create is way more than you own it. 🙂

Anyways, I wanted to buy coasters from pretty long time. Personally, I wasn’t never keen nor wasn’t sure on how often I use. So, to start with I got a set from IKEA. Since I want to go organic I got plain round cork coasters. It comes in a set of 4 and are quite decent to resist heat from a coffee/tea cup.

Surprisingly, I started using them often( cold/hot drinks) but then they were too plain and boring.  Since I stack them up on my coffee table, thought I will make them look fancy and took a set of markers and made some designs and I can’t believe how cute they turned out. 🙂


It is such an easy and quick project and the time took was not more than 30 mins. I did a search on google for “Party Signs” and “Doodle” and found some really cute ones. Taking those images as base I made these cute signs on mine…:-)

On the other side of the coasters I made signs for hot drinks..:) I have only 3 because I wanted to draw Starbucks Logo but it didn’t come out as expected…:( I am going to cover it with green acrylic paint… :-P. The rest looks like this:


I used a clear acrylic sealer and it is water resistant spray. It doesn’t let the coasters soak when you place a cold drink. Make sure you don’t use until the sealer is dry which might take a day or two.

The supplies for this project are:


I hope you enjoy today’s project and see you soon..:-)

Happy Weekend!!
