Day 5: DIY Cork Coasters

Welcome to Day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas.

Today’s project is a set of DIY cork coasters.

A unique coaster is a great, simple way to give your house an extra dash of personality.

If you’re a wine drinker, bottles accumulate quickly, so save the corks for these easy DIY coasters or you can buy them in stores that sell  wine making kits.

This is a fun craft that also protects your glassware and tabletops!

You only need three items to make these coasters. Corks, glue and ribbon. Each coaster will take 8 corks. You’ll want to make more than one coaster at a time to create a set, so shoot for 16 corks before you get started.

Glue the corks together in pairs and then glue them together in a pattern, like this…

Use the hot glue gun to attach a ribbon of your choice around the cork.

Let them dry completely and enjoy your stylish coasters!
