DIY Coasters: 40 fun projects to try

When I learned to knit at age 15, I started with a scarf. Coasters, to me, are the scarf of the crafting world – if you’re just getting started, this is perfect place to begin. They are easy, small . . . quick.

You can buy tiles from Home Depot and have them decoupaged in minutes, or you can glue pom poms to cork and be done with it. You can also practice many techniques: sewing, painting, weaving, crochet, and more.

If you want some DIY coasters, look no further – I’ve put together a collection of 40 ideas to get you started. You’ll be a crafting expert in no time. Just scroll down to see them!
