DIY: Stone Coasters!

Who doesn’t love an easy tutorial? Who doesn’t love an easy tutorial that makes your home that much cuter?

I hope the answer is no one.

When I’m not working, I’m taking long walks down the aisles of home goods, target, and each and every craft store looking for new things to add to my house. Ranging from eclectic picture frames, to rustic wood signs, to any and every type of mason jar (you’ll be seeing quite a few mason jar type posts since that is one of the BIG things for our wedding decorations).

So when I went to Construction Junction (a huge warehouse full of old doors, windows, discarded granite counter tops, chairs, lockers, cabinets… the list goes on and on. Basically a DIYer and remodelers dream) yesterday with Noelle and our Mom I was excited to see what things I could get my hands on.

I gravitated towards the counter tops first looking for one that would really pop as a backdrop for Instagram photos. Then on to the old school windows looking for some decorations for my wedding. It wasn’t until we made our way to the tile section that a light bulb went off in my head. There were so many stacks of beautiful stone tiles, marble tiles, wooden tiles, the options were really endless. I picked up four oversized white marble tiles that would work perfectly for a background for photos (THEY WERE ONLY $2.50 for all four!!!). I strolled down the next aisle and found smaller tiles and immediately thought… COASTERS!!!

I picked up these beautiful jade stone tiles and white marble tiles. FullSizeRender(84)

These colors vibe so well with the aesthetic of my house so I was pretty excited.

So are you ready for the easiest tutorial of your life?

That’s it…

Step 1: Pick which tiles you want to work with.

Step 2: Place four round felt pads to each corner of the tiles. For extra hold you can also place a dot of hot glue to the back of the pads before placing them in each corner.

And that is it…

Seriously so super easy. And not only do they look awesome in your house, but they are an awesome gift for housewarming parties or as an extra thing to throw in with your bridal shower presents.

I wrapped up a few with suede rope and faux leather trim as gifts for some friends.

I think the best part of it all is that I spent a total of $12 for FIVE sets of coasters. You seriously cannot beat it.

I hope you guys enjoyed this DIY tutorial and if you guys make coasters of your own we’d love to see them!

As always,
