DIY Tutorial: Coaster Favors

DIY Coaster Favors

Here is a fantastic DIY party favor project.


Step #1

- Prepare the following materials: discarded wine bottle corks, cardboard sheets, scissors, craft cutter, brown acrylic, paint brush, glue gun or crafter’s glue.

Step #2

- Using the cutter, slice the corks into discs approximately 1/8″ in thickness.

Step #3

- Cut circles from the cardboard, each 4″ in diameter. Paint both sides of each circle with brown acrylic paint. Let these dry thoroughly. [Hint: You can also make a trivet by cutting out a larger diameter—a practical bridal shower gift!]

Step #4

- With the glue gun or crafter’s glue, cover each cardboard circle with a layer of cork discs, letting the edges of the discs touch each other. [Hint: For an interesting design, combine different sizes of cork discs on each cardboard circle. Lay them out on the circle first, to plan the best effect before you actually apply the glue.] Then, use the cutter to trim the parts of the cork discs that extend beyond the cardboard.

Step #5 (optional)

- Personalize each coaster by stamping your monograms or initials on each cork disc using non-fading and waterproof inkpads. Repeat this procedure until you complete the number of coasters needed for your wedding event or to give as unique guest favors. *place each coaster in an organza bag for a finished polished touch.
