Longtime no craft but today I give you diy waterproof coasters that I made with fabric, paper and of course cellophane tape. Lying halfway down, sipping red wine (with no coaster protecting my furniture) and watching a documentary about how to reuse and recycle paper on a Saturday morning. It hit me instantly that the noodles packaging box was empty.
Thinking of all the possible ways to reuse this packaging box, I realised that the cold fuzzy wine was dripping water on my furniture – not like it was the first time it has happened – I wiped off the water then the idea of a making a cup coaster popped in my head. Keeping in mind that I still have to make also make a candle holder which is another good reason I had to make this diy coaster so I could protect my furniture.
A coaster will help you to protect your furniture from having rims caused by hot drinks or cold drinks. You can also place a flower vase on it depends on what you like. If you are like me and you are thinking of ways to reuse old packaging box, or want to protect your furniture or you like crafts, then lets make diy waterproof coasters.
What You Will Need To Make Your Own DIY Waterproof Coasters
How to Make A DIY Waterproof Coaster
- With a pen, mark out a circle on the fabric, wrapping paper, packaging box, cardboard. Make sure you use the same dimension for all circle. I used a tea mug as my template.
2. Cut out the shape with a craft knife/scissors. Now we have fabric, wrapping paper, cardboard and packaging box all cut out
3. Glue the fabric/wrapping paper to one side of the cut-out from the packaging box and the cardboard to the other side of the cut-out from the packaging box. You can use any thing you want as the top surface or bottom of your coaster. I decided to use a distinct material for the top, so I can identify the sides.
4. Allow to the glue to dry. Then cover the sides of the coaster with cellophane tape. The cellophane tape serves as a waterproof material. It protects liquid from penetrating through the coaster which makes the coaster last longer and also protects your furniture.
All the supplies will cost you so little. You literally do not have to break the bank for little household props. Aside from creating contents for my blog, most of the time I make the things I need for my little spare. I share them because if I need them, someone else might be in need them.
I enjoy taking out my time making crafts. It helps me think clearly. From here onward, there will be more craft coming your way.
