Steps: DIY Cork Coasters

Hexagon Stencil: To make these DIY coasters, you’ll need a piece of cork (I used a cork pot mat from the dollar store). You’ll also need a hexagon stencil. If you don’t have a hexagon stencil, you can print one and trace around it. I used this printable and went into my print settings to adjust the custom scale percentage until I got a size I liked. I think I used around 75%.

Cut Hexagon Shapes Out of Cork: Trace around your stencil and cut the cork out using an X-Acto knife.

Tape Designs: Using tape will help you get clean, crisp edges. Apply it according to the designs you want to tape.

Paint: Paint the first and second blocked-off section. (For some designs, you’ll have to let the first color dry before reapplying the tape for the second color/shape.)
