Handicrafts is only an activity for the cold season? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! When the desire to do handicrafts gets in touch, it doesn’t ask about the season. You can also implement many creative and unique DIY projects in summer. How about making coasters yourself, for example? You can use a number of materials that are not expensive at all. You probably already have some at home. Creativity simply knows no bounds here. Take a look at the following craft ideas and let them inspire you. You will soon have original coasters that will become absolute eye-catchers on the table and chest of drawers. Unsightly stains from glasses and cups full of water, wine or coffee no longer stand a chance.

Make maritime coasters yourself
What goes best with the wonderful summer time if not maritime decoration? You can add a touch of sea breeze to your homemade coasters by decorating them with the appropriate symbols. Anchors, sea stars, fish and shells are just some of the most popular ones. In addition, the choice of materials is not without importance. Some materials, such as white or natural rope, are simply made for it. They bring back summer holiday memories and immediately take us to dreamy beaches where time stands still.

DIY coasters made of cork or wood
If it should be more natural and rustic, wood and cork are unsurpassed. With their optical warmth and unmistakable structure, both materials make an excellent coaster. For example, you can get thin cork sheets from the craft store and cut them out in the shape of a circle using a cutter. Then you can decorate them with a marker or some acrylic paint as you wish. Dots, stripes, little flowers or waves, everything that pleases is allowed.
There are cork sheets of different thicknesses that you can choose freely

Another craft idea is to work with whole wine corks. You can simply collect them or buy them from Amazon or Ebay. In principle, 8 pieces are enough to create a coaster like this one below in a matter of seconds. You can use a thin cork board as a base again, this time cut out in a square shape. The corks are then glued to it. You can lay them in one direction or twist them a bit as shown in the photo. This way the design looks much more original.
