Our DIY coasters are sure to be a real talking point when you offer your guests a drink. Or tie them up with a pretty bow and you have a highly original birthday gift! An extra bonus: making coasters takes next to no effort. In this quick DIY blog, we’ll explain how to make coasters in just two easy steps.

You’ll need

The basis for the mirrored coasters

To make the coasters, we’re using mirror acrylic sheet, 3 mm thick. We opted to use an acrylic sheet with a mirror finish in silver colour but you can choose any colour you like. In our webshop, you’ll find an array of different colours to suit every taste, from fluorescent green to opal red.

Step 1: Order the acrylic sheet cut to the size you require

Decide the number of coasters you want to make – 4 or 6 makes a nice number for a gift set – and order the acrylic sheets. Naturally, we’ll cut the coasters for you for free. The coasters in our blog measure 10 x 10 cm.

Step 2: Smooth the edges

If you don’t want rounded edges, you can skip this step. Using a piece of grain 360 sandpaper, smooth the sharp edges of your coasters. Go over all the coasters until you’re happy with the finish. Your coasters are now ready to use!
