Cork Coaster Favors {DIY}

Friday, May 24, 2013
I decided to take a page from the Martha Stewart play book and make some personalized favors for an upcoming dinner party.  I wanted something simple, easy to customize to my theme, and functional.  I decided to make glitzy cork coasters.

Prep your patterns - Add painters tape in alternating strips or use reinforcement stickers to make polka dots. You can also use stencils or stickers to spell words or names for a personalized effect.

Paint – paint the exposed parts of the coaster in the colors you want using acrylic paint or mod podge glitter mixture (depending on the look you want). Apply 1-2 coats.

Patience – allow the painted portions to dry (I waited 2 hours to be safe), then remove the tape, stencils, or reinforcements.

Step back and say Ta-da! Your magic is complete! I stacked my coasters and wrapped with ribbon; planning to use them as place cards and party favor take-aways. This was such a fun craft project and I hope my guests enjoy the final product!


  1. Looks great! Would love to see you do a wine cork project. I have a bag full. I want to make a cork board, but I have more than enough for something else crafty.

  2. That can be arranged! I have a ton of wine corks that I also need to put to good use.

  3. Hello, I enjoy reading through your post. I wanted
    to write a little comment to support you.
