Learn how to make these quick and easy DIY Textured Cork Coasters using materials you might already have at home. These DIY Coasters are so simple that you can easily make them in under 30 minutes.
These DIY Textured Cork Coasters came about so randomly and I am glad they did because these turned out Beautiful! I repurposed a Mesh Backing from a Faux Succulent sheet and used it to create this interesting texture on plain cork coasters.

I had planned on painting these coasters with a floral pattern in mind but when I stumbled upon the Mesh Backing I just knew this had to be incorporated on these coasters someway somehow.
Regardless I think they look great and I love the bright pops of color with the gold.
Not only is this great for home decor but a neat gift Idea as well.
With all that said let’s jump into the project.
Materials Needed for DIY Textured Cork Coasters
Tutorial for DIY Textured Cork Coasters
So I had purchased a pack of Cork Coasters from the Dollar Store a while back since I was planning on painting them eventually.
And today was the day!
Cork is such a versatile medium and besides using them as coasters you can use it as fun geometric shaped Wall Art to pin your pictures or notes.
I wanted bright pastel shades for the coasters hence I went with this very colorful selection from lavender, to baby pink, yellow and teal.
Using a foam paint brush I applied some paint on the coaster and painted the front and back.
And then let it dry.
I placed it on something elevated so they could dry out evenly.
The cork coasters I was using needed two coats of the paint as the initial design on the cork was still peeking through after one coat of paint.
And now for the fun part!
Are you guys ready to see what I mean by when I say Mesh Backing.
Well here it is!
These are basically leftover sheets/mesh from faux succulents as I mentioned earlier.
I didn’t throw these away since I knew I would be using it for something in the future but I just did not know what for?
I laid out the mesh on a flat surface and then spray painted all four sheets using this gorgeous gold metallic spray paint.
It needed about two light coats for a full coverage.
Let them dry.
I placed one of the circular cork coasters on top of the mesh backing so I could trace an outline which would make it easy for me to cut the square mesh.
When all the pieces were cut in equal sizes it was time for it to be glued onto the coasters.
I used Gorilla Glue to attach the gold texture onto all four coasters.
Let it completely dry before using these coasters.
And there you have it.
What do you guys think?
I think they turned out beautiful.
