DIY Geometric Painted Cork Coasters

It’s super easy and fun to make. I really let my hand do the work. I didn’t plan the shapes I just went with the flow and even though now I would have done a few things differently, I loved the shapes that came out!

This craft was inspired by my sweet friend Lauren from the thinking closet. She always inspired me to make cute and fun things. This is another one of them.

I used my favorite colors {ahem, my new favorite colors LOL}. I got obsessed with turquoise but I still have a deep love for my pink. I added the silver color and a bit of purple to make it pop. I LOVE the result and who knew I even end up using the colors on my Theme design ha ha.

Want to try making these cute geometric painted cork coasters?

Let’s do it!

Supplies:

  • Plain cork coasters
  • Acrylic paint {and metallic paint if you want}
  • Masking tape
  • Brush

First make sure to clean your coasters. Free them of dust.

With the asking tape, make random shapes. Cut the masking tape in different widths so it’s all uneven. I made them like this:

Then start painting. I didn’t have turquoise color, so I made it. The picture makes it look more bluish, but believe me it’s turquoise LOL.

I painted different spots with different sizes with each color getting this:

Let it dry for a few minutes {these paints dry really fast}.

When dry peal off the masking tape to reveal the result!

Tadaaaaa!!!! LOVE it. I might do new ones but with thinner lines of masking tape so there are more painted areas. But I still love the result.

That’s it! I made all 4 of these in less than an hour and I couldn’t be happier. I’m planning on making some more and try different shapes! We can always use different materials too, like wood, plastic. Anything can be useful with a little imagination!
