I have coasters in my living room, in my kitchen, and in my office. I really love those little things, and here’s why… because they are small pieces of prettiness that add a little touch of fun to my life. I’ve always bought mine and never given much thought to how to make coasters myself. Until now. These tutorials that show you how to make coasters are probably going to change my life.

 How to Make Coasters


First of all, let me say how intrigued I am by learning to make resin coasters. My mind is running wild with the idea that I can cast anything I want in resin. I’m¬†genuinely worried that resin may become what lace and hot glue was to me in the 80s. My family is still scarred by the famed “lace & hot glue” era.

PS: You can get resin on Amazon for less than 20 bucks.
