Have you noticed how people get fixated on one or two things you do for entertaining and those set up the tone for the whole event? Well, here is an idea you can do to start your dinner/brunch with a bang: colorful coasters!
This is how the conversation with your guests would go:

How to make colorful coasters that will impress your friends
Difficulty (1-5): 1 Time: 2 hrs Cost: $20-$35
For this project, I got the inspiration from this image I found on Pinterest. The image is from Ampers and Design Studio.
Isn’t so happy and cute? I decided to use a similar motive for my coasters. Here is what I did.
1) Draw your designs with a pencil. Use blue scotch tape for straight lines.
2) Because the cork is uneven, is easy to get lines that bleed. To get straight lines, you need to do a paint stroke starting in the blue tape and moving into the cork. 3) Be creative! I played a couple of podcasts while painting and I like the results.Here are more photos of the coasters:

Thanks, Karen. I think they make your table a lot happier. Agree.
