The description of Modern DIY Concrete Coasters

Made with concrete and cardboard inserts. we are going to revisit the common household coasters! Made with concrete and cardboard inserts, these little DIY Coasters are elevated to modern and chic conversational pieces of table decor!

Materials and tools:
pourable concrete mix, thick and glossy magazine covers, card stock, or cereal boxes for making the molds, corrugated cardboard for making the inserts, plastic containers to mix concrete, plastic bags for curing concrete, exacto knife or scissors, hot glue and tape for the molds, gloves, dust mask.

- Step 1: Make Molds and Decorative Accents Start by drawing 4 inch diameter circles onto card stock – one more great use for a can of tomatoes! I love the modern graphic elements such as triangles, raindrops, strips, etc. Cut out shapes from the corrugated cardboard, arrange and glue them onto the card stock inside the circles we drew. Cut long strips of thick magazine paper at 1/4″ to 3/8″ thick.

- Step 2: Sift and Mix Concrete Screen those really big chunks of aggregates out of the Quikrete 3000lb mix- a plastic nursery pot works great, and leave some small aggregates for strength. Mix the concrete following the proportions recommended on the bag, using the screened concrete as if it is the original mix.

- Step 3: Curing Process -important! Let the coasters stay in the molds and cure for at least 3 days by misting them daily and wrapping them in plastic sheet.

- Step 4 : Final Touches Clean the surface of the coasters. Brush the entire surface with Modpodge to protect them from moisture, stains, and to keep the inserts in place. Attach 3 mini felt pads on the back side of each coaster to protect your table surface.
