Japanese Inspired Coasters: Use supplies from the dollar store to upcycle outdate coasters or transform inexpensive cork coasters.
Hello there! Welcome to Day 5 of the Fall Series. This is our final handmade decor DIY for this week. I tell you what, creating handmade decor all week while I was sick was fun but I’m exhausted! I just want to curl up and read a book. I am feeling much better and my little one that was sick is back to her silly self. Bring on the weekend!!
With so many beautiful choices of origami and washi paper at our local 100 Yen Store (aka dollar store), I had to include a Japanese inspired Fall craft.
Japanese Inspired Coasters for Fall!
Here’s what you need:
cork coasters (or this is a great project for thrifted/outdated coasters)
craft, origami, or washi paper
cutting mat or board
decoupage (or 50/50 Elmer’s glue and water)
Place a coaster on a turned over piece of craft paper and trace/cut with the craft knife.
Use a sponge or paint brush to spread a coat of decoupage on the coaster.
Place the cut paper on top and add a second coat of decoupage to seal it.
Smooth out wrinkles and air bubbles and let dry. (Some wrinkles will shrink on their own.)
I love the combination of oranges, reds, and purples in the patterns of the origami paper.
As you can see, I’ve already tested them out! They look great in our living room.
Thanks for joining me all week for all of the fun Fall DIY’s If you missed any, here’s the rundown.
