Make It! Clay Terrazzo-Inspired Coasters

Terrazzo has recently come back in style and I'm here for it! Because it's a very old flooring material, the newer versions of terrazzo appear more colorful and versatile. To recreate the speckled look of terrazzo for my home, I made a set of simple clay terrazzo-inspired coasters with a variety of colors that fit with the decor of my home. They're easy to make, and you can customize them with your favorite colors!

 Traditionally, terrazzo is made with marble chips set in a resin or concrete and polished. Continue Reading

How To: Make Awesome Paper Cut Coasters!

created at: 11/23/2011

At Curbly, we’ve got a little thing for paper cutting and coasters. But a project that combines two of our loves in one??  Well, that’s what I like to call a ‘craftgasm’.   


Today’s ‘gasm comes courtesy of paper craft master Patricia Zapata of A Little Hut (who will be teaching a class at the Altitude Design Summit–Are you going??).  All you need to make your own paper cut coasters is the following:

  • Blank tiles (super cheap at hardware stores)
  • Paper cut outs
  • Mod Podge or glue
  • Brush
  • Clear spray paint (gloss or satin)
  • Felt circles for the corners of the tiles or felt squares that are as large as the tiles
  • Adhesive for the felt (if not using the self-adhesive kind)

When you’ve gathered your supplies, hit up A Little Hut for the tutorial!   Continue Reading
