Drinking wine and crafting are two of my favorite pastimes, and today I'm combining them into one fun, super simple DIY project. I'm sharing an easy no-sew felt wine coaster project that functions as both a coaster and a wine marker so you don't drink someone else's wine by mistake. Win win!

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.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but for some reason I’m a total sucker for coasters. Maybe because they’re small, cute, and functional?? Who knows… But I do know that these DIY color-blocked coasters are just too fantastic not to share!

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
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)
