Etceteras: easy summer coasters

Although summer is coming to a close, there’s still plenty of good weather for outdoor gatherings, barbeques or just sitting outside with a cool drink.

I have to confess, these pretty coasters were probably the easiest thing I’ve ever made. These started as dollar store plastic placemats.

I honestly didn’t know if this project would work or not. I wasn’t sure if my circle cutter would cut through the plastic or if once they were cut, the plastic would separate. Amazingly, the plastic cut nicely and easily.

In my photos, I’m using the textured or wrong side of the coaster as the top. The texture seemed more coaster-ish and I liked the muted colors better.
