DIY: Cork Coasters

Christmas is in 2 days!! I am so excited! Today I am sharing a DIY for a last minute Christmas gift. I made these coasters in literally less than an hour and I am so excited to give them to Michael's family tomorrow! I think they came out really cute, and I really hope his parents, and sister like them.

I went to my local Michael's and bought these cork squares. They came in packs of 4 and weren't that expensive! I think $2 each. The first time around I tried to sketch out the letter and paint it, but that didn't work out so great. So second trip to Michael's and I bought the pack of letters.
I used masking tape to make the stripes, taped the letters down, and used dots for the polka dots. Just make sure everything is taped down really good and there isn't any parts lifting up or the paint will drip.
After everything was taped I spray painted them making sure everything was good and covered. Once the paint was dry just pull off the tape and ta da!
To make them look all cute I hand lettered gift tags that I bought from Target's dollar section, and tied them up with twine!
