Happy Monday! The sun is out, the weather is warming up, flowers are starting to bloom and it’s time to start hosting friends over to enjoy a nice evening outside and a refreshing adult beverage. Today, I am sharing how to make Easy DIY Ikat Cork Coasters for such an occasion!
The supplies for this project could not be any simpler!

I used five different paints on my coasters for a nice layered ikat look.
1. Start with your base color and paint on simple diamond shapes. Be sure to fill them in and then “mess up” the edges of the diamond shape. If they are too perfect looking, it won’t give an ikat look.
2 and 3. Using your next color, paint slightly smaller diamonds over top the base color. Fill them in and “mess up” edges again.
4, 5 and 6. Simply continue layering your paints on top of each other. Be sure to allow for dry time in between paints so they don’t start to mix.
After you’ve given the cork coasters adequate time to dry, it’s time to break your favorite drink ingredients!
I love the bold pop of color these coasters can bring to your table, too.
I’ve got my easy DIY Ikat Cork Coasters and now I am ready for a drink. I’ve been loving Cucumber Mint Moscow Mules, but what is your favorite summer beverage? I’m looking to mix it up a little bit, so please share below!
