20 minutesDifficultyEasy

Step 1: Everything you need for the project

In addition to the wine corks you need a cardboard box, from which you cut a small square, as well as glue and a box cutter.

Step 2: Cut the corks in half

Cut each cork from top to bottom into two even pieces.

Step 3: Stick the wine cork halves on the cardboard square

Cut one or more squares from the cardboard box in the size you want the coasters to have. Once you have the paper board, stick the wine cork halves onto it.​

Step 4: Stick all cork halves without gaps in-between

​Please note that there should be no big gaps between these cork halves.

Step 5: The finished result

So the drink coasters should look something like this. Each piece is unique!

Step 6: It's ready for use...

Be it coffee, water or cold drinks, you can now take the coasters in use. Of course, they are also suitable for wine glasses!
