Coasters

Prevent water rings and coffee stains with DIY coasters! Simply cut the mat into circles to make mini-trays for beverages. Since yoga mats are absorbent, it will keep any moisture from seeping through your furniture. 

RL Tip: To make even circles, use a medium-sized cookie cutter to draw patterns before doing it with scissors! 

Shelf Liners

Most mats are made from slip-resistant rubber—making it ideal as shelf liners. Protect your ceramics from unwanted chipping by lining your kitchen with smaller yoga mats.

Cup Sleeves 

These are great for taking your morning coffee on-the-go or keeping kids from accidentally burning their fingers when holding warm sippy cups. Cut out strips from bright-colored mats to keep it fun!

Placemats

If you find keeping fabric placemats clean quite difficult, cut-out extra yoga mats are great alternatives. These are also perfect for adding a pop of color to your table setting when you have guests over.
