  • Choose 16 tiles for your coaster. Make sure that these tiles form four letter-words to add a quirky detail to your coaster.
  • Align the first word to your corkboard then repeat the process for the next three words.
  • Using a glue gun or strong glue, carefully stick the tiles to the corkboard.
  • After attaching the tiles to the corkboard, let it dry for a few minutes. You can also stack a heavy item such as a hardbound book to flatten the area.
  • Once it’s dry, trim the excess edges of the corkboard using a sharp pair of scissors or a utility knife. Add it to your dining table and serve drinks to your friends with your crafted piece.

RL Tip: For a glossy finish, you may spray paint the tiles with your chosen color.
