Craft ideas with cork

DIY cork coasters made with masking tape

Are you looking for an unusual decoration idea for your next party? If so, this idea may interest you: how to decorate cork coasters. It's easy to jazz up a set of plain drinks mats simply by applying strips of washi tape (or masking tape) in a criss-cross pattern to leave blank stripes when removed.

Next, add some touches of colour using edding Permanent Spray, which is available in a wide range of shades. When the paint is dry, simply peel off the adhesive tape – and that's how to create your own coasters! If you give each of your guests a different one, they need never get their drinks mixed up again.
