Coasters are very useful at preventing stains on surfaces but they can be quite expensive, especially if you want to get nice looking ones. Newspaper coasters are super easy to make and actually look really nice so here’s how to make them.
You will need:
– newspaper (it depends how big you want your coasters to be but I used three sheets but I cut them in half to form six sheets)
– sticky tape
1. Fold each sheet of newspaper into a long strip, as thick as you want the height of the coasters to be, and glue the end to finish it off.
2. Apply sticky tape to the end of a strip and attach another strip to it. Continue this until all the strips have been joined into a really long strip of newspaper.
3. Roll up the strip up as tight as possible until you have coiled the whole long strip of newspaper. Put a piece of sticky tape on the end to keep it in place.
