Sharing is caring!

Did you know that mason jar lids actually have another purpose? Most don’t know, but I think you made the cut and I’ll clue you in. 

Mason jar lids make the best little DIY drink coasters! You will adore the unique drink coasters you can make with them. 

You will be surprised by the outcome you get with these mason jar lids. I would have never guessed how amazing they would turn out. 

All of the supplies you will need can be found on Amazon for good prices. You can also find them at your local craft store as well.

Unique Drink Coasters

It will not take you a long time to turn your simple mason jar lids into unique drink coasters. But you will still need to be a little bit patient. 

While it does not take a long time to make them, you will want to give them plenty of time to dry. Both the mod podge and paint will need around an hour. 

I suggest an hour because it is better safe than sorry. It would be a bummer if you started the next step with wet supplies and had to start over. 

Other than drying time, you will see that this craft does not take long. Plus, you will be able to use them for as long as you would like. 

You can make each DIY coaster different. Maybe you want to gift some to your friends and family as well. I’m sure they will love them!

Each coaster can have a different look, and maybe even fit a different holiday. Just get some different, festive stamps to use. 

Home decor is so much better when you have done the DIY project yourself. These cork coasters are no different.

You can make yourself a little coaster set for protecting your tables in the living room or counters in the kitchen.

All of this will be made super easy with step by step instructions for you! So why not embark on this coaster project?

No more coasters made from cheap wood slices, you’ve have leveled up to the cool coasters.

Tile coasters, leather coasters, and marble coasters are nice and all, but not what we want anymore.

Maybe you can make some side cash selling unique drink coasters made from mason jar lids on Etsy or eBay. Hmmm…I think I have some shopping to do.

Instructions

  1. Take one of your mason jar lids and using your pencil, trace it around the cork and cut. Repeat for each coaster you plan to make.one mason jar lid on a square of cork with pen next to it preparing to tracelids traced on corks and cut out
  2. Lay your cork circles on some parchment paper and using a brush, paint an even coat of paint and allow to dry completely. I suggest at least 30-60 minutes. If the color isn’t solid as desired, apply one additional thin, even layer and allow to dry COMPLETELY! At least 60 minutes, or even overnight. If not, your ink could streak.one thick layer of yellow paint being applied to circular corks
  3. Once your paint is dry, apply a solid layer of ink to the stamp. Center the stamp onto the cork circle and press and hold for a few seconds and lift. Although this says waterproof and permanent, you still need to let this ink dry COMPLETELY before moving onto the next step. We waited 60 minutes.adding solid layer of black ink to stamp to stamp onto yellow cork
  4. Using a clean brush, completely cover each cork circle with a thin, even layer of Mod Podge and allow to dry completely (I suggest at least 60 minutes). Be sure to coat both sides I suggest giving each one two coats.adding thin layer of mod podge to yellow painted and stamped corks once paint and stamp have completely dried
  5. Plugin your hot glue gun and allow it to warm up before using. Using your hot glue gun, attach each of the cork circles, stamped side up, to the inside of each of the mason jar lids. Wait about a minute and you know you are ready to enjoy your new DIY Stamped Mason Jar Ring Coasters!stamped coasters glued into mason jar lids
